Slow ‘N Sear XL Review

Six months ago I published my review of the Slow 'N Sear. I ended up falling in love with it.  It functions great as a low'n'slow system while still kicking ass as a hot zone / cool zone divider. Bonus points, the design of the product keeps the exterior of the Weber kettle significantly cooler [...]

“Patent Pending” Fleetwood, with rare rotisserie

When this first appeared on WKC's radar, forum members collectively held their breath. Who picked it up, and why did we want to see more?
