Hi Jamie, what are your thoughts on the Slow n Sear? Meathead of Amazingribs.com touts it as "the Single Best Accessory For The Weber Kettle Ever." I've used it a couple of times and I think it's really convenient but not necessary. Also, is there a specific brand of charcoal you prefer? I'm really liking the Weber briquettes over the Kingsford but it does come at a premium price when not on sale. Thank you.
