The ideal accessory for your charcoal grill!  Add versatility to your cooking styles by bringing competition-winning, low ‘n slow barbecue to your backyard.  The Slow ‘N Sear will help you “lock-in” your desired temperature for amazing brisket, pork shoulder, ribs, etc.  The graph below shows results you can easily achieve with the Slow ‘N Sear: 6+ hours rock-steady between 225-235 F.

Fire up the coals for high heat (350 – 400 F) on the indirect side for perfect chicken cooks or your favorite dessert (cookies, anyone?).   Or sear directly over the coals for a quick-cook steak or a finishing crisp on any meat.

The thermal image above shows the discrete two-zone cooking environment created by the Slow ‘N Sear.  On the indirect side, note how the temperature is uniform across the entire cooking surface regardless how close it is to the coals.  Both the temperature at grate-level and that of the food is even across the grill half-way through this chicken cook.

  1. 5 out of 5 Is it worth it?

    JR McLaughlin

    I am new to the outdoor cooking scene. I am very handy in a kitchen, but have a lot to learn outside, on open flame, charcoal and such. I have a Weber that I had spent 6 months learning to cook with. I would never have spent more than $10 bucks for another cooking “tool”, much less over a hundred. I needed to learn the very basic things like burgers, chicken and steak. All with charcoal and using things like foil, water pans, heat shielding, and the “snake” method. I became pretty confident with my ability. Then I bought this SNS. It is a total game changer. With the SNS and a willingness to follow easy instructions. I am able to do ribs, pork butt, pork belly, chuck roast and even a standing rib roast. Things I would never consider trying. The key to all of it is controlling the temperature. Usually I use the SNS set up for slow cooking at +/-250 or use it to hold the coals hotter at +/-325. Now after about 1 year of cooking 2-3 times a week on a grill, I can tell you one thing. Temperature control is everything. And the SNS is an incredibly easy way to control temperature. On the first day I did a test run, I had it run for 4 hours at 300 over the coals, 240 over the cooking area. Never opened the lid, never added a thing, never even put meat on it that day, air vent adjustment at 2 hours. That is all you need to know. Is it worth it? Yes. Absolutely worth every penny. Get the Slow N Sear and a thermometer and call it good. You can figure out the rest as you go. But make life easier and stop foolin’ with the temps.

    I couldn’t be more pleased with my purchase. I called ABC directly and ordered over the phone, glad I did…I had a lot of questions answered and had a very pleasant chat with the sales staff. I will be a repeat customer for sure! Great company and a superb product line!

  3. 5 out of 5 INDESPENSABLE WEBER KETTLE ACCESSORY!

    CTWsr50

    I’m 67 years old. I grew up in a family of 8 (2nd oldest of 6 kids). All of us kids had a job. I oversaw “the grill” and grilling since I was 9 years old. 2 weeks ago, using the “Slow and Sear” and the “Easy Spin Grate”, along with Dave’s Parrish’s Adrenaline Barbecue technique, I prepared the best New York Strip I’ve ever grilled, -EVER!

    Dean Ashley

    Thoroughly enjoy using the SNS. For me it takes the guesswork out of maintaining a consistent cooking temp. I keep it in the grill all the time. Also grateful that I can email the company and ask questions that are probably remedial in scope and they are patient and respond promptly and have saved me from having to go to Mc Donald’s.

  5. 5 out of 5 Game Changer

    Vacoast

    The SNS really is the best upgrade to the Weber Kettle. I got mine after reading about it on amazingribs.com website. I decided to pull the trigger and got the one without the grated bottom. It does take a few cooks to learn how to light it and vent it. I’ve smoked a pork butt, chicken, ribs and meatloaf so far with awesome results. Just trust and follow the instructions that come with it and you’ll be the pit master in no time. Two guys from work just ordered theirs. I’m hoping for some BBQ leftovers soon.
    This really is worth the $$$. It’s very well made and durable.

