i can get the blackstone 28 for $152 shipped from groupon. can you tell me if its the h shaped burners please. ive been reading a lot on these things and the full sized is too big for my needs. the 28 maybe in the past has round shaped burners which i dont want. help me before they run out of these on groupon.

picture of the burners would be icing on the cake

Just bought the 28. Yes it has dual H burners. I would love to go get you a pic but it rained all afternoon and i dont feel like dealing with the mess. Youll have to take my word for it.

Edit: oh yea nice chili dog

My 28" has two stainless H-Burners. I also purchased from groupon. Buy 2-3 pounds of cheap bacon and 3-4 large sweet onions. You will be seasoned in 20-30 minutes max. I wiped my griddle top with a 50/50 mixture of white vinegar and club soda. Turned it on and seasoned it.

I know you don't give it much time to sour or get nasty outside but any advice on cleaning after cooks?

I pour a cup of water to steam it after cooking. Wipe it down and its ready for next time.

I turn it up- run it till it smokes- wipe it off- and spray oil really well and allow to cool. I place a glass vase in the center of the griddle and cover with a waterproof cover and cover that with Blackstones weather resistant cover. It's all pretty loose to allow airflow. If something is really gunked I use a dual stainless brush to loosen.

When I am ready to cook- I heat till its smoking wipe it down, and use Bacon or lard- sometimes Star olive oil or organic coconut oil to cook with.

It's really simple and a helluva lot quicker than pots and pans in the kitchen.

The vase and waterproof under cover were the bride's idea.

ordered

do you find this uses a lot of propane with getting it to temp and then cleaning?

im replacing my camp chef stove which i love for the versatility. but it just uses too much propane. it will get everything up to temp VERY FAST but it uses up a tank fast.

i try to be frugal with the fuel but those burners require too much even if i want to just simmer.

i wanted something more easy on the propane and after all the reading i settled on the 28 blackstone.

It's a mizer. Guessing my tank was 1/3 full when Installed. Probably have done 30-40 cooks. Still going tonight. I'd think it has to be getting Low.

i should get mine from groupon in like 7 days

should i also get this?

http://www.lowes.com/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10151&catalogId=10051&productId=50271955&cId=detail

i dont plan to buy the blackstone cover. i think ill just buy a $5 rain tarp for it. i will keep it in the garage and just wheel it out close to the house when in use.

man i hope i end up using this thing much more than using cast iron in the kitchen. first thing im gonna make is probably some milanesa steaks

edit to add. i forgot to ask if this includes the propane adapter and hose for a 20 pound tank. already ordered anyway, oh well
