Snake Method vs Slow ‘N Sear Efficiency Test using identical kettles, amounts of charcoal, and thermostatic controllers to scientifically prove whether the Slow ‘N Sear combined with a Kettle Charcoal Grill is more efficient than a Kettle Charcoal Grill set up to smoke meat using the “Snake” method.
Notes for this comparison.
Weather was Sunny and 96 F at 2 PM when test began. Temps maxed at 99 F at 6 PM then slowly drifted down to 75 F by 3 AM, which is when the Snake Method kettle ran out of charcoal. The weather continued to stay in the 73 F to 75 F range while the Slow ’N Sear equipped kettle maintained 225 F until it ran out of charcoal at 6:30 AM. We suspect the efficiency test difference would have been even more dramatic if the temperatures had not cooled off and remained cool after the Snake method kettle ran out of charcoal. We also suspect the difference would be more dramatic in cooler weather.
