On the bright side

All my purchases for the RV have started to show up. Seasoned up the Blackstone and cooked everyone breakfast in the garage. The 9th winter has arrived up here in Saskatchewan.
7 deg up here this morning with -20 wind chill.

How do you like the Blackstone so far? Did you just get it? Have you got the griddle plus the grill?

I've looked at them, but wondered about the smoke flavor that you get from a regular grill.
I have a Charbroil and a smoker box I place on top with wood chips.

I agree with Lloyd. I don't understand the big draw. Maybe someone could fill us in. If i understand correctly it is a flat surface griddle. And does it have a way to drain the grease away?

Sorry been busy and haven't had a chance to chime back in. Love the solid surface.

We have a weber 2200 and its great and we bought the 1/2 griddle for it. Well it sucked. Cant cook enough to feed 2 adults. Not to mention my teenage kids.
And then we bought the 2nd 1/2 griddle which caused the flame to choke and never heat.

Thought I would try this, and it works good. Mine has a little crown to the center so eggs are still fun to cook. Also pay attention to which one you buy if doing it online. I wanted one to have the grease catch at back so I had to purchase from amazon. Walmarts up here only had the front drain.

Also the stand is about the most under designed piece of crap I have ever seen. Legs don't lock in exact heights. they have divets you are to set a hand screw to level. It makes it time consuming if you are by yourself.

As for heating this thing is awesome, even heat completely perfect. Now I have to make an 8 in square plate to cook burgers/bacon, or whatever else you want to cook flat. I actually sacrificed one of my wifes warming trays to make a cover so you can kind of turn off one burner and keep stuff warm by covering 1/2 the blackstone.

I’ve been using the 17 inch Blackstone griddle for a couple seasons now. It works really well. I have the front drain, which also works well and is easy to empty. I find the griddle to get really hot (nice). I’ve bought adapters so I can use the 1 lb propane bottle, the larger 20 or 30 lb, or plug it into the RV propane quick connect.

I always spray Pam or similar on before cooking. I also will cover with an aluminum pan if cooking bacon or chicken to contain the heat and avoid grease splatter.

When I’m done cooking, I scrape any left over off, and spray with Pam again before covering. This will help prevent any rust on the griddle. When I didn’t do this I did get some rust I had to deal with. I bought the cover and bag, which works great for the 17” model. If I had to do it again I might buy the 22” model for more griddle space.

I’ve also cooked just about everything on the griddle, but prefer steaks and burgers on the bbq.

Well 7 degrees is balmy compared to -15 degrees here in Calgary this AM. Winter arriving,,,,,, winter hasnt left yet. No camping in this province, the govt started out closing all facilities at Prov. Parks (ie: no out houses) then they closed All Prov. Parks, Fed parks are closed, RCMP gave a couple of kids (teenagers) $1200.00 worth of tickets yesterday, for sitting in a car, they weren't practising Social Isolation. Don't know what they were doing perhaps practising submarine diving, who knows. Welcome to camping season.

After running out of gas and switching tanks, the burgers and hot dogs came out great. The grease runs of to back of grill where there is a slot and collection pan underneath.

All tasted great.0

I picked one up this morning, along with the stand and hood, and seasoned it today as well. Nice unit, and I am hoping to try it out this weekend while sipping on a few at the campground. One small thing that kinda bothered me..... The shelf when using the 22" griddle is 14" wide, but 5 or 6" of that is blocked by the durn propane inlet. When camping, I will be hooked to the RV tanks, so the hose will drop in front of the shelf, but it is up higher than the shelf, so it still partially blocks it. I seasoned it in the garage using a 1lb bottle, and that totally fubar'd 1/2 the shelf space. They should have dropped the connection out under the front edge of the unit.
Anyway, after it cooled down, and I stared at it for a little bit, I simply lifted the griddle off, and spun it 180, so the shelf is on the left. problem solved. The logo on the stand is facing the back now, but I'm not gonna lose sleep over that. More often than not I'll probably just have it setting on one of my tables anyway. I like lots of counter real estate when I'm cooking! lol
