The Slow ‘N Sear Plus is a revolutionary new kettle grill accessory allowing you to maximize cooking styles on your kettle grill while making it simple and easy to use.  Its patented design allows you to cook at low ‘n slow temperatures (225 F),  high-heat sear (1000+ F), or anything in between effortlessly – and all with the same device.  There’s no need to buy a dedicated smoker – you can have it all with the Slow ‘N Sear!

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 integrated 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 at low ‘n slow temperatures providing moisture for smoke adherence and a humid environment that keeps temperatures stable.

    Great for 2 zone cooking - smoking...???


    I love the 2 zone cooking that is shorter in duration. The long cooks required of smoking 10 lb pork butts is another matter. I have used a couple different brands of briquets, including Weber but the small squares at the bottom clog and restricts airflow. This becomes a very high maintenance affair with wide temp fluctuations. Kind of wish I’d not gotten the ‘plus’. I think the wide open base would improve performance. Will try lump charcoal next I guess. Or, cut some golf ball sized ‘vents’ on the bottom of the SNS Plus. Love the concept. Not prepared to give up.

      I was just about to write the same comment as Cy. I too wonder if the basic isn’t better for the long burn I’ve only used it twice however ash build up has been a problem/concern and I have tried to best align with the lower charcoal grate. I will give it a shake or 2 next time before I open up the holes..

    Wish I would have gotten the standard

    David Mitchell

    Works fantastic for holding low and slow and searing, but searing area is small. Too good
    Sizes ribeyes will choke off airflow. I wish I would not have gotten the “plus”. The built in grates are easy to get cross crossed with the Weber cooking grate and just about cut off airflow, which caused an issue cooking a turkey I couldn’t get up to temp. I don’t use lump and don’t reuse much coal, so I would probably have been happier with the slow and sear without a bottom. Fantastic product- one star without for grates being too restrictive in the plus.

    Great Smoker Accessory for Weber Grill


    I have a weber kettle and love it, but I was looking for something that would allow us to do some elementary smoking. I came across the Slow N Sear on (and after pouring through their Meatheads book). They highly recommended the accessory highly, calling it the “The Single Best Accessory For The Weber Kettle Ever”. The Slow N Sear is PERFECT for 2 zone cooking and makes it easy to position the charcoal. We’ve gotten the GrillGrates since then and plan on getting the Drip ’N Griddle Pan as well. The only thing I would add is that the Slow N Sear has gotten slightly warped from the heat after only a few uses. I expected this over time, but I’ll be curious to see how long it holds up.

      Does the twist from warping cause less water volume capability? or any spillage? Does the twist prevent the charcoal basket from sitting flat? Good to know, thanks for the info.

      This is actually really good to know! My original model has warped too and I was initially worried (it happened after a cook or two) but I thought I noticed the ones in some of the how to videos also had the same warp, so I didn’t worry. Seeing this is handy. Thanks!

      Thank you for your review! The slight warping of your reservoir is normal and a by-product of the very high quality 304 stainless steel metal we use to make the Slow ‘N Sear. 304 SS is very durable, corrosion resistant, and has a super high melting point of 2500 F. These are all good qualities in a charcoal basket/water reservoir. The downside of 304 SS is that it has a slightly higher coefficient of expansion than cheaper metals like carbon steel as well as cheaper types of stainless steel. Because the inner wall of the water reservoir gets much hotter than the outer wall, especially when searing, some warping can occur during hot cooks. The inner wall expands more then the outer wall due to the different temperatures each wall reaches during the cook. The shape should return to normal once it cools down, though in many cases a small amount of warping remains. This is normal and we baked this into our product claims of 5 hours of steam and 8+ hours of low and slow cooking. Your Slow ‘n Sear weathers this warping quite well and will last you many many years.

    Excellent to sear, still learning to smoke

    Kristof Jozsa

    Bought the SNS Plus for my Weber Master Touch for the ability to smoke over lump instead of smoking using the snake method with briqs. I’m still experimenting with the kit but I’m capable of lighting it and tuning to 220F in about 10 minutes from start – it still requires quite some baby sitting during the cook though.

    What’s exceptional though is how this device helps grilling, defining a clear, totally separated indirect zone and reaching extreme high temps over the direct zone, like turning the built-in temp meter over 700F with half a chimney of lit lump. I don’t see myself ever grilling in the kettle without the SNS Plus!
