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.

Can a natural gas conversion work with the seas box?

Asked by: Timothy
I purchased the SE and added the Sear Box to it. I have both propane and natural gas available at my house. I was curious, so I performed a test. I used propane first and let the sear box come up to maximum heat. I am in Tucson AZ and outside temperature was in the 80's. My infrared thermometer indicated the cast iron plate was 980 deg F. I later switched the source to my natural gas line I have use for outside grilling. The maximum temperature reached was 740 deg F. So there was a loss of 240 degrees but still a temperature than can sear.

How does the Sear Box attach to the smoker? Is there a universal attachment that the box might attach to another brand of smoker? Dave

Asked by: Diane
there is not a universal attachment made for other brands of smokers, it is pre drilled for camp chef brands and it will also fit the Cabela's two wood pellet smokers.  if the end of  any smoker is large enough to drill matching holes to match the pre-drilled holes in the sear box it could be adapted.  I made a suggestion to Camp Chef that they should make a stand for the sear box so in could be used as a stand alone unit to be used by any customer regardless of the smoker used.  This is a fantastic attachment and I use it a lot by itself it cuts the time in half and makes a great steak.

Will the Sear Box fit MODEL #: PG36SGXB? It is not listed on the fitment models.

Asked by: Furd
I have the PG24SGB, and it is maid for the sear box to fit it. All of the new smokers are made for the sear box to fit. I would suggest that you put a couple of stainless washers between each bolt that goes to the smoker for a little extra clearance. You will be very happy with this purchase, and the sear box is the only way to go.

is it best to sear first and then smoke or just the opposite?

Asked by: bobf
Thank you for your question. You would reverse sear: Preheat your pellet grill to 225° F Cook the steak on this lower heat until it hits 10-15° below your desired temperature (medium-rare is 130-135° F). While the steak cooks, preheat the Sear Box to high heat. When the steak is ready for searing, place it on the heated Sear Box (a cast iron skillet with some oil will also work). Sear for about 45 seconds on one side, then flip and repeat. You may hold it sideways on the grates as well to sear the sides. You can serve immediately or let it rest for a minute or two. Either way, enjoy!