  8. 4 out of 5 Wow is it slow.....

    Chad from Canada

    the slow and sear is exactly as it is described here. I was able to hold a low and slow cook for easily 5+ hours. I have only used the slow and sear twice this year as I live in Canada so i haven’t bee BBQ a lot this year. Anyway, I am making the mistake of adding too much wood to the charcoal, but it is a learning experience. Oh well, guess i will try again this weekend……The videos found here have been a great help.

  9. 5 out of 5 Takes a Little Getting Used To It

    FRANK M

    Overall I’m pleased with it. The heat from the coals is concentrated and intense so when cooking direct you have to pay close attention or you can incinerate your steaks. Thus, reverse sear is almost mandatory for a 1 1/2 ” thick steak. What I love about the Slow n’ Sear is when finishing an uneven cut like a Tri-Tip you can hang the thin end off away from the coals to achieve a beautifully even pink end to end. Smoking ribs in conjunction with the Drip ,n Gridle produces an outstanding finished product. Heat and smoke is directed up and over the ribs so you don’t have the problem of one side drying out while the opposite side does nothing. The built in water trough is genius. The Drip ‘n Gridle lined with foil makes cleanup after a messy cook a snap.I recommend buying both pieces together for maximum benefit and utility.

      I forgot to mention that prior to using the combo pack, I used the original Smokettle® for many pork shoulders. While that accessory served me well in the Weber, the Slow ‘N Sear is far superior. Jim

    Jerry Kirch

    My girlfriend bought me this for Xmas because I couldn’t stop watching You-Tube videos about it. This thing really delivers and a must have if you don’t own a smoker, It’s built very solid and keeps a even temperature for a long cook. I would highly recommend this product for your Weber kettle grill.

    5 out of 5 Best Kettle Accessory PERIOD!

    Chad

    Why do I give this 5 stars?

    – Ease of use
    – Simplicity
    – Temp Stabilization
    – True 2 zone cooking
    – Increased Space (compared to other “Methods” during Low n Slow cooks)
    – Fuel efficiency
    – Kettle protection
    – Built in water pan
    – Quality materials
    – Quality manufacturing
    – Amazing Sear capabilities

    When I first heard about the SnS, I figured it was an expensive unnecessary add on. However, the more I researched, the more reviews I read/watched the more interested I became.
    Finally after getting swayed by everything I read, I decided to buy one. I was already a member of the FB group, watched everything about it on YouTube and NEVER heard one person say anything bad about it. So I decided to pick one up and just be done with my curiosity once and for all. However, after all my research my wife knew I wanted one but kept giving me excuses as to why I couldn’t order one “yet”. Welp, it was because she had bought me one for my Birthday.
    I had talked so much about it, she knew that was what I wanted. After getting it, I wasn’t disappointed! The build quality was solid and it was of solid materials! It will last many years to come! The craftsmanship is of the highest quality.

    Setup is completely easy for any type of cook and the thing never leaves my grill! It is worth every Penny! I recommend them to everyone I know who has a Kettle, and sometimes to those who don’t but tell them they can pick up a cheap used Weber or a new base 22 for around $100.
    Best Grill/Smoker combination for the $$$ in my opinion!
    Food Results speak for themselves, friends who have expensive BGE and other expensive Kamado’s tell me my food cooked with the use of the SnS Is far superior to anything they’ve ever had or made on their grills!

    If you are on the fence, pick one up, you won’t be disappointed!

  14. 5 out of 5 Success!

    R2rr

    I have had nothing but success since purchasing the S-n-S.
    First was ribs, and I would have put them in the top tier of any contest (I have done a good bit of judging before).
    As long as you get the temperature right and learn to keep it there (learn your kettle), this will amaze you with perfect slow smoking anything!
    Truly worth every penny.

    Anthony Foster

    The SnS makes grilling and smoking a breeze. It is easy to set up, and once it is up to temperature, it maintains the temperature with little to no adjusting the vents for hours.

    When grilling ribeyes, I reverse seared them. With the SnS filled to the brim with lit briquettes, it gave my steaks an incredibly hot sear.

    Chicken drumsticks come out great. Ribs and brisket too.

    Get a SnS immediately if you have a weber kettle.

  17. 5 out of 5 Best improvement you can make to your Weber kettle!

    Jim Morris

    This Slow ‘N Sear is probably the single best accessory you can purchase for any Weber kettle, and turns it into a smoking machine! With it, 2-zone indirect smoking becomes super simple and enjoyable, and repeatable. If you follow the instructions provided on the Adrenaline BBQ website, lighting and setting up a fire for a 225F or 325F smoke, and running all day long on a single chimney of charcoal, becomes a reality. In only a few short months, I’ve probably smoked 100 or more pounds of meat using the SnS, and that does not even include the searing possibilities that the SnS opens up! Want to get a great crust on a reverse seared steak? Nothing to it – cook indirect using the SnS until it nears your desired temperature, then open all the vents, and remove the lid, and the SnS becomes an inferno of red hot coals for a great sear!

    Buy one today – you won’t regret it!

Indirect then to direct mostly but it also works great in conjunction with the Weber rotisserie (spinning a chicken out there as I type. I love this thing. Oh, and low’n slow for ribs. Oh yeah. Get’s dialed in and goes for hours at low ‘n slow temps. Yep.

  19. 5 out of 5 Great product that takes a lot of hassle out of slow cooking.

    Ryan P

    Ive done two cooks with my SnS and I absolutely love it. I’ve done a 10 hour brisket and a 12 hour double pork butt. Before I had my SnS I had to tend to the constantly fluctuating grill temperature. Now I have to make vent adjustments maybe once every 5 hours. It makes the entire cook go smoother and the food comes out higher quality. I love my slow n sear!

  20. 4 out of 5 Almost perfect

    Zoran Trconic

    Works as advertised, and I have no regrets with my purchase, but…. the inner wall on the water reservoir warped like others I’ve seen on YouTube. It doesn’t affect functionality, just aesthetics, they should maybe update the design with a slightly thicker panel, or add a horizontal truss for added support.

    The Slownsear is a God send. It’s almost foolproof. It almost gave me the courage to enter into a competition, then I came back down to earth and decided to stay cooking in my backyard for my friends and family. Since buying the SNS, I’ve been expanding what I cook and everything had been turning out great. It gave me the courage to try my first Brisket and it turned out really really good, and ribs are waaaaaay easier to cook and now I feel like I actually know what I’m doing.

    Doug

    Bought this for low and slow cooking. I am able to get the temperature to 275 and keep it there for hours. Temperature staid within +/-20 degrees for over 4 hours.

    Added a few wood chips and made sure the lid vent was opposite the fire. Great smoke flavor.

    Also used it for reverse sear. Cooked a steak to rare. Finished it to medium rare about 2 minutes a side on the hot side and came out great!

    Brett

    I had been going back and forth between additions for my Weber 22 inch kettle when I ran across this product. Read tons of reviews and did my due diligence so to speak. I had wanted to smoke more stuff but my Old Country Smoker was a bit cumbersome for the smaller cooks. This thing works. I even let my friend use it once because he wanted to know how I did it lol. He bought one not long thereafter. Best feature(s) is the ability to use one chimney of charcoal for hours long cooking and temperature control. Get this, you won’t be disappointed and if you are well most bad results are operator error 🙂

    Brian

    The Slow n Sear looks to be very well made and will surely last a lifetime….probably several life times. I bought it to make is easier to properly sear my steaks and chops, and replaced the flimsy tin fuel baskets that came with the Weber.

    The Slow and Sear makes it easy to do a proper two zone fire. My grilling technique has never been better. As I type this, I have just lit a full chimney, and will be reverse searing some beef tenderloins for my wife and I.

