Been wanting one for a little bit. Wife asked if I was finally getting rid of my 20 + year old several times rebuilt heavy cast Charm Glow grill. I said NO! I cannot cook everything on a Blackstone griddle, some things need fire and smoke. At my cabin it's still a very old charcoal Weber kettle, or over the oak coals in the fire pit. Just thinking breakfast's or veggies would be easier on the griddle. Folks with the griddles still using your grills?

Yes I use my Napoleon grill and my 28” black stone griddle. I make breakfast, burgers, fried rice, Fajitas, amd much more on my black stone. The grill gets steaks, chickens, pork chops, ribs,burgers and Carolina Brightleaf Hot dogs on it.

I like my Blackstone. You can make a lot of stuff at one time on it. For me it gets used the most for breakfast. You can turn out a stack of french toast or pancakes in no time. It's another tool in a person's cooking arsenal.

I have a 17in PitBoss griddle for the camper. I still need my Green Mountain pellet grill for cooking some stuff. I also cook alot over wood coals, especially steaks, burgers and pork chops.

Now, that is what I had in mind! I agree on the breakfast aspect. But my garden is 30 foot from my outdoor kitchen area!! Still thinking any meat should have flame....

My children teamed up to buy me the 4 burner - heavy as a sun-a-gun - Blackstone. Thing is impressive and full of gadgetry.
I've enrolled in a 12 week college course to learn how to use it, which may be a smidge longer than learning how to fly a Cessna.
When they began explaining to dad (me) how much I could cook and grill on it, I asked them if they were all moving back home?
And then I gave them all a big hug and told them I love 'em. Grill or no grill.

Thing weighs 200+ lbs.
Bigger than most feral hogs I plug.
And it will grill starting "today."

Blessings!

Yep I hear they get better with use. Like a cast iron skillet. They get seasoned with use.

I have a 36" blackstone, a 3 burner propane grill, a webber charcoal grill, and a smoker. When we camp i bring only the blackstone as I can cook burgers, pork chops, ext.... and all the breakfeast or anything else you can think.

I would never get rid of the other cookers at home. Some days I just crave a good charcoal burger or steak. Other days the kids want pork chops or burgers and I dont feel like waiting for coals so the propane gets uncovered. The grill is less clean up to me.( Crank the heat and wire brush. The griddle I scrape clean and oil.)

Grill also does better on windy days than my griddle. My griddle has a gap between the griddle and frame/burners that the wind blows through. It still works, but deffinatly doesnt get as hot as on a calm day. I know there are ways to fix that, but I haven't felt it worth the time when I already have the other cookers.

I have been eyeing a Blackstone. They appear very practical, but I still love my Big Green Egg.

Just got one. It's still in the box though. I want to eat more vegetables and grilling is my preference. Thing weighs a ton. I'm finishing a new house to move into, so I hauled it over to there so I didn't have to move it twice. With the griddle and the smokers, I think I'll have things covered.

It sounds like you have a really nice bunchs of kids you raised Mark.

I am amazed what you can do on it, I have the 28" pro with a hood. Meat tastes better because you can sear it and it holds in the moisture and food cooks in its own juices adding flavor.
Wife wanted a shrimp stir fry. You can cook and steam the vegetables by adding a dome, then some Asian pre cooked noodles, then cook the shrimp, mix together and add some teriyaki sauce to finsh it off.
Was really good and fun to make.

Thank you all for the info.

Just saw a cooking video on the success of searing steaks to perfection on a griddle. The chef swore that preparing good steak was superior on a hot griddle than a grill, and in watching it, the finished product had every bit the appearance of a grilled steak , minus the rack lines. But cooked just right nonetheless. Perfectly browned and seared , seasonings , juicy and rare as you want inside.

I can't recall what griddle he used, but the idea stuck in my mind. Portable, and can be used in places where a grill cannot.

To me, this griddle seems like a big flat version of a wok for stir-fry. But even more versatile for other foods not prepared in the wok. It does look like a great addition to the chef's tools.
