Default Slow N Sear Kamado

I'm not sure if anybody is interested in this or not but at the HPBExpo (a bbq related trade show I mentioned in a previous thread) I had a chance to talk to David Parrish (the guy who invented the Slow N Sear and a friend of mine.) He gave us a walk through of all the features and accessories of his new kamado.

I'm a little gun shy posting this because of how the youtube trolls came after me last time. Just to be clear, these EXPO videos aren't sponsored. In fact, I paid a lot of money to go to that trade show and the reason I went was to find cool new stuff to video and show it to you guys. I hope you like this one. I just think it's fun to see new stuff.

The next one is a conversation with the guy who blew up the Blaze Kamado with tannerite. lol. I hope to have that up later this week.

I find it weird that anyone would attack you for posting something like this. I enjoyed the video and I thank you for posting it. I probably wouldn't be kicking down any doors to buy that grill. Especially at the $1500 price tag I've seen it listed at. It would have been cool to be at that expo to check all of that stuff out though.

I have to say after seeing your interview I’m impressed & semi interested in this one now. The thread on Kamado specific site was negative (IMO) so I didn’t look into this cooker but seeing it here has brought a new perspective. So in other words, thanks!

Thanks for the video. From what I can see, it looks like a customized Auplex product with a number of top end upgrades over the cheaper grills from them, plus the SnS products and grate system.

IMHO The pricing is too close to the KJ Big Joe which is a couple inches bigger and has some significant advantages including the low weight hinge and the better gasket. Or for less, the Costco Pit Boss/Louisiana kamado (also Auplex) plus a CGS adjustable rig and spider, and gasket upgrade will do as much or more for under $1000.

The other issue is do you really need or want a SnS in a kamado? Standard kamados already do super slow sub 200 to super hot 1200+ searing very well.

It looks like a nice product and overall well thought out, just not sure where it fits in a crowded market.

Thanks for the video/info Justin.
I'll skip my thoughts why I don't think it is a great product.

Because of their name I'm sure they will sell quite a few.

It was a really fun couple of days. I was surprised how many companies were there.

yeah, I thought it was Auplex kamado too but it's not. He went with a different company. He actually changed pretty much everything about the cooker except what it looks like in pictures...which is ironic because pretty much the only input I had on this was "make it look unique...something people can immediately appreciate in pictures." (He never listens to me. lol.) The reason I suggested that is I've had dozens of people over the years tell me they saw the summit for 399 at home depot. They didn't, they saw the Performer but it made me appreciate how important it is that this cookers have a distinct look.

I must say I'm tempted by this, mainly because I really want to find a way to add a slow n sear to my collection. But it's close enough to the price point of other, larger kamados (older KJBJ; WSC) that I don't see a unique value proposition here. But I'll reserve judgment until Justin posts a review video

Lol. It looks like a much nicer cooker than pictures would indicate. The materials are top of the line. They wanted the best ceramic and the metal parts at 304 SS and again the size is bigger than the normal 18 inch Kamados. That said I donít have one so I probably wonít do a formal review

No worries man. Like I said I donít care if itís not your thing. Not every Cooker works for everybody. What gets me is when people accuse me of being a sellout because I am not disclosing taking money...when Iím not taking any.

I think Iíve done three sponsored videos on my channel. Maybe four. And I always disclose it. Nobody seems to care. Where I really get called the most names is when I donít ďadmit I am taking moneyĒ on videos Iím not taking money for. Itís insanity. The real irony is when They go on and tell me about all of the other YouTuberĎs they like better Because they just do it ďfor the love of the gameĒ and the guys they mentioned liking better are guys who are actually getting paid on everything they do and not disclosing it! Lol itís crazy

This is why I sometimes regret being able to see behind the curtain if you will. Knowing who is a shill and who really doesn't know how to cook etc ruins videos for me at times. That all being said, I can confirm Justin isn't a shill.

Too many people concern themselves with other peopleís business, they can pound sand!

Just do what you do Justin and pay ZERO attention to the distractors...

Pretty good chance they are jealous but they themselves arenít willing to put in the work, so they choose to tear down those that do.

Letíem eat cake...
