Product Description

Whether you’re a beginner grill enthusiast or the king of backyard chefs, no grilling repertoire is complete without the Napoleon Apollo™ Charcoal Grill and Water Smoker. This little-big guy can go from full sized smoking machine to a portable charcoal grill with a quick flip of the toggle latches. The three tiered; stacking chambers make it just that easy.  The heavy gauge porcelain enameled body circulates the smoke around the food imparting the delicate smoke flavor into meats, cheeses, and anything else you can think of to smoke.

QUALITY AND CONTROL

Smoking anything takes patience and practice. Using the sliding air vents located at the top and bottom of the Apollo™ you can control the burn rate and temperature of the coals. The ACCU-PROBE™ temperature gauge gives you the ability to monitor the temperature of the Apollo™ as you work. Temperature eyelets allow you to monitor temperatures at different levels within the chamber for increased precision. When you notice that your heat or smoke levels are dropping, you don’t have to disassemble the whole grill, just pop open the easy access doors and add your charcoal or wood chips.    

Smoke up to 3 racks of ribs, a large pork shoulder, and a whole chicken at once using all three tiers of the Napoleon Apollo™ Charcoal Grill And Water Smoker. Two 18.75-inch cooking grids give you a large area to work with. The Apollo™ comes with a charcoal basket that elevates the lit charcoal off the bowl of the Apollo™ providing more even heating and easier lighting. The water pan can hold up to 10 litres (2.6 gallons) of liquid, water, beer, you name it, and will add steam to your smoked delicacies, keeping them moist. Smoke fish and sausages, ribs and more with the 5 included meat hooks. Hang your favorite foods from the lid of the Apollo™ Charcoal Grill And Water Smoker, there’s enough room to hang up to a 3-foot long fish!

The Apollo™ by Napoleon is first and foremost a smoker, but break it down to the portable charcoal grill and you have a little powerhouse. This portable little orb can grill over 16 large hamburgers at once on one cooking grid.You will never have to worry about feeding a crowd when you travel with this portable charcoal grill. Napoleon’s Apollo™ heats quickly and burns long, whether you use it in its small, medium or full sized setup.

I bought this on clearance, you could say i stole it ($100). i have used this to smoke ribs, brisket, pork butt, turkey, and chicken. You can put enough food on it to feed a small army. Once the vents are adjusted, it will hold your tempurature for hours. Using the minion method with natural charcoal briquettes i can get 10 to 12 hours out of the fuel. Huge water pan. Tempurature guage is fairly accurate. I especially appreciate the fact that I can take a section out for smaller smokes. My only complaint is/are the latches on the access doors are chintzy, but other than that, it is a fantastic smoker.

I smoke a lot of stuff in this thing. I can't make enough pork shoulder. I am able to do 13 hour cooks with one load of charcoal and wood if I do it right.

I've had the AS300K for about 2 months. I've successfully smoked 3-4 whole chickens, 2 pork butts, and a couple of fatties. So far, I love this. It doesn't take up a ton of room in my garage. It's easy to move. I only bring it outside for cooking, so I'm sure it will last a very long time, not being exposed to weather. The real beauty is that it will maintain temps all day with very little fuss. For a smoker that takes up a very small footprint, it would be hard to find another that will hold steady temps with little fire maintenance for as long as this one will. Of course, the Weber Smokey mountain is a very similar smoker, but I like how this is more versatile. I'll explain more below about this versatility, which is why I bought this over the WSM. I'll fill the coal basket completely with unlit charcoal (briquettes or lump) with 3 wood chunks buried within the outer edges. Then I'll pull out enough coals from the center (ala Minion method) to create about a 5-6" hole. Light th
