Blackstone Outdoor Griddle

Recommended Posts

Anyone here cooking on one of these? My wife bought me the portable 22" Blackstone griddle for Christmas. We plan to use it up at our camper up north so I haven't even taken it out of the box yet.

 

If anyone here is using one I would love to see the pics and hear what you are cooking on it.

Ok, but where do you put the pellets in that son-O-bach!  🤣

 

No pellets, it's just an over priced griddle.

I have one.

 

In my shed.

 

Among other things I’m storing for my buddy.  He said it was pretty cool; likes it a lot.  Told me to try it but I haven’t cuz I don’t wanna like it a lot and have to buy one.

 

Same mentality I have about new snowmobiles. 😉

 

Hope you enjoy it BD.

I think I will be using it mostly to make breakfast, sausage, eggs, pancakes, hash browns and the like. Most people who have them seem to be using it for that, smash burgers, fajitas, steaks, and much more.

I have the same portable griddle at home and prefer it over the standalone at the lake.  The best thing we make on the griddle is blackened fish tacos.  It makes a mess and a lot of smoke, so being outdoors is a plus.  Breakfast is decent and the fried rice, habachi style, is good.  If you are a fan of real coney dogs like the Gopher Bar, then this will help you get close to the same flavor.  Have to griddle the dogs a little crisp and toast the buns with butter.

I actually bought this carbon steel griddle from Lodge last fall and prefer it.  Use it on both the stove top and the grill.  The Blackstone will be retired and given to a friend who wants it.

I have a griddle for my camp chef 3 burner.   Works great.  No lip on the front so grease will run off into a little trough,

I guess my question big d would be how even it cooks. You know how some of them electric griddles can be, or even a small portable grill gas grill with the with a small flame down the middle. We have a cast griddle like was mentioned at the cabin that gets used either stove top or grill that works great. Just a thought..

Mine cooks fairly even.  Trick is to let it heat up for about 20+ minutes before using.

 

Wondering if anyone has used one of these to clean their griddle.  I saw a guy in our cafeteria cleaning the flat top with this thing and I asked him what it was.  He said they are the trick to keeping their commercial griddles clean.

The blackstone griddles are carbon steel and rely on a layer of seasoning (polymerized oil) to make them rust resistant and non stick, the commercial flat tops are stainless and are run bare and scrapped clean.

I wouldn't use a grill stone on a blackstone you will remove your seasoning and your grill will rust and your food will stick.

    • I really like this layout! I’m hoping that you are doing spray foam on the walls? 
    • You mean not have the back rollers underwater? That could be what I’m doing I just noticed the last three times  it seems to wanna lean to that side 
    • Could you be putting the trailer in too far?  I’ve noticed I’m better off keeping the roller trailers shallower on the launch than bunk trailers.  Let the rollers do the work of guiding the boat on.
    • I notice that when I land my boat, it leans more to the right side of trailer. It isn't serious but it pushes a bit on the fender. I don't see anything off with any of the rollers. Is this unusual?
    • Heck ya!  You got some plans!  They were all sounding fun and then you throw in the Barbary sheep and go right off the charts. 😄   I tried with a group for an any deer in SD but didn’t get drawn.  Again.  5 preference points now and by the sounds of it that won’t be enough for next year either.   I got permission to bear hunt a property in the no quota area that reportedly has 3 bears living on it so I might try that my first time.   Otherwise it’s been all about waterfowling in the plans department.  In the best case scenario those plans would cover 4 states and both coasts.
    • Hi,   I'm new to the forum and opening up and old conversation, but the symptoms of deerhunter sound very similar to my new Suzuki 140A that I got. My old Ficht Ram did not give any vibration but a brand new 140A vibrates the boat similar to deerhunter's description.   Deerhunter, I know this topic is quite old but could you perhaps share what happened with your motor? Did you get the new power head and did it make the difference?    It would help a lot to understand your experiences as I'm currently having similar issues with a similar kind of an engine.   Thanks. 
    • Thats the thing decoys are like calls,guns and  Its all about what you like. They ALL work.. Its ALL GOOD... The guys that post negative [PoorWordUsage] likethis is the only one to use and nothings better are either some prostaff or someone validating what the bought. Its GOOD to be proud of what you own,made or do... This is what Im doing today.. This is about a hour+ scrapped.. Not happy with the eye set so I cut them off and will try again.. Double flocking on my birds requires a outset set eye so the eyering stands out need to use a smaller lower profile glass.. Tough to do with shaky hands and 15year old red apoxie sculpt.. Even more funs putting pinpoint pupils on the smaller glass....
    • What does everyone have going on for this fall as far as bow hunting? I have a fun fall planned.   My son and I are going to Montana on a general elk tag in September. That will be his 1st elk hunt-- I'm excited about it, and so is he. He and I also drew North Dakota any deer tags so we will hunt mule deer for a couple long weekends too. I will also chase deer in Minnesota. Finally I got lucky and drew an archery barbary sheep tag in New Mexico. Should be a fun season for sure.    What does everyone else have planned?
    • Looks like she picked up a few extra little ones along the way.