  37. 4 out of 5 I agree 100% with Richard L – September 13, 2017

    Terry S. Texas

    The only comment I would add is that I had an occasion to contact the company and their response was exceptional. As soon as I can justify it, I’ll be upgrading to the XL version. Worth the additional features and direct grilling size.

    Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

  38. 5 out of 5 Go for it--worth the $$ (think about the XL, though)

    Richard L

    This accessory helps add consistency to the inconsistent process of grilling with charcoal/briquettes, second only to a thermometer. This thing is heavy–the metal is a very thick gauge, the welds are solid and it stands flat out of the box. It fits nicely just under the grill brackets, which will hold the Slow N Sear (if you position it under two of the brackets) so it won’t tip over when you fill it with water.

    If the Slow N Sear is short of perfection, it is only that:

    (1) the water reservoir can be hard to clean. It would be super handy if the included or sold a metal pipe brush for that narrow space. But I can deal.

    (2) It does not solve all of my charcoal problems–mainly, small pieces still fall through the grate. Of course, I gave this one 5 stars because I deliberately chose it instead of the XL to save a little money, and because I didn’t want the extra metal to inhibit airflow from below.

    The XL is an available option, so I don’t fault the product at all on this point. The XL model fully addresses this criticism, and it’s nice to have the choice, so you can decide whether to be a cheapskate like I was. In the end, I doubt whether the bottom of the XL would inhibit airflow noticeably, so I suggest the XL is worth the little bit extra.

    Focusing on the product itself, it accomplishes what it is designed to do extremely well.

    There are two cosmetic issues:

    (1) The metal for the water reservoir warping, which happens after several uses. I suspect this straight piece bows because the it expands in the heat, but, being inside (and constrained) by the sides of the pan, it has nowhere to expand but outward. I could envision solving this problem by replacing the welds at the end of the water reservoir with a tongue-and-slot design, which would allow the straight pieces to expand, but that would just be trading the warpage for flimsiness. The makers opted to live with a little warping in order to have solid welds and a solid piece, and it seems like a choice.

    (2) It gets dirty all the time (because I use it all the time).

    As with any grilling, it takes a couple of tries to get it right. I got lucky and my first time out everything worked fantastically. The next couple of times things went OK but needed more adjustment to get used to it (I was running hot, but also trying different charcoal), but I haven’t had a bad grill since.

    Don’t give it a second thought. Get this sucker and get out and grill some more.

  39. 5 out of 5 The Best

    hpd1

    Super product. Best thing ever for a Weber grill. I cooked a six pound chunk of pork once with out one and WOW
    what a difference. I even overcooked my last pork roast ( I know, I know), and was still moist and fork tender. Best money I’ve ever spent on a cooking device of any kind. I want another Weber just so I can use another Slow and Sear.

  40. 5 out of 5 Slow N Sear - quit drooling and just get it already!

    Rich

    I love this gizmo! I’ve spent many hours over many years tending to my Weber grills;steaks and ribs mainly. But now with my SnS I can cook the larger cuts nice and slow to perfection, and I do mean perfection! So far pork back ribs, chuck roast, and pork butts, every one came out nice and tasty and (check the photo) so juicy! Currently dry brining a 6.5lb butt in the fridge to bbq all day Friday. You can’t go wrong with this thing, just follow the directions. I have been using a mix of Kingsford blue bag original and the competition briquettes for fuel and that works real good for me for both temperature control and a clean even burn. I believe this is the best add-on you will ever buy for your bbq.

  41. 5 out of 5 As good as WSMs and a whole lot easier

    Brad

    I have the Slow and Sear and the drip pan. I also have an 18 and 22 inch Weber Smoky Mountain as wells as a Hasty Bake. Since getting the Slow and Sear I now only use the WSMs when I have a huge BBQs. The results I get from the Slow n Sear are as good as what I get using the WSMs plus using the Slow n Sear is a lot simpler and easy.

