Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect addition I bought this one month ago to go with my Camp Chef pellet smoker. The seat box gives the perfect finishing touches to your meat after you smoke it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Star Steakhouse In My Backyard I am spoiled. I have been learning the craft of grilling and BBQ'ing for over 20 years now, and my DLX with sear box has rendered eating out at a steakhouse wasted time and money. The sear that was missing or took to long to achieve with charcoal or oven broilers is now as simple as ever. I combo smoke and reverse sear and my Camp Chef setup are crushing 5-star steakhouses every time I step into my backyard kitchen. This is a must have addition for your DLX.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Accessary Purchased this product for my SmokePro DLX smoker/grill. Easy installation and grills to perfection. My wife wanted Hotdogs and the Searbox cooked them to perfection. Can't wait to smoke beef tenderloin and do a reverse sear. It made my SmokePro a complete awesome grilling/smoking machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth The Wait I was dying to purchase the sear box since I bought my smoker. Was finally able to purchase one last week. Works just as advertised. I've already seared off steaks, bacon wrapped asparagus, and some wahoo steaks. Awesome!

Can you add the sear box to any camp chef?

Asked by: Terry
Thank you for your question. The Sear Box is compatible with any of the Camp Chef Pellet Grills. If you have an older model SE grill, you may not have the holes pre-drilled on the side to install it. In that case, you could drill them yourself and then add it.

Can a natural gas conversion work with the seas box?

Asked by: Timothy
Thank you for your inquiry. We have been informed by the engineer that the sear box is hot enough, on propane, that if you hook it up to natural gas, that it would work just fine. You shouldn't need to do any further adjustments, like to the orifice, just disconnect the propane hose that comes with the sear box, and connect a natural gas hose. Now if it's not getting hot enough for your needs, then more than likely that is the reason, and we do not have a way to convert the valve orifice bigger for natural gas, at this time. Let us know if you have any other questions. -- Best Regards, Camp Chef

What is the temperature for the low and medium?

Asked by: Chardo
There are so many variables that play into the temperature of any grill, like the weather outside, how much food is on the grill, and whether the lid is open or closed. However, here is a rough estimate according to the facts: The BTU's for the sear box is 16,000 on high and gets to 900 degrees or higher. Therefore the approximate BTU's on medium are about 10,000 and will get around 600 degrees or so. Then on low the BTU's are about 4,000 and will be about 300 degrees or so.

Can the Sear Box be converted to natural gas?

Asked by: GAPilot
i assume the answer is yes in could be converted for use with natural gas, however some fittings would have to be changed to accomplish this, and you should consult an expert on the matter before trying this change for safety's sake .

So I already have a Treager. I was a gift. I would like to mount your sear box to the side. Will this be a pain. I am very mechanically inclined, do you think I would have any issues?

Asked by: Rick Road KIng
With our sear box, it would have to be mounted to the side. With the chimney's on the Treager may be in the way of you attaching it. Other than that, you will have to drill out the holes and find matching nuts to hold it in.

Can you fit this to the SmokePro STX model? If not, is there a way to retrofit it or get it professionally done?

Asked by: Bernard
Okay, so I just received my STX and per the installation video for the sear box on YouTube, the unit's body does have the five holes to mount the sear box. It does not have a location to mount the propane tank hook, but I wonder if it'll sit on the bottom shelf of the STX. Either way, I think it's a go! Thanks, Camp Chef for not forgetting the little folks with the STX who still want a sear box!
