Well when i am at the refinery.. And it is running good i get bored so thought i would post a few griddle cooks... Now mine aren't pretty like Jens... Shagdog... And SSV ... But they taste good


Made some salmon crochets the other day.. I use double Q because my mamma did....

Food looks outstanding. Catfish looks crazy good.
Actually everything does. But that catfish has me pondering things really hard.

I have a question, Does cooking with the blackstone effect your "lifestyle changes"? Can you cook decently health foods with it? Thinkin about going on a slight life style change on the things I eat, but it would be nice to know how to use the blackstone while changing the way you eat and such. I'm the guy that would always batter catfish :D

I am from Alabama.. So we ate fried everything ... The griddle has been a great asset... Once seasoned i use a little olive oil... That is it.... We cook all our veggies on it... And meats also.... It is working for me... And it is easy... My doctors were very happy.... Diets don't work for me.. This change came about of my on doing.... Just wanted some changes.... It is an AWesome tool..

That's good to know! I just got my offset smoker, then everyone started bragging about these blackstones. Considering changing the types of food I eat for once. I eat a lot of mac and cheese and fried stuff, on top of take out haha. If i purchase this griddle I do plan on making it my kitchen! I see no reason to cook on anything else unless it was the smoker or the oven it seems you can cook everything on it!

Edit: I thought I read the blackstone was great for traveling, does it fold up or anything for transportation?

I'm getting to be 30 years old. Its time for a little change in how i cook food and eat it as well. In less than 2 days I'm buying one. no question about it. I just wanted to see how versatile this was on the level of changing your cooking/eating habits

Hmm, really? I was under the impression It folded up nicely for camping and what not. Honestly I haven't seen it folded or anything. Just something I've read else where. I'm going with the 36" I'm sure. Now I have to find a place to get one. seems like ordering online is shady due to shipping. There's not a store here in WV that has them in stock!

Yeah, I'm not that concerned with shipping. Just like everything else there is a small group of people that has issues. cheapest I've found online so far is $269.00 on ebay (selling from target), and amazon. If there's anyone else considering buying one, anyone see it for cheaper online?

It does fold up, and you can get a separate "carrying case" for the griddle. The griddle itself weighs in at about 50 lbs, I'm not sure what the rest of it weighs. I'll be taking mine on a camp out in the next couple of weeks, so I'm about to find out how that works.

KC

Just googled it, says that shipping weight for the whole thing is 120 lbs, so you've got the griddle itself at 50 lbs and the base unit must be around 70 lbs, sounds about right to me.

That's some fine looking grub for sure. You do look like you are getting back close to fight weight. When you hit your target, let me know and I will ride up and we will put the gloves on:boxing::boxing::boxing: You know I'm kidding, I'm far to fat to be boxing. Again, great looking grub and congradulations on the weight loss my friend.

This thing will eat through propane if using for extended times. I use one for my mobile food business it works awesome gets hot cooks evenly. If you are folding it for transport be sure to take the cook top off first. I use mine so much that I don't food it up. The only complaint I had was the grease hole because of the taper the grease can run back to this little nipple underneath and drip on the ground. I welded a piece of square tube to it and it works great.