  42. 5 out of 5 Works great

    Stan Timperley

    Works great. Every time I have used it is been on a slow and sear, indirect cooking application. It has always given me even temperature on the indirect side. If there was one thing I would change about my purchase, it is that I should have bought that the next size up. On a three hour cook I have had to add charcoal to keep it at 250 to 275. But other than that it is a great product. Congratulations.

  44. 5 out of 5 very good so far

    Richard

    I’ve only used the slow ‘n sear for smoking so far, so I can’t comment on how well it works for steaks or burgers, but it was great for a pork butt and ribs. I would suggest to newbies like myself that it is best not to try to mix in any slightly used charcoal; this bit of economizing interfered with keeping everything well lit over several hours. My fire never went out (I was monitoring it remotely) but it added unnecessary fiddling. Live and learn.

    With all new briquettes temperatures were very stable for hours on end.

  45. 5 out of 5 Great addition to a Weber Kettle

    Brian Hardy

    I was directed here after reading rave reviews from AmazingRibs.com, and I have not been disappointed at all. The Slow “n Sear works exactly as advertised. The first few times I used it, it took a bit of time figuring out how to position my dampers, but once I did, the grill stayed exactly at 228 for hours. (I was shooting for 225, but I figure a 3 degree variance is probably within acceptable limits).
    The Slow ‘N Sear is well built and solid, so I’ve no concerns that it’s going to put up to the years of use I’m going to put it through. Even if you’re not using it to smoke/slow cook, it does a great job with steaks, tri tip, just about anything. I’m very happy with this thing.

  46. 3 out of 5 Metal bent in after searing steaks

    Mike

    I’m sure I’m just in the rare differing opinion, but the slot that holds water completely bent in concave after searing up some steaks the first time. So now its almost touching the second wall at the mid-point. Does this affect performance? Not really, although the water is pushed out to the sides now, and I do some rearranging for smoking meat. other that that, its cool I guess…just thought it would be super solid steel with all the positive reviews I read beforehand. Oh well, them’s the breaks.

    • David

      Mike it is completely normal for some bending to occur when the Slow ‘N Sear is exposed to high heat. The high quality stainless steel we use can handle the punishment where other inferior metals would have long melted or rusted through. By its very nature the stainless steel will expand a bit, and because the inner wall of the reservoir is much, much hotter than the outer wall, that expansion is a little lopsided. Over time the bending you mentioned will be much reduced and it should never affect our product claims of 8+ hours low and slow cook time with your charcoal or 5+ hours of steam when smoking at 225 F. If you still have concerns please reach out. We’ll help! Dave

    Ed Gorenz

    This chunk of well made stainless steel is fabulous. The Slow ‘n Sear coupled with a good thermometer (I use a Smoke by Thermoworks) is game changing. I was a run of the mill grill cook before I purchased the Slow ‘n Sear but now my family and friends clamor when I fire up my Weber. My grilled food has never tasted better…..period.

    David

    The slow-n-sear works exactly as advertised. It makes kettle cooking so much easier. It is a very friendly device. The Facebook group….not so much.

    Buy the product…..enjoy the product….just don’t go to the slow-n-sear group page for help and advice. Learn the grilling, smoking, BBQing skills somewhere else and let the SNS be your ace-in-the-hole to succeed.

  53. 5 out of 5 It DOES perfect the kettle grill!!!

    Roebuck

    I purchased my in June 2017, and i love it. I live in a small town, with little access to good bbq, without a 2hr drive. I have never smoked meat before, only basic grilling on my 22″ webber. I decided to learn how to smoke my own food. The slow n’ sear, with the Maverick ET-732 thermometer, allows me to enjoy the delicious smoked goods at own home. I have had several friends and recieved lots of positive feedback. Worth the money.

