What is the Slow ‘N Sear?
Slow ‘N Sear is the revolutionary charcoal kettle grill accessory designed to add versatility and ease to
your backyard barbecue. Its patented design consists of a large capacity charcoal basket combined
with an integrated water reservoir to create two distinct cooking zones. The Slow ‘N Sear allows you
to grill/smoke/roast/bake easily, and with amazing results, in your kettle.

How will the Slow ‘N Sear change the way I cook in my kettle?
• Improved temperature control - The outer, curved wall of the charcoal basket contours the kettle
and keeps coals away from the kettle wall. This creates an insulation barrier and keeps more heat
in the kettle. Additionally, the angled wall design of the basket promotes coals to burn down
evenly. The result: more efficient and consistent heat generation in the kettle with less effect from
the outside environment. Use the air vents to “dial-in” your desired temperature and watch it stay
there for hours. Many customers tell us the Slow ‘N Sear delivers the taste of charcoal with the
convenience of gas.
• Less babysitting the kettle - Consistent temperatures in the kettle means less fussing with air
vents. The large capacity basket (~100 briquettes) will provide 8+ hours of low ‘n slow cooking at
225° F before needing to refill charcoal.
• Maximize grill space – the vertical water reservoir provides both a way to provide moisture to the
cooking environment and an effective thermal barrier between the coals and the indirect cooking
surface. You’ll find cooking grate temperatures are the same across the entire indirect zone. Use
every inch of indirect grilling space in a 22” kettle to accommodate 15-18 pounds of pork shoulder
or brisket, up to 5 racks of ribs, or a 20 pound spatchcocked turkey…load up the grill and know it
will all cook evenly and consistently.
• Slow-cooked barbecue AND high-heat searing – when fully lit, the charcoal basket creates a
high-heat sear zone exceeding 1000° F. Use the two-zones in your kettle to quickly move between
direct sear and indirect cooking without needing separate grills.
Quality, made in the U.S.A.
Slow ‘N Sear products* are made from heavy gauge, high quality
stainless steel hand welded by skilled American craftsmen. It’s a

I don’t see my grill listed above. How do I know if a Slow ‘N Sear will fit?
Here are the dimensions for the Slow’ N Sear/Slow ‘N Sear Plus and Slow ‘N Sear Charcoal Basket. Compare
these specifications to your grill’s dimensions. Keep in mind that height (charcoal grate-to-food grate distance)
is just as important as length and width.

