For those who have discovered the amazing capabilities of the Camp Chef SmokePro Pellet Grills, the one feature they may have missed over traditional barbecue grills is the ability to seal in the flavor of their meat with a deep sear.

To provide those awesome grill marks and a deep sear, Camp Chef has introduced their propane powered BBQ Sear Box accessory.

Made of a polished stainless steel, the BBQ Sear Box attaches to the side of any SmokePro model by removing the side shelf and bolting the sear unit to the SmokePro pellet grill.

The BBQ Sear Box features a 16,000 BTU burner, a heat diffuser plate to convert flame into infrared heat and enamel coated, deep ridged cast iron grill plates to put deep, even sear marks on your meat. With 180 square inches of cooking surface, the BBQ Sear Box will provide up to 900 degrees of heat for a hard and fast sear.

A propane hanger bolts to the stand of your SmokePro and suspends your tank for easy mobility with the grill.

The BBQ Sear Box is an excellent way to take full advantage of the SmokePro by cooking your meat to that perfect temperature with flavor of your favorite smoke, using Camp Chef’s Premium Hardwood Pellets, then sealing in that delicious flavor with a reverse sear method. Or, sear the meat first and then place it in the SmokePro to get a delicious outside crust. Whichever way you do it, the BBQ Sear Box gives you the versatility to cook perfect steaks and juicy chops with the deep smoky flavor provided by your SmokePro Pellet Grill.

Don’t forget your peppers and onions on the BBQ Sear Box while your brats are perfectly grilled and smoked in the SmokePro, then quickly toss them on the cast iron grates for a little crunch. A fat hard roll, some spicy deli mustard, your onions and peppers and a juicy smoked bratwurst is about the epitome of summer outdoor dining.