  55. 5 out of 5 Outstanding Kettle Tool

    John Smithson

    I read reviews on this device on line in one of the well known BBQ blogs. All the reviews I read were positive so I pulled the trigger on one and it ends up it is one of the best investments I ever made for outdoor cooking. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical at paying the price for the Slow and Sear but it is worth, in my opinion, every penny. It is very well constructed of high grade stainless steel with impressive weldments. All the claims made by the company in regard to this product are absolutely valid. The device comes with an instruction manual that is spot on. If you follow the simple step by step procedures you will have a perfect cook every time. Today I did a St. Louis rack of ribs in 4.5 hours and they were delicious! I have never had ribs that good cooked on my kettle grill ever. The kettle held the temp at 225-235 degrees for the entire period of the cook and had maybe a good hour of fuel left. The slow and sear should be in every kettle grill of every serious outdoor cook.

      The top vents were about half way open and the bottom vents were nearly all the way open. I used about 75 briquettes for the entire cook and never had to add more. Recently I cooked a 6lb Boston Butt for 12 hours and only had to add a handful of charcoal to complete the cook.

  57. 5 out of 5 Kettle Perfection

    Rick

    Kettle perfectionOrdered my Slow n Sear on the Saturday of the Easter weekend and Catherine shipped it the same day. I received it in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada Yesterday afternoon and smoked a pork Butt that was ready for a midnight snack! Can’t say enough about the product and the service! We are having a very late spring in this area and I grilled in 30 degree outside temp. The Slow n Sear maintained a perfect 225 – 250 for about six hours when the temp seemed to drop a little. Since it was so cold outside and being a first timer, I got nervous and added more coals. Probably a few too many since my grill temp went to 325 and I had trouble keeping it down. I know I should have done a dry run without meat but my little pork shoulder was only four bucks so guinea-pigged it (so to speak). All in all the SNS performed extremely well in very cold grilling conditions and I’m sure that when it finally warms up here and I have a little more experience it is going to be a fabulous tool for my kettle. I highly recommend it and the Adrenaline folks!

  58. 4 out of 5 Excellent accessory for your Weber Kettle

    Tim Morley

    I’ve owned this since Nov 2016 and done numerous cooks with it. It makes indirect/2-zone cooking a breeze on a Weber Kettle and provides easy flexibility if you want to run your cook with water. Searing burgers and steaks is a breeze. I honestly believe I’ve produced some of the best steaks I’ve ever made using a reverse sear which the SnS makes very easy. If you want to improve your end products on the grill this is a must have accessory. The only reason I rated it 4 stars vs 5 is that I recently upgraded to the Plus and I love the added ventilated base plate on the Plus.

This thing does it all. You def know about my man LeBron – he’s EFFICIENT. This Slow n Sear is like LeBron’s big brother – efficient AF!! One reservoir full of coals will last you for like 8 hours lol how does it even do it?! That is just wild bro. This is some crazy good science put into this thing – Bill Nye prob cries at night he didn’t come up with this. I have cranked out some OG BBQ with this thing fam – my IG blowin up. Man I didn’t even mention how this thing gets hot as hell for when u tryina sear up a big ol fatty ribeye. Dang, this thing makes beautiful music – you best need to get it pretty quick so you can show your nosey ol neighbor homie that steals all ur stuff why he ain’t nothin.

  60. 5 out of 5 SnS

    Bryan

    I was told about the SnS by a friend. My wife caught wind and got me one for Father’s day last year. It’s the single best kettle tool a person can get for their kettle. The pictures doubt do justice as to how heavy duty they are. I have no doubt the SnS will outlast the kettle itself. Thank you A.B.C. for an American made solid piece of equipment.

  61. 5 out of 5 Bringing good BBQ to San Francisco

    Scott Hollister

    After a recent trip to Texas, the BBQ out here in San Francisco isn’t cutting it. I needed to bring that Texas flavor out here. There is a big problem though, SF is cramped! I can’t fit these giant smokers in my little backyard. I came across the Slow N Sear after viewing recipe on amazongribs.com. it was perfect. Now I have people coming from all over the bay area to attend my Cook outs.I highly recommend this to anyone just starting to smoke, or need a travel smoker, or even if you don’t want to spend the money on a big smoker.

