I have the Blackstone spatula set and I don't really like them... They're pretty flimsy. I'd try to find stiffer ones if I were you.

First thing I did before I ever used my 36" Blackstone was to put a 20 psi adjustable regulator on it. You can turn that griddle cherry red if you want with that adjustable regulator... Just do a search on Amazon for 20 psi adjustable LP Gas regulator... Or you can look back in this thread. That's where I learned about them.

Thanks for the help, Iíll give that a shot.

It all goes in the trap. There is some build up in the hole that funnels the grease but it is easy to clean.

That's what I did a few years back when my propane grill bit the dust. I have a charcoal grill if I need it, but 99% of everything I do can be done on the griddle.

Do you get the flavor from the griddle that you do a grill?

Actually better on burgers and such once you get your griddle seasoned in. Why do you think Whataburger patties are so tasty?
If I want a big thick steak, I'll put it on the charcoal grill with mesquite to get flavor. You can still do thick steak or chicken on the griddle and finish up in the oven.
Biggest thing is I can cook several things at one time and items you could not do on the grill. Things like fish, breakfast, rice, vegetables, etc are much easier or able to do on the griddle.

I agree one of the best things about a griddle is you can cook a whole meal at once and it all comes off hot at the same time, especially breakfast... eggs, bacon, hash browns, and toast all at the same time, even some scrambled and some fried, etc. Combinations are endless...

Are you doing the meat yourself? Might need to add something to the marinade to help tenderize it. Pineapple juice or something.

The local Mexican meat markets have it plenty tender. No problems on the griddle.

Done fajitas several times... If you buy the HEB pre-seasoned/marinated fajitas, they're almost always tender... Also don't cook 'em fast and keep 'em medium, even medium rare... the more you cook fajitas, the tougher they get has been my experience...

NannySlayer, it can be made good as new. There are tips on the Blackstone website I believe for cleaning them. YouTube also. Just clean and reseason and you're good to go.

Well my first deer of 2018 just turned into a rare venison steak. Trimmed the backstraps and "warmed" them on the griddle.

I think that chicken feed, is mostly black pepper. But if it was chicken ****, I'd scrape it off and eat everything else!

I picked up the 36” Blackstone this evening at Walmart for $237. I also got the cover, a spatula set (one listed in the pic above) and the basting ring. Picked up 2 new propane tanks as well. I’ll get it all set up in the morning and ready to cook. The first cook will be 3lbs of Wright’s thick cut bacon.
