Slow ’N Sear®- How it Works | SnS Grills

Charcoal basket:

  • Curved to contour the kettle for maximum charcoal capacity. It holds more than twice as much fuel as a standard charcoal basket!
  • The space between the outer wall of the basket and the kettle wall creates an effective insulation barrier keeping heat inside the grill rather than heating up the air outside the kettle. This means more efficient charcoal burn at low ‘n slow temps (225° – 250° F) providing 8-10 hours of cooking on one basket load of fuel, which is about what fits in a standard sized charcoal chimney. For more information on how to set it up, go to our Lighting Instructions. 
  • Whatever fuel source you prefer – charcoal briquettes or lump charcoal, the Slow ‘N Sear creates an insulated environment that allows that fuel to burn much more efficiently. Our customers estimate that they use, on average, 75% less charcoal with the Slow ‘N Sear than without it. That’s big savings over the course of the summer barbecue season - or all year!
  • Curved and angled basket walls
    • encourages fuel to nestle together evenly as it burns down. The closeness of the coals contributes to efficient lighting from one coal to the next
    • concentrates heat during the sear to generate searing temps topping 1000° F.
  • Open and easily accessible; simple to refill if needed.

Water reservoir:

  • Acts as both a heat shield to keep temperatures consistent on the indirect side of the grill and a vessel for water when moisture is required for low ‘n slow cooks.
  • Spans the length of the basket providing consistent water vapor throughout the charcoal burn.
  • One quart capacity lasts for 5+ hours at 225° F.
  • V-shape design ensures consistent steam production whether there is one quart or one ounce of water.
  • Removable to allow for an expanded high-heat sear zone when needed (in the Deluxe version only).

Durable construction:

  • Compared to many other products on the market, the Slow ‘N Sear is not a flimsy throwaway BBQ accessory. It is a durable tool that will deliver many years of grilling and barbecue flexibility. Elevate your backyard cooking game and become your friend’s and family’s favorite grill master!