  62. 5 out of 5 Easy Kettle Low 'n' Slow

    Steve Liguori

    Love the Slow ‘N Sear! Before buying one, I was using a brick wrapped in foil when smoking on my 22.5″ kettle. While that worked somewhat, it cut into my surface space and had inconsistent burns. With the Slow ‘N Sear, the efficiency of my kettle drastically improved and 6-, 7- and 8-hour burn times for brisket and corned beef are routine. I would highly recommend it for both low ‘n’ slow and reverse sear on steaks and chops. Great product and great service!

  63. 5 out of 5 Amazing

    Stephen

    The Slow N’ Sear is a heavy gauge steel and very solid. I have the feeling it’s going to last for ever. This thing really makes smoking meat easy. Temps stay at a constant once dialed in and the water pan keeps the humidity up for a few hours allowing the smoke to really penetrate the meat. But lets not forget the sear either. It is perfect for reverse sear and dual zone cooking. This thing can put out some heat sear steaks to perfection. Best thing you can buy for your kettle hands down.

  64. 5 out of 5 What an investment

    David C

    I was hesitant on spending almost as much as my Weber cost me on an accessory. But it gave me the ability to operate the kettle at a home higher level. As a newbie to the kettle it aided in temperature control and allowed me to start low and slow cooking. So it actually ended up saving me money by avoiding spending money on a dedicated smoker. Also made me a hero to my kids after they tasted ribs and pulled pork that I made. That is priceless and a great return on investment.

    The Slow ‘N Sear absolutely changed my BBQ life. What were once “ok” ribs, chicken, beef is now always outstanding! While I may not be up to par with Meathead Goldwyn, at least in my wife’s eyes, I’m now King of the BBQ. 🙂 What a wonderful, simple, practical product. Hats off to the geniuses at Adrenaline!

  66. 5 out of 5 Finally Using My Weber

    Jonathan DeVore

    I’m finally using my charcoal grill.

    Three years ago, I bought a Weber kettle because I wanted to cook with charcoal (others convinced me that charcoal was superior to gas). After 6 months of regular usage, my frequency of using the grill dropped to 0. Charcoal seemed like a lot of work only to spend 12 minutes cooking burgers for dinner.

    (Actually, it always seemed to take longer than 12 minutes to cook them. We always had trouble managing the temperature. That was annoying.)

    And then the smell of smoked meats began to catch my attention. My neighbors smoked ribs, pork, ham, etc. and I decided that maybe I’d rather have a smoker because the flavor (and aroma) was just so good.

    So here I was in this predicament. Do I abandon charcoal for gas? Do I drop grilling to buy a full on smoker?

    I was torn. I consulted with my wife who was against buying a replacement because chances were that I would stop using it, too. She didn’t want to drop another $300 or so on another cooking contraption.

    And then a friend told me about the Slow N’ Sear, and that I could get great smoking done using the simple Weber charcoal grill AND also do great grilling. I almost didn’t believe him at first because I thought I needed a fancy grill. But I figured it was worth a shot since it would save me from buying a new smoker/grill.

    So far I’ve smoked 4 pork butts, 1 turkey, 4 corned beef (to make pastrami), and grilled several steaks and burgers. All of them tasted better than what we get at local restaurants.

    Since I’m new to smoking, the idea of using charcoal made me nervous. The Slow N’ Sear gave me confidence to try it out since it’s kind of self working (with minor adjustments to the vents). And each time the results have been really good.

    I’m also grilling more with the weber because the results are really great, and the Slow N’ Sear works better than those trays I purchased when I got the Weber.

    So between smoking and grilling, I’m using the Weber more often to cook delicious meats. I’m happy, the wife is happy, and my friends who come over for dinner are happy. And everybody is always amazed that I can get a great smoke using the simple Weber grill.
