Making backyard barbecue easier than ever!

Slow ‘N Sear 2.0, now with 50% more searing power than our Slow ‘N Sear Original, takes backyard grilling and smoking in a charcoal kettle to the next level, AGAIN! Turn a “basic” Weber kettle into the most versatile outdoor cooking machine on the market – indirect slow cooking, high heat searing, roasting, baking…you can have it all with Slow ‘N Sear!

  • The perfect fit for your 22” kettle (see gallery for exact dimensions)
  • Charcoal basket holds one chimney-full (~80 – 100 briquettes) of coals that provides 8+ hours of uninterrupted low ‘n slow (225° F) cooking – that’s a lot of $$$ in charcoal savings!
  • Or load up the basket with fully lit briquettes for high-heat cooking (400+ F) perfect for chicken or pizza!
  • The removable water reservoir holds just over one quart of water for 5+ hours of steam generation (at 225° F) and creates an effective thermal barrier between the coals and the indirect cooking zone
  • Ventilated bottom plate is great for lump charcoal users and makes cleaning up after the cook a breeze

What’s new?  Let’s look a little closer at the new features of Slow ‘N Sear 2.0:

  • The hand-welded water reservoir can be removed!
    • Create a 30% larger sear zone for the perfect Cold Grate Technique sear!
    • Holds 20% more water than Slow ‘N Sear or Slow ‘N Sear Plus
  • Redesigned ventilation pattern in the base plate to maximize airflow even during the longest cooks.
  • Stainless steel rivet-based manufacturing technique for the basket – simple, strong, and durable.  Significantly reduces warping under high-heat conditions.

More steel!  Each Slow ‘N Sear 2.0 is made out of 7+ pounds of high-quality 16-gauge 430 stainless steel.

What makes the Slow ‘N Sear special?  

The charcoal basket holds a chimney-full of coals and keeps them away from the side of the kettle.  The basket holds more than twice as much fuel as a standard charcoal basket – you can cook for over 8 hours without needing to refill charcoal.  But more importantly the basket helps keep heat inside the kettle so you’re not warming up the air outside the grill.  This means more efficient fuel burn and your kettle will be less sensitive to ambient conditions (less babysitting the grill).

The removable water reservoir spans the length of the charcoal basket acting as a thermal barrier between the coals and the indirect side of the grill.  When filled with water (it holds one quart) it generates consistent steam (5+ hours) at low ‘n slow temperatures providing moisture for smoke adherence and a humid environment that keeps temperatures stable across the entire indirect cooking surface.

SOME WORDS FROM  OUR CUSTOMERS

My Slow ‘N Sears are the best accessories I’ve ever gotten for a grill!! Using one now for my first Slow ‘N Sear brisket (14+ lbs after trimming). It held the cook temp solid, and I didn’t add coals until 9 hours in!

David H.

The Slow ‘N Sear held strong at 235 for just under 5 hours and allowed me to mow grass for 3 hours with no babysitting. It’s almost like cheating for low and slow.

Jeff G.

I got my Slow ‘N Sear and it made my BBQ so much better. Friends and family always rave about it. Slow ‘n Sear = Easy to use / great support group / plenty of how to videos / great customer service… oh, and the food comes out amazing!

Vincent S.

Best accessory I have in my collection!

Ronnie P.

The Slow N Sear is the best accessory you can get for the Weber Kettle. [It] makes it possible for average backyard griller to cook some serious smoked meats!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why a new version?2019-07-29T15:38:01+00:00
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We could not keep pace with the demand for the current version of the Slow ‘N Sear/Slow ‘N Sear Plus.  Changes to the manufacturing process allowed us to update the design, maintain the same price, and deliver the same performance and quality of the Slow ‘N Sear Plus.

How is the Slow ‘N Sear 2.0 different from the Slow ‘N Sear Plus?2019-07-29T15:38:00+00:00
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Aside from the removable reservoir, functionally, they are similar in performance.  Outer dimensions are unchanged.

Can I take out the water reservoir during a low ‘n slow cook so I can hold more coals?2019-07-29T15:38:00+00:00
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We don’t recommend it. While it’s the perfect place to hold water, the reservoir also functions as a double-wall barrier between the coals and the indirect side of the grill.  Removing the reservoir during an indirect cook will create “hot spots” on the indirect zone that would not be present with the reservoir in place.

