Just ordered a set of griddle plates for my travel Coleman grill. We are taking it to Red River this coming week. Also got a set of griddle tools to cook with. I'll be referencing this thread for recipe ideas. Looking forward to it.

I'm ready to take the plunge. Is there any real advantage/preference of front side grease drain, versus the rear grease drain?

Depending on brand itís not really an option. I have a front drain and wish mine was a rear to push the grease away from me. On the blackstone, the rear drain is a better design.

Thanks.... I'm looking atBlackstone and was leaning towards rear drain, but my local TSC seems to have the older model (front/side drain) on hand. I'll take a pass on that one.

Sitting here drinking a cold one, while I'm seasoning my new BS griddle. Glad I finally pulled the trigger and got one, and my wife's glad to have me do some of the cooking for awhile. New toy enjoyment level 100

Upon unscrewing the button, there isnít a metal piece on the button side that completes the circuit on the battery.

So check it out in the rents back yard (it will be staying here until I build a house):


The pic from Facebook:


I got a tool kit from academy, scraped it cold and got a ton of rust off of it. Then I got it super hot and put canola oil on it. And scrapped it again. Repeated that process about three times. Then I cooked a whole pack of bacon on it. On Fatherís Day I had 16 burgers on it and the cooked another pack of bacon on it.
After each time I cook on it I squirt water on it from bottle while itís super hot and use a rag to wipe it all down, then use a paper towel and canola oil and wipe it down again.
It cooks but it doesnít look pretty. What would be the easiest way to get it down to bare metal so I can re-season it?
Black stone put out a video using a grill stone? Have any of yíall used one before? Any special trick or tips to strip down and re-season?

Iím excited to get to cooking on it! Blackened some dang fine trout on it tonight!

It’s a simple method that I’ve developed with much research and trial (no error).
1) season griddle
2) place a pig-load of bacon on and heat
3) sample often
4) remove bacon and enjoy
5) wipe griddle down

Breakfast is my favorite meal to do on the griddle... You can cook all those things at the same time and it's all hot and delicious as it comes off the griddle and onto the plate together.

Agree, I have a blackstone 36" and go through spells of cooking 3 or 4 times a week then I'll stop for a few weeks.

Haven't found anything it won't cook.

Fried rice is a favorite.

We have a Blue Rhino, I liked the way the metal cover unfolds, out into two work areas. I got it for my wife. She uses her gas grille to cook dinner fairly often, has for many years. So I thought a griddle would be a great idea for her. Got her one, then she as only used it once, maybe. I use it to cook chorizo, eggs and tortillas. We buy the raw tortillas from HEB, then I cook them on the griddle. I can cook up a half link of chorizo, four eggs and eight tortillas, fast. I got it down. That thing is a breakfast cooking master piece. I have been cooking chorizo and eggs for breakfast for years, then tortillas. It used to be at least a 30 minute process, probably more like 45 minutes to an hour to get everything done, in the kitchen. Now with the griddle, I can have everything done, in probably ten minutes. I love it, I know it's great for cooking other stuff also, but it has turned into my breakfast machine.

The only problem I was having with it, was mice getting on top of the griddle surface, when it was stored, we tried a couple different things. then I came up with the idea of making a wooden box to fill the space up, between the top of the griddle and the bottom of the metal cover. This filler/box thing, completely takes up all the space on top of the griddle. Mouse problem has been cured. The mouse fix, I just designed and came up with the measurements, not much to it. It is taller on the front, than the rear, because the surface of the griddle slopes to the front, I guess for grease drainage. I had a cabinet maker buddy of mine make it for me.

In these pictures, the grease drain pan, is removed, guess I was cleaning it, at the time I took these pictures. I use the grease drain pan as a place to put the egg shells after I have cracked them and I also stuff paper towels I have used to wipe things down as I am cooking.

Be careful if you really blacken with it. In order to truly cook with the "blackening" process, the griddle will have to be red hot, then drop the cold fillets on it... That steel can and will warp on you if you don't heat the whole griddle evenly, and it might not return to its neutral flat state afterwards. Steel is a LOT different than cast iron, especially that big of a piece of steel as compared to a round cast iron skillet or stove top cast iron griddle.

Make sure it stays dry. Especially when you use it last and clean it. Heat that sucker up again to burn off all the moisture. Even a little moisture can cause rust.

Ok. I assume maybe a little moisture from temp changes in the garage based on the weather.

After cooking, what is the best method? Do I leave oil on it after I clean it?

I love my griddle. I bought 2 of them

I do leave a very light coat of oil on it after I’ve cleaned it and heated it up to dry.

So I thought a griddle would be a great idea for her. Got her one, then she as only used it once, maybe. I use it to cook chorizo, eggs and tortillas. We buy the raw tortillas from HEB, then I cook them on the griddle. I can cook up a half link of chorizo, four eggs and eight tortillas, fast. I got it down. That thing is a breakfast cooking master piece. I have been cooking chorizo and eggs for breakfast for years, then tortillas. It used to be at least a 30 minute process, probably more like 45 minutes to an hour to get everything done, in the kitchen. Now with the griddle, I can have everything done, in probably ten minutes. I love it, I know it's great for cooking other stuff also, but it has turned into my breakfast machine.

The only problem I was having with it, was mice getting on top of the griddle surface, when it was stored, we tried a couple different things. then I came up with the idea of making a wooden box to fill the space up, between the top of the griddle and the bottom of the metal cover. This filler/box thing, completely takes up all the space on top of the griddle. Mouse problem has been cured. The mouse fix, I just designed and came up with the measurements, not much to it. It is taller on the front, than the rear, because the surface of the griddle slopes to the front, I guess for grease drainage. I had a cabinet maker buddy of mine make it for me.

In these pictures, the grease drain pan, is removed, guess I was cleaning it, at the time I took these pictures. I use the grease drain pan as a place to put the egg shells after I have cracked them and I also stuff paper towels I have used to wipe things down as I am cooking.
Good idea. Thx God, mice or rats donít bother us, they can bring a lot of problems. Also thx for the nice ideas for breakfast
Best wishes

During this hard freeze the griddle could be used as a heater and stove if the power goes out.

Filled my griddle propane tank just for this reason.

If you use it indoors, make sure you have ventilation... Griddles by their very nature do not burn efficiently and will produce CO for sure... Crack a window or door for sure and NEVER go to bed and leave one burning, especially "on low"... That's the worst thing for most any gas powered heating/cooking device for efficient burning.
