What are you going to use the cast iron griddle for? Inside or exterior cooking?
Clean-up after cooking fish or steaks is not that bad if your cast iron is seasoned. When cooking over fire you will get some smoke on the underside. On the cooking side, I use a Lodge bristle brush and hot water to remove any particles, then wipe down with a paper towel and a few drops of oil. On the bottom I just use an oiled paper towel to remove smoke residue.
I have a small one with a bail I use on my BGE, another bail model that is dedicated for the stove and a larger one that I'll use on both. The nice thing about cast iron is that you don't really need a hot fire to cook on...
I have a square Lodge griddle that is flat on one side and ribbed on the other, and I either use my wok ring when using it, or just set it on the regular cooking grate.
