Default Best portable propane griddle

Looking for recommendations on a portable griddle (probably a 2 burner) to lug around from work to the lease and what not.

Pit boss has good reviews along with black stone and other brands on Amazon but was curious on user reviews and recommendations.

Blackstone --> https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...ref_=pd_gw_unk

Pitboss --> https://www.amazon.com/PIT-BOSS-PB33...84T9HH8N&psc=1

Royal Gourmet --> https://www.amazon.com/Royal-Gourmet...1ENX3VX2&psc=1

We bought that same blackstone about a month or two ago for the trips to Rayburn and take to the lease. Got it seasoned and used once at Rayburn fathers day weekend. It made some great burgers with grilled onions and jalapenos👍

Camp chef 2 burner and you can do everything from fry fish to scrambling eggs for the same money.

Black Stone no questions.....

I didnt take mine to the frio BC my cousin said they had one. Showed up and it was a camp chef 2 burner with the griddle top. Not knocking the camp shift, but it was nothing like cooking on a blackstone. It was a pain doing smash burgers and breakfast compared to a blackstone. Doable, but not as convenient and alot more hot spots.

Bought the same black stone for our RV last year. Been very happy with it. Bought an adapter for a 20lb tank at Wally world. Still looking for a quick connect for RV.

I’ve had my Blackstone 17” portable griddle for 4 years. It’s spent countless 1000-5500 mile road trips with us, and gets used constantly on them. Just finished a 4200 mile road trip the day before yesterday that it saw a lot of use on as well.

We have a Blackstone at one of the stations & love it. Not sure how portable it would be because we donít need to move it but great griddle.

I need one that packs well for transport. A lot of my lease trips will be made in my wife's Grand Cherokee (22mpg vs 8-9mpg in my Excursion) and gear will be stacked on top of everything. I'd like to not have to worry about grease spots and the like.

I got the 17" Blackstone. It is great portable unit.
We also bought a bag to carry it when transporting.
I also made a top with corrugated plastic and gorilla tape. I was not going to spend the money for a metal top. I thought it was to expensive. I think it was around $100 for top. I would rather use that money and put it towards a bigger Blackstone that stays home.

Iíve got some black totes with yellow lids I use for all my camping gear when truck camping. My 17Ē Blackstone fits in it perfectly with tons of space for everything else.

Good to know. I use those for quite a bit of storage around the house.

We have the Blackstone you listed at the lease and it has cooked many good meals for us. I would feel 100% confident recommending it to anyone

Little bit different setup but for me it offered more flexibility bc I can fry in it, the RecTeq Matador. Its a portable wok or discada setup and had done really well. Been very happy with it so far and travels well. My only complaint is that the burner assembly and mount is a PIA to put together the first time. After that, it comes out in a single unit with one wing nut bolt. Anyway, may be something a little different for you to consider.

Well... I've been trying to hunt down a 22" Blackstone with absolutely no luck.

Apparently they are backordered/out of stock everywhere!

Check ace hardware in Porter off 1314. I got my 22" portable there about 1 month ago.

Blackstone is my vote. I have the 17" and is just enough for a small family. If I bought another I would definitely buy the 22".

I have two blackstones and love them both, they each have different uses, i use the 30 something inch at the house all the time and then i have a 17' with a side burner that gets to go places with me. As long as you season the griddle and keep it greased along the way you will be very happy.

I was able to try out my new 22Ē Blackstone this past weekend. I bought it to keep in the camper, but I liked it so much that Iíll be utilizing it home as well. Walmart in Woodlands and Conroe had several in stock a few days ago.

This might be apples to oranges, but I have the 22" 2 burner Blackstone, and it does not seem like it gets near as hot when I have it hooked to my campers QD. I run it off an adapter straight off a propane bottle and it works much better.

I have the two burner Pit Boss and got to cook side by side with the Blackstone this weekend. I preferred the Blackstone's rear drain system and heat control/evenness.
