      Anyone ever hear of the Royal Gourmet® Pro 6-Burner Gas Griddle GB6000? It looks like the Blackstone but has 6 burners instead of 4 and it is quite a bit longer at 44 inches giving a total of 860 square inches. A lot of other specs look similar. It's also better looking IMO, more in line with the Blackstone stainless model.
      Any guys who have one or a griddle want to weigh in on the design choices?
      I've been looking at the Blackstone or Camp Chef for a while but can't decide and now there is another contender :(

      Blackstone 36" griddle $237 on walmart.com today (3/27/2017).  Is this a good price?

      Just picked up a griddle at Walmart thanks to Mewantkj that sent me a link about them being discounted 50 percent off. I seasoned with flax oil first three times, crispbee puck twice, then used onions, potatoes and salt before I threw on some bacon bread for a blt. This will be handy when doing taco parties or big breakfasts. Thanks for looking.

      Fitting A Reversible Cast Iron Grill/Griddle in the Blackstone Oven

      I wanted to do a cook on the Blackstone Patio Oven that would best be done on a cast iron grill/griddle.  Pulled out my Academy Sports 14 inch reversible round grill/griddle and checked the fit.  While the round part is indeed 14 inches and an easy fit,  the ear tabs on either side of the griddle cause the overall dimension to extend a bit beyond 17 inches.  Too wide for setting it on the Blackstone turn table and having it rotate without hitting the interior metal shroud. Need to be more like 16 inches.

      This is the reversible cast iron grill/griddle I am referring too.  An excellent unit for you Kamado and now the Blackstone – especially for the price.  


      So we can fix this situation – that is why we have power tools.  Grunt. Grunt.    A bit of work with a bi-metal blade in the reciprocating saw and some finish dressing work with the air tool die grinder and all is good.  The overall dimensions on are now just under 16 inches and full clearance is obtained in the Blackstone.  And we still have some useful  lifting tabs left.  A few photos shows it all….

      A bit too wide – that is a 16 inch pizza pan underneath.  The Blackstone stone is diameter is about 16 3/8 inches.  A bit of blue painters tape marks the demarcation point and shows what we need to remove.  That is the lower stone from the Blackstone in the next photo.

      Time to put the tools to work and check the resulting fit.

      Now, let’s put it into action for dinner.

      Cook on!
