Really missing my griddle this time of year. Camping has been done for us for almost a month now and the griddle is cleaned and put away for the season...

COME ON SPRING! Im ready to cook outside again and it hasn't even snowed yet...
I've been looking for one now to compliment my other outdoor equipment! I'm going to get the 36" because I've heard about hot spots on the smaller one. Couple of question though... Do have to use the cart/base or can you set it up on a table? How big is it when it's all folded up for storage?

You might be able to use the base with the legs folded up on a table, but I am guessing you would want it to be on a short table because its probibly about 10 inches tall with the legs folded up. You may also run into gas supply issues unless you reroute the gas line as mine seems to be pinched when the legs are folded. I would say its not much bigger than an average size gas grille when all put together and having its own legs really makes for nice cooking.
As far as storage, I place it between the bed and the wall of our camper during travel. I always put the base to the outside wall and the top between the base and the bed because im sure it could damage the wall from its weight.
I think if you buy one, you will be extremely happy with it. I was tempted to buy the blackstone oven I saw on clearance a couple weeks ago at LOWES, but was trying to figure out how much use I would get out of that. I dont suspect it would get used nearly as much as the griddle...

Philly cheese steaks
Tacos
eggs
pancakes
french toast
sausage
bacon
brats
hamburgs
hot dogs

just to name a few of the things we cooked on it this summer, MAN AM I HUNGRY RIGHT NOW....

U P camper i was the same as you on debating whether to pull the trigger on one. I can honestly say it is one of the best investments to our camping tools. Just go buy it and you will not be sorry. You will wonder how you ever cooked with out it. Just now you can cook everything at one time. Hope this helps.

I am definitely getting one. Just trying to determine how it will all work out for setup and storage. I'm in no hurry as it is winter, but I'm looking to jump on a deal when I find one.

I bought mine the end of feb, or early march this year and found it on sale at Meijer.com. Shipped to my door for under $300 (which was the best I could find at the time).

Also, if you are a facebook user, like thier page "Blackstone Products" and see all kinds of ideas of uses for their products.

Meijer.com would be perfect because we get multiple discounts with them (about 35%) but their website is under construction again and the online shopping is shut down for the time being. So I will continue to check on it. Thanks. And I'll have my wife like them on her FB so I can check it out.

In an effort to bring this thread back, I will post my latest pic of my blackstone 36" griddle. Note, the second one belongs to my buddys church (we donated it to them). This is a pic of fishing camp at Ludington state park in Michigan. on the two griddles, two mornings in a row, we cooked 6lbs bacon, 6lbs sausage, 5 dozen eggs, and 10lbs hash browns, all in less than an hour. Needless to say, the guys were all happy!
