FedEx Delivery today!

Our new Blackstone 17" Griddle just arrived and I can't wait to try it out! Don't think I can wait until April so I may have to season it and set it up and use it out in the gazebo until camping weather begins

I've seen the raves about it for a couple years now, but resisted the thought of a griddle. However after a bunch more reading, YouTube videos, etc, we decided to get one. Now I just hope it's even half as good as people say.

Camping World Online has a sale for $79 which was really good compared to either Amazon or Walmart for the 17" we wanted so we ordered it last weekend.

I also got the Low Pressure adapter and hose for the camper propane and have the cover/carrying bag on order.

When done seasoning, the first thing you need to cook on it is... BACON

Safe and happy travels.

A good way to season the 17". Coat both sides with your oil of choice then toss it in your S&B's oven. Seasoning the backside will help control rust.
It's not a bad idea to run a couple of seasoning cycles before use (coat, heat up, let cool, repeat).

Thanks!
When I ordered the carrying bag and cover, I also ordered a jar of Blackstone Seasoning stuff that was suggested during checkout. In the past for cast iron, I just used plain oil, but I thought I'd give this stuff a try. Hopefully it wasn't a waste of money.

We have a Blackstone 17 also but I noticed the one we have is different from your's are is called Adventure Ready and has the grease trap in the rear. Not sure if there are any other differences.

From what I understand, the difference is just the grease trap which of course also means where the griddle grease opening is and the front on mine being stainless steel instead of painted black. Specs are the same though.

My dear sweet loving wife got me the 22Ē for my birthday last year. I now have the 36Ē pro series in addition to it. I never woulda thought a ribeye would turn out so well. And pizza. And breakfast. And sweet Italian sausage and onions. And hamburgers. And hotdogs. And fried rice. (Actually I pretty much knew the fried rice would turn out well.) Iím threatening to do oysters but havenít tried them yet. Your mileage may vary. Enjoy!
Oh, by the way. For anyone who wants to know the best size to get, you can cook just about anything on any size griddle.

Fried rice was one of the things I thought of. We had a great Japanese restaurant here and the fried rice they do on the hibachi griddle at the table was always my favorite fried rice anywhere. The steaks they cook there are mouthwatering also. They sear the steak, cook it for a bit and then slice it up into bitesize pieces for the final cooking.

On a side note, The restaurant itself does the at table hibachi cooking like other places, but this particular one is a beautiful and fascinating place. It was a 16th century farmhouse in Japan that they took apart, shipped over here and reassembled back in the 70's. It has no nails or steel in the original structure. All pegs and ropes. We even had or wedding pictures taken on the grounds there 30 years ago.