What’s the difference between 430 and 304 stainless steel?2019-07-29T15:38:00+00:00
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Type 430 stainless steel is made up of 17 percent chromium and 0.12 percent carbon while 304 stainless steel contains 18 percent chromium and 0.08 percent carbon.  Both are high quality steels that are resistant to rust and corrosion and can withstand the extreme temperatures created by the Slow ‘N Sear and will provide many years of use.  Our warranty remains the same.

Will you keep making the Slow ‘N Sear and Slow ‘N Sear Plus?2019-07-29T15:38:00+00:00
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Slow ‘N Sear 2.0 replaces these two products.  Once existing inventory has been depleted, Slow ‘N Sear and Slow ‘N Sear Plus will be discontinued.   Warranties on those products will continue to be honored.

Will you make a 26″ version?2019-08-28T15:51:00+00:00
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

No need! Our Slow ‘N Sear 2.0 works extremely well in the 26″ kettle, and we recommend it without reservation.

    Works exactly as advertised

    Sean Breit

    How often do you buy something based on a video or by reading reviews, and find it to be less than was said? I got a Weber Kettle 22” for Fathers’ Day this year and have been watching videos, learning as I go. The Slow ‘N Sear has been well-represented on YouTube, both from ABC and other YouTubers. I’ve tried the “Charcoal Snake” method and the basic charcoal baskets to help provide indirect heat during the long cooks. The problem with each is regulating temperature. My grill temps with the other methods would often get out of control. When you’re cooking a large piece of meat, you need to keep the coals away from it to avoid drying out or burning the meat. When cooking using the “Snake”, I would have to move the meat around, losing heat, time, and juices each time.
    I bought the SNS 2.0, followed the directions exactly, and crushed the cook! My guests told me my brisket was better than the famous BBQ restaurant in St. Louis. I don’t know about all that, but it was pretty darn good.
    The device fits my kettle perfectly. The build quality is SOLID. The directions are easy to follow. As an engineer, I give much respect. As a BBQ aficionado, I have nothing but love for your company.

    Does not perform as well on 26

    Brian (verified owner)

    Wish I would have pulled trigger on the XL before it was discontinued. The 2.0 works but when you need to do a long cook on 26 inch water reservoir runs out and it can not hold enough coals. Last few long cooks i pulled the reservoir and used a metal long narrow sheetrock mud pan. It worked much better. Basically this is a glorified charcoal basket. It is well made and heavy duty. It will last forever. Overall it is nice to have but not necessary to achieve steady temperatures and direct and indirect zones. You can rig different things up with bricks and weber charcoal baskets. This just makes it alittle easier.Nice but not the game changer it is billed as.

    Slow 'n Sear 2.0

    Douglas Mueller

    I ordered 2 of these for Christmas. One for myself and one for a friend who is also an avid griller. I’ve only had a chance to use mine twice so far. The first was a tri-tip and the second was a beautiful Prime Rib which I cooked for New Year’s Eve. I followed the ABC instructions on their video along with the rub they recommended. What I can say is this; It was without a doubt the best prime rib I had ever had. My wife and 4 guests would also agree. I would give this product an “Awesome” rating!

    Excellent Product

    Dave C. (verified owner)

    Well made. Fast Shipping. Gave it as a gift, so I haven’t used it, but I want one now. Maybe I should get one as a return gift. It came with a charcoal tongs as a purchase bonus, which I thought I would keep for myself. But, it too was well-made and hod “Slow n Sear” branded into the handle, so I included it with the gift.

    Essentil for Steak

    Grits Burgh

    If you grill steaks, you simply must have one of these. Using the sous vide method and a Slow ‘N Sear you can now prepare world class steaks in your back yard. The Slow ‘N Sear is an absolutely essential tool. If you have a Weber charcoal grill, then you must have a Slow ‘N Sear or you are missing out on the possibilities.

