I have a 17 inch. I clean it hot with water and scraper, throw out the aluminum insert for the grease cup and wipe it down, when cool. I cover it with wax paper and have a piece of double wall cardboard cut from a box that is a snug fit and put it in on top of the wax paper, flip the top over onto the base like you are expected to and I have a plastic container that is about the right height and somewhat larger. I keep the accessories in the container. Container was surplus from an auto factory where a specific part was put in it, multiples in cardboard divider inserts, I threw the dividers. All goes in the back of the truck (with LEER topper). Don't actually get to use it much because my travel buddy and his wife have one and they usually do all the cooking.

I clean my 22" with water and flip it over so the cooking surface is facing the burners, keeps them and everything else in the passthrough clean. No carrying bag for me, that's too much like work =)

A bag allows you to store stuff on top of the griddle. It also allows you to store the blacksone vertically.
Lastly a bag contains any smells which may attract the mice and other critters in the area.

I agree. I have never had a griddle for use at home, why would I carry one in my RV?
My thoughts exactly...until I got one for my birthday. If you don't cook, then it's a waste of money, but if you like to cook and like deep flavors, then the griddle is a great option. We liked it so much at home that we got one to travel with. But, then again, we travel with a portable smoker too. [emoticon]

What did we used to do before these came out? I can't imagine not having one.

We've had quite an evolution of smokers in our family:

* Electric kettle smoker: Fun, but useless.

* Medium sized Traeger. Loved it, but carelessly burned it to a crisp on my birthday a few years ago when my wife distracted me with a surprise party. My fault, but she gets the assist.

* Green Mountain Grill's Davy Crockett: The day after my ill-fated birthday conflagration, I took the Barbecues Galore gift card my mom gave me and tried to shop for a bigger/better replacement Traeger. They don't sell Traegers, but they had this cute little GMG travel smoker. I bought it and instantly fell in love with it. Dragged it around with us to 19 states within a few months and decided that I was a convert to the brand.

* Resurrected Traeger: I got the parts to fix it, because the little Davy Crockett wasn't big enough.

* GMG Jim Bowie: The following birthday, my wife told me to make a big wish and ask for anything I wanted. I told her I've been drooling over the behemoth Jim Bowie, so she surprised me and got it. Best gift ever. I've never stopped thanking her.

The Davy Crocket lives permanently in our RV and only comes home if we're having a huge cook. The resurrected Traeger is the backup unit at home. Being able to smoke two different foods at two different temps on two smokers is pretty much why the terrorists hate us so much.

Sorry for the hijack. This thread made me hungry.

It should be a grease coating to protect the top from rust. I have the 22" black stone. The griddle top flips over, I place the cover on that, then place in the blackstone griddle carrying bag.
