New 22" Blackstone Griddle

Our Boy Scout Troop bought a new Blackstone 22" griddle over the weekend. Got a great price at Sam's Club $99. Everywhere we were looking, they were going for $129 to $190 for this same griddle.

Due to Covid, this year at summer camp we must cook all our meals in our campsite, and not eat in the dining hall. We got the menu last Monday, and noticed 11 out of the 17 meals were grill or griddle work. We have nice griddles for our camp stoves, but they cannot handle a lot of grease. I hope this investment will really help speed up meal prep.

Here is a picture while seasoning it. I think I will take it camping with me to help break it in, and help add a few more layers to the seasoning process.

Good deal! I have a 36" at our cabin, and a 17" we take camping with us. Not sure about grease capacity on the 22", but the 17" will handle a few packages of bacon before it needs to be drained, and you really don't want to forget to do it. AMHIK. You cannot over season it, lol, so enjoy it and I'm glad y'all can even get the Scouts out this year.

We have the 22 and take it camping all the time. The grease cup in the back handles slot of grease. I was able to cook 2 packages with no problem.

Bought the package on sale from WalMart that includes the hood and stand. Today I received the bottle holder that bolts onto the side shelf and I already receive the adapter to use the coach's on board LPG and quick disconnect hose.

We we seriously discussed that one, and the 28" version. Found it interesting that they unit with the legs and cover is cheaper than the base unit. We decided it might be to large of a setup to carry around for normal camp outs as we do not have a troop trailer.

I have a 36 at home and a 22 we take with us camping. I barely use my grill any more! Love my Blackstones...

Have been reading up on Blackstone stuff, Really thinking about getting the 22 inch or the 28 inch for the house. Will be cheaper to run than our electric stove. when you have used it give us your impressions of it. Would like to know

We've been using our 22" for quite a while already and absolutely love the thing. We aren't much in the way of meat eaters anymore so our grill at home hasn't been fired up in years, it sits in the back yard shed. I really need to get rid of it.

Getting back to the Blackstone, it will cook about anything you want to put on it. My wife loves it too, since getting the griddle I like to do the cooking. I grin every time I'm using the griddle. It is that awesome.

When we bought ours it was from Walmart, $147 including the stand and metal flip cover. I also have it hosed into the camper so no more little bottles. Although it worked perfectly well that way also.

Have fun with it!

@ Parcany there is a learning curve, not a steep one. Best advise I can give you is just watch a bunch of Youtube videos.

While doing the initial seasoning, I was extremely surprised how hot this thing got. Could not image ever cooking on with the temp setting on much more than low.

Love my 22" Blackstone. I got rid of my small grill, cause it was a pain to clean, and who needs one with a griddle. It does get hot - low cooks at medium and medium cooks at high for me.

Used it over the weekend. It worked great. Every meal was done quickly. Cannot imagine trying to cook on any temp other than low, or a smidge higher.

High is only needed to clean the grill.

Only thing that I did not think turned out fabulous, was our hamburgers. I liked the crispiness when done on the grill.


DW, said we need one for ourselves.

The issue with burgers has been around for ages with the "flat top" vs "grill" debates of the restaurants.

Burgers and steaks are the reason my Blackstone is in addition to and not a replacement for the Weber Q that is in the rig.

Take some wax paper and a burger press and make "Smashburgers" You will get the benefit of juicy with a crisp outside.

Search for smashburger recipes there are many out there... My Blackstone has become my obsession!

I'm glad for two things

Summer camp is still on
And
I'm out of the Camp Director Business.

I hope you are using the Patrol method and having the Scouts cook. A lot of good will come out of the experience that will help the Troop for a long time.

We are a small troop, 11 scouts in total. 9 are committed to camp this year. 2 backed out due to Covid.

When I came into the troop and became Scoutmaster, it was an adult run program with maybe 3 camp outs a year. I believe in the patrol method. We are now a boy run unit! Sometimes that makes for interesting outcomes. Sometimes meals are.... well... maybe not so tasty. Spaghetti Noodle paste is one of my favorites. But they can make a fabulous Shepard's Pie.

When we reached 25 or so Scouts and had three patrols things really started to click. The year we had 50 at summer camp was great. The ten adults became a patrol and one of the ASMs kept them really busy so the Scouts had some breathing room.

One of our local camps always offered in camp cooking and talking to units that used that option sold me on the concept.

Good luck with the Troop.

Blackstone 17” and 28” Griddles

I purchased the 17” Blackstone Griddle about 3 months ago. We now make almost all of our meals on it (breakfast/lunch/dinner) when camping. Last week I bought the 28” Blackstone for use at home. I have found that not only does the food come out good, but I get a lot of enjoyment cooking on it. It also allows my wife more time to relax instead of her preparing meals, doing the dishes and cleaning up afterwords. There are also a lot of videos on YouTube with interesting ideas on what to cook on a Blackstone griddle.
