Ok... I almost feel like this needs it's own thread... but I'll check here first.

Who all has a Blackstone or some other brand's gas griddle? How long have you had it? How do you like it? Did you cook on it for a couple weeks and then forget about it? Any non-breakfast or burgers meals that you would recommend?

I just got one this past weekend after resisting for over a year. I went with the 22" model so I could "comfortably" take it camping with me. I'm not big into griddle cooking yet, so I'm still learning about cooking with steam and separate cook domes. The flank steak I cooked yesterday came out great and bacon&eggs came out as expected.

I have begun to hallucinate that a small vampire child is waiting to ambush me around every corner, in every shadow.

Note to self, see if Rask has any spare Meth.

The vampire child was actually a midget rat God named Johnny who speaks with a thicc NY accent.

He tells me my vents could use cleaning, and as he hoisted himself back into the duct he turned and said "Don't be a fuckin' queer", then disappeared into the darkness.

Big umbrella over the smoker is helping... temps steady in the 230-240 range, need to add more coal.

I hear drums, drums in the deep.

They are coming . . .

We cannot get out . . . we cannot get out

Brisket internal temp at 147, rain fucked off.

Temp in cooking chamber was really high next to the firebox where the deflector plate sits.

Decided to move the meat to the far side where it is cooler.

Temps got stable enough I decided to nap for a couple hrs.

Rain came storming back, but the big ass golf umbrella I rigged up over the smoker really paid off.

I did need to go out and open up the air flow a bit, but temps otherwise kept chugging along.
