I couldn't take all the flat top talk so I had to buy one today. In the seasoning process now. It's not a Blackstone, but the Sam's Club brand was only $200. I couldn't justify another $400 for the Blackstone.

Any suggestions to get it seasoned better. I have one we take camping and the surface is pretty rough. Some things like eggs stick terrible. I seasoned it according to the instructions when new. Maybe I just haven't used it enough.

I'll let you know how this works out, lol. So far, just following mfg instructions. Basically, lightly oil, bring to smoking temp and continue heat for 30 minutes, repeat, repeat. It looks like it's going to require a 12 pack before I get to cook something. cool

Is it possible you aren't getting it clean? Sometimes I use a scouring pad made by Blackstone to clean mine. Seasonings really like to bake on and not come off.

You may have eto strip it down and start over.

We bought a Weber Grill 47 years ago and it still works great on many items. I especially like it for larger birds like my wild turkey. I can cook slowly for several hours and baste etc. while doing numerous other outdoor tasks. It has made it throghmany T-storms too when I forgot t get it in the garage.

47 years Bryce? That's a Guinness Book of Records grill.
Although I may have shirts that old also (according to my wife).
Some things are just meant to keep.

Keep on grilling my friend.

I broke down and bought one a few months ago. Great for grilling Jalapeno‘s and onions before grinding them up for salsa and perfect for making Jesse Kelly burgers.

If you're into Blackstone grills, the best source I know of for seasoning and cooking recipes is: "The Hungry Hussy" on YouTube. :-)

Well, I fired up my new Member's Mark brand flattop grill. Apparently, I followed the seasoning process correctly. Nothing stuck to it. I started with some crappy, thin bacon and found my temperature to be a bit high. Cooked off a half pound in about 3 minutes. Lol. I then lowered the temp a bit and fryed up another half pound of good, thick bacon. Turned out perfect. Pushed that to the side and dumped on some hash browns . Had the turn up the heat a bit on one side for that, started some over-easy eggs when the hasbrowns were almost done. They cooked perfectly and did not stick at all. The cooking surface doesn't appear to heat all that evenly, but it seems to cook pretty evenly, if that makes sense. After the first use, I would, definitely, recommend this grill. It's going to save me a ton on air conditioning the house by cooking outside!

While the surface is still hot, squirt some water on it and scrape real good. After that wipe down with a paper towel and oil lightly.

I use a handheld IR thermometer. Definitely some hot spots but the cast iron does help to distribute the heat once it heats up. The burner is H shaped though...

Well, after reading all these posts and listening to my son about his Blackstone, I walked into a deal on a Pit Boss 2 burner at Farm and Fleet for $109.99. Spent the morning seasoning it and of course the first thing I cooked on it was a pound of bacon. We're going to try a Ribeye and hash brown tonight.

I wanted a small, portable one for in our motorhome.

This is going to be fun!

I don't know if I could make myself drop a ribeye on anything but a grate over a fire. However, I'll second the hash browns. Best ever!
