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.


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!

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!

Why a new version?2019-07-29T15:38:01+00:00

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

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

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