Don’t know if this has been brought up before but has anyone used a Blackstone griddle while camping. My son has one at home and he raves about it, making breakfast, lunch and dinner on it. Uses propane to run it and they even have a table top model that they advertise for camping. Read a lot of good reviews but none from campers. Just curious if anyone has experience with one, good or bad. Thanks for any replies.

I have the 17" for the trailer. I have the Walmart (only) 22" with griddle, metal cover and stand ($147) for home. Love them both. If I knew what I do now I would have bought the 22" for the trailer and the 36" for home. I could get rid of my BBQ and never miss it. We cook chinese, fajitas, burgers, steaks, pizza on a stone, complete breakfast etc.

I have the 36" at home. I've never used it camping. We use it to cook hibachi style Japanese on a lot.

The 17" is intriguing for camping, but I'm not sure how easy it would be to convert it from 1 lb bottles to hook up to the grill's quick connect on the trailer. I'm afraid the 1 lb bottles would drive me mad.

Got the 28" for home and found it to be everything I had hoped, love it. I then decided to get the 17" table top model for the MH and am just as happy with it as well. We already carry a small table with us and the small propane bottles seem to last pretty well. Jim.

I've got the 17", that I use at home, and take it camping. Works great. I bought it right before the 22" came out, and if I'd known it was coming out I would have waited and bought it.

Personally, I think they are not worth the extra weight. A cheapo electric griddle weighs far less. They aren't always as good as distributing heat evenly, but we have some fine pancakes and bacon from ours on every camping trip. To each their own.

The Blackstone is a nice griddle. If that's your preferred method of cooking, then you make the choice to carry it.

We have the same. We purchased the 17 long before the 22 came out. I would start with the 22 if I didn't have one. It is just the right size for us.

I have the 17" for trailer and the 22" at home. Both have the metal covers.

To fit a metal cover to the Walmart 17" rear grease trap model, simply add 1" spacers and longer bolts to move the cover rearward. I found the best price for a 17" cover to be directly from Blackstone. The Royal Gourmet 21" gas grill bag works perfectly for this setup and holds 2 bottles. If you flip the top and haul the griddle that way, the aluminum pop rivets wear on the cooking surface making an unhealthy mess, I replaced them with 5/32" stainless steel rivets.

A conversion kit is available to easily connect to an RV. Do some searching for better prices and more options.

We just bought a plain old lodge griddle and put it on our baby Q. Works for us!