What is the difference between the Slow ‘N Sear and Slow ‘N Sear Plus?
Both units have identical cooking performance (capacity for fuel/water; cooking time; intensity of sear; steam
generation duration; etc). The ventilated stainless steel bottom plate on the Slow ‘N Sear Plus adds a level of
convenience for some of our customers in these situations:
• Using lump charcoal – the bottom plate holds onto irregular, and often smaller-sized, lump charcoal pieces
better than the charcoal grate of the kettle
• Using the center ignition on a Weber Performer – the ability of the Plus to hold coals allows for movement
of the Slow’ N Sear across the grill to access the ignition port
• Sifting ash – the bottom plate makes it easy to shake out accumulated ash during low ‘n slow cooks
without losing small charcoal embers through the charcoal grate
• Ease of clean-up – after a cook, quickly and easily sift ash then dump/retain unused coals by picking up
the Plus and giving it a shake
It seems the regular Slow ‘N Sear or Slow ‘N Sear Plus would also fit in a 26” grill.
Why do you recommend the Slow ‘N Sear XL instead?
Yes, the Slow ‘N Sear/Slow ‘N Sear Plus will work well in a 26” kettle. But it has two limitations that are
overcome by choosing the Slow ‘N Sear XL:
1. Since the 26” kettle has more space to heat, a single load of charcoal in a Slow ‘N Sear/Slow ‘N Sear Plus
won’t last as long during a low ‘n slow cook. The increased charcoal capacity of the Slow ‘N Sear XL allows
you to cook longer without needing to refill.
2. The smaller size of the Slow ‘N Sear/Slow ‘N Sear Plus means less room to sear. You get much more searing
space (without losing indirect cooking space) with the Slow ‘N Sear XL.
I have an 18” kettle/Jumbo Joe – are you going to make a Slow ‘N Sear with a
water reservoir for this grill type?
Space limitations in the 18” kettle/Jumbo Joe prevent us from being able to include a vertical water reservoir
that would be safe to fill and not take up too much indirect cooking space. We’ve incorporated a similar
double-wall barrier in the Slow ‘N Sear Charcoal Basket to create a two-zone cooking environment and it works
great! A water pan on top of the coals can provide moisture during a cook, if needed.
Why are two Slow ‘N Sear products recommended for the Weber Summit Charcoal
The Weber Summit Charcoal Grill (WSCG) has two charcoal grates:
• an upper charcoal grate close to the food grate where the Slow ‘N Sear Low Profile can be used for low ‘n
slow cooking and/or searing with direct radiant heat (searing steak, for example)
• a lower charcoal grate, further from the food grate, where the Slow ‘N Sear Charcoal Basket can be used for
low ‘n slow cooking and/or roasting with distant radiant heat (chicken - and chicken skin specifically - love
this type of high-heat distance cooking)
The Drip ‘N Griddle Pan (see Page 6) should also be considered essential for the WSCG. The Pan creates a
two-zone cooking environment when using our Charcoal Basket on the lower grate and helps to funnel cooler
intake air into the Low Profile when it’s set up on the upper charcoal grate.

A good digital thermometer
We can’t emphasize strongly enough the importance of having good
digital thermometers. At minimum you should have a dual-probe
thermometer to simultaneously monitor pit temperature (note: your
dome thermometer is not accurately measuring temperature at the grill
surface) and a leave-in probe for meat temperature. Any backyard cook
will also be well-served by an instant-read thermometer to quickly check
and confirm meat temperatures. Cooking to temperature, not time, is
critical to perfect food every time.
Just like grills, thermometers come in a range of models with various
features and at multiple price points.
Our recommendations for
thermometers can be found on our “Thermometers” Shop page. There
you’ll find links and descriptions for our favorite ThermoWorks products
as well as direct sales of two Maverick products including our custom
dual-probe thermometer package (based on the popular ET-732).
Drip ‘N Griddle Pan
As the name implies, this pan made by Adrenaline Barbecue Company
can be used as both a drip pan and a flat-top griddle.
Drip pan – when used as a drip pan, the Drip ‘N Griddle Pan is placed on
the charcoal grate below the indirect cooking zone of the food grate. It
provides coverage to catch drippings from the biggest cooks, has raised
edges to accommodate the messiest cooks, and has convenient handles
for easy removal. An added benefit to using the Drip ‘N Griddle Pan
is that it efficiently directs air to the Slow ‘N Sear providing increased
responsiveness to vent adjustments.

Griddle – Place the Drip ‘N Griddle Pan on the food grate above the
sear zone of the Slow ‘N Sear for an instant griddle surface on your grill.
Perfect for burgers, shellfish, bacon and eggs, veggies and more, the Drip
‘N Griddle Pan is a versatile tool for your outside cooking arsenal.
The Drip ‘N Griddle Pan is one size that works great in 22” & 26” grills.
Custom-fit GrillGrates for the Slow ‘N Sear
GrillGrates are another multi-function tool for your charcoal grill. This
GrillGrate set sold by Adrenaline Barbecue Company is specifically cut to
contour the sear zone of the Slow ‘N Sear maximizing sear space.
They can be used:
1) Rails up over the sear zone for searing
2) Rails down over the sear zone for a flat grilling surface perfect for
3) Over the sear zone of the Slow ‘N Sear during a low ‘n slow cook to
prevent temperature spikes from increased airflow when raising the lid.
Custom-fit GrillGrates come in one size and work great in 22” and 26”
