    The most high-end backyard BBQ I saw at the National Hardware Show.

    The most expensive backyard grill I saw at the show was the Napoleon 665. Walking down the aisle I was just drawn to it by the glowing 'tech blue' control knobs. There were quite a few other people eyeing it too. Since this model was indoors it wasn't being demostrated. But I did get quite a bit of info on it. As you read, get a price in your head. I'll tall what it is at the end here. “The new Prestige PRO Series PRO665RSIB Gas Grill comes with 8 burners in total, and can grill up to 42 4” hamburgers at once. In addition to burgers, you can grill gourmet meals on the 9.5 - millimeter, stainless steel Wave cooking grids. While you’re busy grilling up the perfect steak, or slow grilling the perfect roast, you can cook amazing side dishes on the ceramic infrared side burner. Not just for quickly searing the perfect steak, the ceramic brick heats to 1,800°F in just over 30 seconds and can be used to make sauces, boil water, and even sauté. Other features include: 98,000 BTU's, Integrated Wood Chip Smoker Tray, Interior Lights, 1140 Inch Total Cooking Areas, Jetfire Ignition. And the price? …..$2999.00. (And it's not their priciest unit, just the most expensive that I saw.)

    It's here on Amazon with free shipping, which is good, because it weighs over 300 pounds. (Free shipping is  not Amazon Prime shipping, however.) 

    Company video: (It's a commercial, but it does show off the 665 quite well. You can easily skip  the 1st minute and still see almost all the features.
