Sorry, I meant to include this link. https://blackstoneproducts.com/blogs...complete-guide

I clean it immediately after cooking while still hot. I have water in a squeeze bottle and spray some on, which really makes the residue easy to scrape off. Rinse and repeat until its clean. Then I put a light layer of oil on top and spread it with a wad of paper towel. Just have to be careful with the steam and hot oil.

While scraping steam it with water. You don't have to use alot and it won't hurt it your going to oil it anyway.

When I'm done cooking I scrape off the heavy stuff and then turn it up on high. When it's hot I squirt water on it and let it steam off. The boiling lifts the grease and remaining food. I wipe it off and repeat if needed. I turn the heat off and go eat. When I'm done I wipe a coat of oil on it with a piece of paper towel. When It's cool enough I flip the top over on my 17" and put it in the carry bag. On my 28" I do the same except that I put the hard cover on it and then the soft cover. Oiling the cooktop is the most important step to keep it from rusting between cookings.

Thanks for adding that. We do use the water while scraping it, I guess it's so much part of the routine I didn't even think to write it down. The steam really does make a difference, and like others also said, it's the oil at the end that is important.

Has anybody seen where to purchase the 17 inch griddle hood for REAR grease catch?

I see they can be bought as combo with a new griddle but the blackstone site only mentions the FRONT grease trap model HOOD ONLY for sale.

anybody know where to get the hood only?

Is this what you want?

Your append mentions a 17" griddle, but I think the only griddle with a rear grease trap is 22" unless you have a model I can't find. If it is 22" then this might be what you need.

Cover

Im thinking of ordering one of these covers. I purchased a custom spa cover and they did a great job. I wonder if anyone has ordered one for their Blackstone?

Seems to be a work around to use that cover on the rear grease trap. look here:

They sure are proud of the 22" cover. For that price I can buy the 22" grill, the cover, and a table.

Thats what I did when looking. By the time you add. The stand, grill, and cover priced bought individually you will pay much more than buying the combo.

Weve had our 22 with cover for almost a year now and while we like the way it cooks Im not fond of the cleanup process or its weight. I think were going to sell it and buy the smaller 17 since its normally only used for my wife and I. At least I can lose some of the weight.

Hahaha griddle goes on the back seat of the truck! The rest goes in the truck bed. Having a seasonal site still means a ton of stuff to bring home end of the season

So how does the griddle hold up in damp rainy weather? Just seems like it could rust from exposure?

Mines coming up on 2 years old. I've got a couple of small rusty spots on the inside bottom under the burners. Griddle surface is rust free, I seasoned both side. The little bit of rust is about the same as what happened on my conventional grill.


My 22" is light enough that I usually move it in my garage if at home, when traveling, it lives in the back of my truck if not setup and in use. I have put a cheap tarp over it when at home if it's going to rain and I'm too lazy to move it.
