    I cooked some ribeyes on my Blackstone and they came out great.

    Did you season the griddle before using it?

    Yeah you need to season them and they also need to be cleaned before seasoning they come with some sort of anti rust coating on them for shipping

    Sure did. I am not used to the grill yet and probably had it turned up too high.

    I think that you are correct. You had it turned up too high. I cook with mine on the lowest setting and so far have not burned anything

    I don’t own a griddle but this is what I’d be cooking on it. Breakfast!

    I do like to cook on a little electric griddle inside. Anyone else do this? Always fire it up if I’m making pancakes.

    Purchased a Recteq grill last year, purchased the griddle for it, best grill i have ever owned. The griddle options makes it great without being stuck with just the grill option. These pellet grills are second to none, can put on the meat, take off to the woods hunting and keep tabs on it with the app on my phone and have it done when I get back home and always perfect, never over or under cooked.

    I have a Big Green Egg & a Blackstone 36" griddle. I like them both equally well; I just use them for different things.
    The Egg I use primarily as a smoker, although I will cook steaks, chops, & straps on it.
    For burgers, tacos, grilled vegetables, fish, fajitas, & stir fry I use the Blackstone.
    Different tools for different jobs.

    Hey folks didn’t want to start a whole new thread. I need to season my Blackstone adventure for the first time. It’s been sitting in my living room since Christmas and having hopes on using it tomorrow down on the creek. I have watched several YouTube videos of ppl using Crisco or vegetable oil or the special Blackstone brand. Use onions-don’t use onion Etc

    I just figured I’d ask on here the ones that have done it. what did you use and how many times did you repeat the process?

    I ran bacon grease on mine. Keep wiping down and running it high. Turn off and wipe off again when cool

  12. Wipe it down with canola or vegetable oil and try and wipe most of the oil off so there’s just a very light coat remaining. Turn burners on and let her rip til you see a little smoke, cool and repeat. After that it takes cooking and use. Cooking bacon seems to really pack the season on.

    I’ve enjoyed this post. Bought a pellet grill a couple months ago amd would like a griddle to compliment it. Glad this thread got started, has given me insight in to the different foods and ways to cook it on the griddle

    Fried rice is another great thing to make on the griddle. Smash burgers are magic on that thing.
