FOUR hears from three Michelin Star chef, Juan Amador, about why the Napoleon Grill is the nobility of outdoor living…

It all began in 1976 when a small steel fabrication business launched by Wolfgang Schroeter started manufacturing steel railings in Barrie, Ontario, Canada. At that time, no one could imagine the incredible future that lay ahead for Wolf Steel Ltd.

Since the first wood stove rolled off the production line over 30 years ago, Wolf Steel’s commitment was to be distinctive and successful in everything they do. The original stove featured a solid cast iron two-door design and was produced in a one thousand square foot manufacturing facility. By 1981, the name “Napoleon” was born and with it, the first single glass door with Pyroceram high temperature ceramic glass—a first in the industry. This was the first of many milestones for Wolf Steel and over the next few years, the demand for Napoleon’s wood stoves grew beyond Ontario’s borders to the rest of Canada, the United States and Europe.