    Unreal Results

    Ned Doan

    I have done St Louis and Baby Back Ribs on the 2.0 over the last couple of weeks. The results were fabulous! I rubbed a small amount of salt on the ribs the night before and the actual rub just before cooking. Temperature stayed between 225 and 250 for the entire cooking time. I did not have to add charcoal! Highly recommend the Slow “N Sear. It made my Weber into a real BBQ Machine!

    Sue Molitor

    The SnS is fantastic I’ve been cooking on the Weber for 54 years . Now I no longer have to add coals every hour for a long cook . Just did St Louis ribs last night. Cooked for 6 hours and still had coals left to go at least another hour. The SnS is awesome

    Good Company and Good Product

    Scott

    A small SNAFU with my order of the SnS / Drip & Griddle combo pack, but ABC quickly responded and corrected the issue. Mistakes happen – their quick reconciliation shows they care about their customers! As for the SnS, it works great. I was having trouble holding consistent temperatures when I set up the Weber kettle for indirect/smoking via the “water in aluminum pan, indirect charcoal pile” method. First attempt with this product, I followed the directions that come with the SnS basket, and was able to hold temps right at 290-310 for 4-5 hours through minimal vent adjustments. Our kettles will never be “true” smokers, but the SnS is probably the closest we’ll get. Great product for a beginner!

    Just Buy It!!

    Kevin OBrien (verified owner)

    I have used my Weber 22 since 2005. Indirect cooking mostly and direct for steaks and burgers. Once I read about the SnS, used a Weber basket on one side with foil to simulate the SnS setup. Until I bought the SnS 2.0 I had no idea how poorly my makeshift setup worked. This has been a real pleasure to use. Steaks and burgers are now indirect and reverse seared with great results. Thick pork chops and chicken are great. Using 8 lit coals and a chimney of unlit to cook a chuck roast was my latest cook and the SnS 2.0 stayed lit and powered though the stall and I did not have to wrap; great bark and my wife really liked it! I am a skeptic by nature – this is worth it! Just buy it and step up your game! Dave’s commitment to this product and service are outstanding as well.

    Now my Weber is complete

    Travis Reed (verified owner)

    Now my Weber kettle grill Performer is complete. I purchased the SnS to smoke food on the Weber kettle grill. After smoking my first rack of bibs I was hooked. I have never smoked a piece of meat in my life and the SnS make it painless and oh so tasty. I followed the instructions on the abcbarbecue.com web site and they were the best ribs ever. I smoked the ribs for 6 hours and the kettle held a temperature between 220° and 230° once I adjusted the top and bottom vents. After 6 hours at 225° I still had a little under ¼ to of the coals left, I could have easily gone 8 hours. This think is Awesome!!!

    Perfect to step up charcoal barbecue!

    Jeramy Simonian (verified owner)

    I’ve been using the Slow ‘N Sear for over a year now and it rarely leaves my grill. It has increased my confidence in backyard charcoal cooking from only doing steaks and burgers and simple chicken, to making excellent ribs, brisket, pork butts/shoulders, chuck roasts, spatchcock chickens, etc.! When the 2.0 version was announced I had to grab it for my second kettle. I like the removable water trough and updated bottom cut-out design – seems to reduce ash build up on long cooks! I am very impressed with the build quality of both versions. I often recommend these products to any of my barbecue friends and family. Along with the Slow ‘N Sear, I also have the Drip ‘N Griddle pan and the Easy Spin Grate, they are all used often and I wouldn’t be cooking with the excellent results that I have been without them!

    This thing is awesome! I liked cooking on my Weber till I had this SnS. Now I love cooking on my Weber. This allows you too smoke brisket, ribs, pork, etc with minimal babysitting. Once you have it dialed it you are gold to go. The SnS also makes for cooking wings, burgers, and steaks a breeze. Couldn’t be happier with the product.

    Simply elegant searing solution

    Thom Pantazi

    As a disappointed new owner of a Weber grill I was most frustrated with the lack of intensity to the heat generated for searing. Once I opened the box I was pleasantly surprised to see a very nicely designed piece of metalwork that was both simple and effective. However until I used it I couldn’t appreciate the terrific way it focuses the heat generated by my charcoal.

    My only complaint is I couldn’t appreciate the benefits of the Two Zone grill with easy spin. Now I can see why it is so valuable.
