Default Blackstone

Going to buy a 36 inch Blackstone. Does anyone know what the difference if any is between the standard and professional is besides the enclosed base?

I've got a stainless Blackstone and buddy bought a Camp Chef. I like his better, but no issues with my Blackstone. The Camp Chef just seems a little better built.

I bought the 36" Blackstone a few months ago. No idea or ever heard of a Camp Chef. I enjoy mine. Great breakfast on it. Burgers are hard to beat as well. Have done stir fry and blackened fish/shrimp for tacos. Been great. Seems well built.

Love my blackstone. Have had it since December 2018 and no complaints. Cook on it 1-2 times per week and seems to just get better each time.

Not sure about the differences you’re asking about but I have the stainless steel front and rear grease trap (that’s a must have)

Between the 2 - reviews I am leaning way toward the Camp Chef.

For the price difference it better be amazing!

I have the blackstone at the camp and I freaking love the thing. No complaints. Will probably get one for the house too.

I can speak for the CC cast iron products but not the griddle. No issues with the irons.

going with the BS for that price difference. Picking one up today and hope to have it seasoned tonight so I can cook for tuna steaks tomorrow

I have a camp chef and mine came down to the grease trap system. Blackstone was not near as good at the time.
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.
back at it likes this.

If not mistaken it's a $50 difference for the 36" model.

Could be wrong but that's what I recall.

I have a 22” one that we take when we camp which is only about 1 time year but I keep in handy and will use it from time to time.

Really like it and have looked at getting a 36” one but already have Weber nat gas grill, and Weber charcoal grill on my lower deck. Not sure how much I would actually use it .

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
