Blackstone x2. Both are the old style with the grease rail up front but a pleasure to cook on.

Used my Sunday for Father’s Day, burgers on charcoal grill, veggies on gas grill and hasbrowns on Blackstone griddle .

Have used it to blacken tuna/salmon and have also done some steaks on it as well
Google smash burgers, you'll never grill them again!

I think they have improved on later models. To be honest griddles are a PITA to me. If you leave it outside (covered or not) it will rust. I used everything recommended to lessen the rusting but it still rusts enough between use to be a PITA to clean.
Put oil on the griddle and cover, should not rust.

Turn the heat up til it smokes and make sure there’s oil on the grill. Your fish should not stick if it’s hot enough.

I never thought I’d say this but griddle burgers are better than any I’ve cooked on the egg.

I did have it a little low on the temp so that was probably the reason it stuck. I had 4 coats of oil from seasoning it and added another coat once I was done cooking last night

We have had our blackstone for a year and love it. Seasoning it and keeping it seasoned are key! I have also bought a hood and a cover. They are a pain in the ass to keep clean, and if you use it a lot you tube ways to re finish it. I have done it once with a dewalt palm sander, very messy but made it brand new again. I think it cooks some foods better than a grill for sure! I f you get one you will love it, just buy a ton of paper towels! You will burn through a bunch. A scrapper is also a nice tool to own as well, and can be found cheap at Walmart.

I almost got the blackstone, but buying online cheap wasn't sure I'd get the rear drain, so I got a BlueRhino on sale at lowes. Buy lots of paper towels and have a trash can nearby.

Seems to me they should put that one as featured. Looking at the 2 below, the BS is better than the cheap one but not as good as the expensive one.

I've had my BS for 2 years now. Followed the seasoning procedure (about half or more of a tank of propane) and I'm right on the ocean with it in RI and no rust at all. I think the key is just to keep oil on it.

What's with the paper towels?

Blackstone is the way to go. The more you use it, the better it gets. A few tricks:

buy cheap scrapers
buy the big metal spatuals
buy a magnetic paper towel older for the shelf
buy or make the little grease drip grease drip pan ramp (only complaint I have about Blackstone, if not grease sometimes runs down the leg)
buy clear condiment bottle and fill with oil

to keep clean after some rust may get to it I use a grilling stone, works awesome.


By far far the best grill I’ve bought. Very universal.





few notes about the pics

i usually will buy disposable aluminum pans and just out everything in there: veggies, steak, chorizo etc. easy for transport inside. Also buy a school lunch tray like plastic tray. I used that to carry stuff in and out and works like a charm.

Here are some Entrana churrasco from last night

Brother has the Blue Rhino Razor. Easy to set up and transport if you need to. Side shelves fold over the griddle to form a cover. Nice looking, cooks great and the grease hole is (to me) better than the Blackstone.

Mine also drains out the back. Think that is the only way they make them now

Also, get the little puck surface thermometers. I got 3 from amazon. It helps setting zones for cooking/searing/warming and also cooking at the right temp.

I now have the 17" blackstone. It replaced the 28" inch blackstone. The 28" blackstone we had was just to big for us- but when we have more people in our house, we used it all the time. the 17" is fine for 2 or maybe 3 people.

If anyone wants to grab my 28" Blackstone- its just the Griddle, and the griddle top- no frame as we had it installed as part of an outdoor cooking area, let me know. Local pick up in Pompano Beach or Ft. Lauderdale. I'll put it in the "for sale" section.

Thanks. You answered my question. Have the 22” and 90% of time it is just the 2 of us. Looked at the 28” & 36” but in all honesty not sure really need that . I think I am going to get the bulk propane tank kit to keep from having to use the small bottles all the time

They also have the inserts for the grease tray that make cleanup a breeze.

don't get me wrong, we used the 28" a lot and allowed us to do a lot of different things, But we changed our patio around and the new cooking/grill area was a bit tight for the 28" Blackstone, so we picked up the smaller one so I could still have some counter space to put stuff.

You can get the propane adapter to run the small grill off a 20lb tank. I got mine from Amazon for like $11. It's called a propane converter adapter.
