Barbeque News Flash ...
Just got wind of a proper contraption that is designed for slow smoking with your Weber. It also acts as a hot spot for more control in grilling.
We still stand by our original DIY setup for slow smoking (CLICK for that article). The Slow'n Sear, however, looks like the next step up. A good measure of convenience plus important added options.
CLICK for the Slow'n Sear at the Adrenaline Barbeque Company website.
Besides being a Made-in-America product (as in, Made Right!) its design offers a large contained charcoal hopper for a long smoke without needing to refuel. Plus, a proper water jacket, which acts as a heat shield and moisture source.
We're going to get the Slow'n Sear Plus which features a bottom grate for the charcoal and an extension lip for stability. The bottom grate is supposed to prevent lit coal chunks from falling down. We think it'll also be good for saving any unused coals for the next use.
Slow'n Sear Plus is pictured below.
