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.

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 just looked at that in a menards today!!!! I don't see where i'd use it. be interested to see what others think. could change my mind.

 

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,

They also make a flat top unit.

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.

    • To cold smoke you really need to keep the temperature under 90 degrees. This is pretty hard even when you use an AMNPS tray or tube in a smoker chamber. It can be done by putting a pan of ice  between the AMNPS an what you are smoking, or by leaving the door of the smoker open a bit to let out the heat. The best solution is to make something similar to the mailbox mod, or buying a smoke generator. The attached photo is what I made (similar to the mailbox mod) to attach to my Pit Barrel cooker. I made it out of an old aluminum roaster with a couple aluminum elbows. It generates light blue smoke with no heat. I don’t smoke much fish, mostly bellies, cheese, eggs, etc. as for the cold smoking resources, just Google cold smoking and you will get all the information you need.   
    • Finally picked up one yesterday. Getting it seasoned this morning  just have to figure out what to cook on it now 😀   Going to try some cheese steaks tonight. Breakfast tomorrow morning and then some hibachi.   I already see myself getting the bigger unit. But this little one will be perfect for tailgate meal after a long hunt this fall and in the ice house this winter.  
    • My rainbow trout turned out pretty good. My smoke time was just under 3 hours. I ended up finishing it off in the oven. The fish had a nice smoke taste to it. I used apple chunks. I want to use alder next time.
    • I would think most smokers would have a hard time not getting too warm for cold smoking. But you could get a pellet tube and put it in your smoker and see where your at temp wise and just leave your smoker off and just get the heat from the pellet tube.
    • Big Chief electric smoker, top self of smoker (a little lower temp on top shelves). I don't have a temperature gauge in there yet. After doing some reading online, I think my temp is closer to 160.
    • What kind of smoker are you using?
    • Want to sell your 1890?  I'm looking for that exact boat.
    • Are there any good books, websites or forums for cold smoking? Any basic tips or info? I am trying cold smoking a chunk of rainbow trout today (around 140 degrees), Thanks minky
    • Trying new paint techniques on my new hens. Laying in the base colors on feather groups. The primaries are gonna get redone..
    • Sorry to hear about your adversity Scoot. You certainly do have your priorities right. Ryan will learn some great life lessons from these situations. Sometimes life just gets in the way of our best laid plans. I learned this personally the last 2 years. Had all kinds of plans. Then diagnosed with 2 cancers. Had to cancel a long planned first western hunt. Montana archery elk. Made it a goal to do that trip the next year which was last year. I fought and worked like hell to make that happen and it did. The goal was to get up on a Montana mountain top and hear a bull elk bugle.  Happened the first morning. Very emotional time. Didn't have to kill anything to fulfill a dream. All is well now and looking forward to a healthy fall. Hopefully you and Ryan will be back in the field shortly and be able to look back with an extra sense of appreciation and strength. As you know, cancer sucks.  Wishing your father healing and blessings for you all.
