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)

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.

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.

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
