Thanks. I've been trying to figure out how to make my own for a while. Just cant get it right, would love to have it like I get at the local taco shops...which is what yours looks like.
There is a mexican market in town that I've bought chorizo from in the past, maybe I'll stop back by and see if they can help me.

I have only made 2 bad meals on this thing. The first, I bought tenderized skirt steak and tried making Pappasitos fajitas. Once again tonight I tried them again. I thought the tenderized steak was the problem. It was not. I think the soy/pineapple marinade needs flames to be properly burnt off. I have made fajitas once a week for a month using the premartinated HEB fajitas and they have been awesome. Im losing the Pappasitos recipe for the blackstone.

Anyone have a recommendation for installing one in an outdoor kitchen? Tons of drop in grills but can’t find a drop in griddle.

You can take the legs off the standard Blackstone (especially the stainless model) and mount it in a recess that has proper ventilation and heat resistant materials. That's what I plan to do.

Not me! I love bacon, but I also love corn, burgers, fillet mignon, etc. If you wrap something in bacon, it no longer tastes like it was... Bacon on a burger is no longer a burger, but just bacon with other fillers... same with corn... Bacon flavored corn just don't sound good to me...

I dragged one out of Home Depot today. However, not before the guys helping me managed to help me collapse one and basically destroy the base. Whoops.

They had both the front and rear drain models. I went with the rear. I think that will work better.

Season and start to use tomorrow, I hope.

I got this exact model last week as well and freaking love it. I need one for the lake as well but want the stainless model for there. I cannot find the stainless model with the rear grease drain. Did you see the stainless ones with rear grease at Home Depot? Anyone seen this combo?

BTW-the rear grease deal works awesome. Grease dispenses perfect and the best part is the ability to use the front "wall" to aid in the cooking/flipping of burgers or eggs and such.

The back drain really is a huge plus I think.

You know what I'm going try to do with my outdoor kitchen install is have my contractor build a kind of adjustable "lift" where I can turn a dial or something and raise and lower the front of the griddle. I like to be able to be able to have a "puddle" of grease up front sometimes-like for frying eggs and other things and then some times I'd like it level, and other times have it tilt back so it drains the grease off. Maybe I'm over thinking it?

I have the Blackstone 28” model and it’s awesome, getting the 22” stainless model for travel trailer use. I can’t believe how easy it is to cook on, everything turns out great and cleanup is a breeze!

Got home last night and my bride had a bunch of veggies cut up from the garden... I took out some Red Deer Hind steaks and whipped up dinner... start to finish (not counting the 10 minute clean up), it took maybe 15-18 minutes to create a feast!! Sauteed zucchini, squash, peppers, n onions and hot seared Red Deer fillet medallions...

IMO the Blackstone is better made. It's more durable, and better built. I would get the one with the rear grease drain though.

I was at the Walmart in Livingston and they had the display 36'' marked down to $108, so I bought it. It had some surface rust from the sale sign but most of that came right off.

Anyone with the 28" give me the measurement of the main cabinet? As if you were going to cut the legs off and build it into a countertop for an outdoor kitchen?

So I got my 36in Blackstone today and it looks like a bad mother.. The problem is I have ten bolts/screws and only 8 nuts. So now I can’t install the tank holder on the side. Did anyone else face this problem while they were assembling theirs?

On the side of the box it has 45" Wide 19.25" Deep The height is 33" so that included the legs. Wen I get out of the box I will measure just the griddle part.
