Blackstone Griddle

For those that have room to carry one i highly recommend the 36" Blackstone griddle. We camp alot in big groups and we all set a menu and cook everything up at once. We are on our annual spring break camping trip and counting kids there are 22 of us.
I have been leaning towards getting one for sometime. Last week my wife and i where at Lowes and they had one out on display. We looked it over and liked that it could be folded up. Then the salesman says try it for 90 days if you don't like it just bring it back.
Well needless to say it ain't going back. Lol
This thing is the perfect size for cooking large amounts of food fast. It holds it heat and it evenly distributes it vey nicely. Here are some pictured of this morning breakfast. All done inside of 30 minutes. 4lbs of bacon and 36 pancakes.Click image for larger version

Sounds interesting. I have been looking at Camp Chef products similar to this but just can't bring myself to drop the coin on one at this time. I presume its propane? I'd really like one that could be used as a stand for dutch oven use as well.

Good Thread!! I was going to ask if anyone here had one before I ordered mine. I never did ask but did a lot of research before I ordered. The 28" model has a few more uses, but many complain of having hot spots. I ended up going to see one at Cabala's (they had both but only had the 28" set up) and their price was $330 for the 36". I found mine online at www.Meijer.com (there is a sale I think still going on) and ordered it sunday, shipped to my door for $296. I am excited for it to show up (supposed to arrive monday march 17) and put it together and give it a try.
We also usually have large groups while were camping so I figured it would be nice to have to feed a bunch of people and really I wanted it for the annual fishing trip I put together with a bunch of my friends and family.

Plowtoy you are gonna love it.
When you get it set up just follow the seasoning instructions and you will be good. It really is a nice griddle.
I am now searching for the bag to keep the griddle in when carrying it. The griddle is so heavy that a bag is a must have for easy transportation. Mine will stay set up at our seasonal site and i will just bag the griddle and store it inside the camper when we leave on sunday evening. Hope this helps.

Looks great. Been looking at a camp chef with griddle, but now this has me thinking. One question, has anyone hooked this up to the quick connect on your RV?

Hope this helps.

I just got back from Lowes to actually see one. Certainly heavy duty! I looked and it appears as though it would easily hook up to the quick connect. The Meijer website stated something about weighing 26 pounds, ya right, I think they left the "0" off the end!

Lol i think you are right on the weight. The griddle is heavy. I think the cart weighs around 26 lbs. hooking it up to the trailer would be sweet. I may look into doing that.

I have the 2 burner griddle for the camp chef which weighs in at 59 pounds by itself but it also has heat diffusers mounted on it and comes in slightly under 3/8" thick on cooking surface! I've cooked for 40 on a camping trip with no problem but had to cook everything seprately due to different temps and allergies!
