Slow n Sear??

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a Weber 26 and I recently got a Slow n Sear because I couldn't find anything but raving reviews.

When shooting for 225, I can hold it for a couple of hours (at most) but the temp spikes once the lit coals reach the wider part of the SnS regardless of how I position the vents. Is anyone else getting 5+ hours of low temps with this thing??

Thinking of going back to the snake method for low and slow but the SnS was so pricey that I'd like to find at least one benefit.

Thoughts? Thanks in advance - Matt

Matt I do not have the slow and sear 

I have a homemade unit,I was able to hold 250* for a few hrs.

When you lay out your coals do you fill the charcoal compartment? If yes cut it way down 

Here is what I made

I used a BBQ stick as a gauge I think a tooth pick will enable me to get lower temps

Hope this helps

Matt,

Why don't you ask the question on Adrenaline BBQ website's chatroom?   The moderator, David Parrish is pretty good in helping people in getting their SnS set up correctly.  Yes, sounds like too much charcoal.

Tried on their twitter page with no response but they might not monitor it. Should've looked at their site. Great idea, thanks.

Welcome to the forum.

 

Looks like a very nice accessory, could your problem be caused by your water reservoir going dry?

 

Thanks for posting,

Maybe the air vents are open to wide, too many lit charcoals and is there water in the reservoir? I have one and it does not require a lot of lit coals. I put maybe 25 or so and add about 6 lit coals on one side. Adding more coals as needed along with wood chunks. Mine will hold real steady at 250 - 275 range.

 

Here is the link to their site on lighting instructions:
