I called my local store in NorCal to see if they had them and if they would ship to SoCal. They were out, and expect more on Jun 18th.

They had 325 of them when I bought mine 2 weeks ago. RDP helping the economy get back on track one griddle at a time. LOL.

I was invited by some friends for their inaugural "Blackstone Grill" dinner night last week. OMG! The veggies alone were amazing. They have the air fryer version and the tots were super good, love having them without the extra oil! That, and now after reading this, I want one. Problem is, Its just me, sometimes my boys. I have the small Treager and I haven't used it in a year... So what size? The 28"?

Any smaller than a 22" (tabletop) or 28" (has it's own legs), and you will fill cramped when you cook on it. If they are too small, your food wants to fall off. use it. They do make a 22" table top version that might be nice for a start.

here's another 50$ you need to spend 😁

Thanks but this one's a bit less (and free shipping too) and it appears to be from Blackstone...

So I bought the 17" for the toyhauler and have been trying it out. Works good with the exception of it's not really flat, kind of domed in the middle and the edges don't get as hot. Not a problem cooking meat but if you cook a flat omelet or something watery it runs off towards the cooler edges. 🤷‍♂️

Mine was supposed to be here on the 18th. Got the alert that it is delayed, and I will be notified when it ships. The cover order already has been canceled, stated that it is undeliverable. Hope to hear something soon.

I really liked the idea of a flattop grill.
Wife even wanted one. Looked at all the different brands, found one the wife liked. Ended up cooking breakfast with cast iron on the bbq grill. With a dozen or more pieces of cast iron, and been using them for years, I don't think I need this. How do you bake Apple pie without cast iron?
Carry on...

when I look on Ace they don't even have the same model with the lid listed anymore, or am I just missing it? Damn I'm kicking myself for not grabbing one. At $299 it was a hell of a deal compared to the walmart deal for $274 and no lid considering the 36" hard cover is 80 bucks

They're not the same as the 36" Griddle on sale at ACE as they don't have the hinged cover/lid (and maybe the beer opener).
Correct. But it is cheaper so if the lid was ordered later, it would be about the same price overall.

I saw that yesterday on the website. I called my local store, he said they will get more on June 18th. I assume they will go back on the website when they have them in stock. Assume. LOL

I cook in cast iron almost exclusively before I had the flat top.

The griddle seems much more convenient, and faster / easier to clean. I will still use cast iron for baking in. The deserts in a dutch over are off the charts.

I bought the 36" version off amazon the end of march.

It showed up missing the bolts,knobs and drip pan. Registered the grill on the blackstone website and called customer service in utah. They were really nice and send me the needed parts except when they showed there was no drip pan even though it was listed on the packing slip...lol

Called my girl back and she was super cool sent me a drip pan and also due to the mistakes sent me the breakfast package for free.

Another great cooking tool we have done some great meals including Teppanyaki for a crowd. Good times

That can be ordered separate. They have them on Amazon but they seem a bit pricier than I remembered seeing before.

Thanks for the input. Maybe I got a wonky one. I'll give them a call and ask.

I checked this out at Walmart today. Pretty much the same deal Ace had except the cover is different and no bottle opener...

I was telling my brother about me ordering one of these units. Yesterday he sends me this picture.

He picked everything up at Lowes. I kind of wish that I would have gone this route vs Amazon. I did get confirmation that the griddle will be delivered today though. Blackstone did ship my scour pads and natural gas kit. Might be up and running by this weekend.

I stand corrected he bought at Wal-Mart.

Finally got the cover I ordered on Amazon...

This works on Blackstone Griddles with and without the hinged Lid. It comes with a plastic support pole you use if your Griddle doesn't have a Lid.

Unicook makes the best BBQ covers I've seen - got one for the grill too.

Was $25.99 but it's out of stock now.

I'm surprised Blackstone does not show the 36" all stainless version on their site anymore

I noticed cabela's has a 36" model with their name on it. I don't know who makes it for them. I was going to post a link here but they sold out before I got home. I bought my grill two Septembers ago. great for the river. one tip I think i've shared before in a similar thread was that the scraper that comes in the kit is great for burning your knuckles. get a nice stout one with a loooonger handle. your knuckles will thank you. long tongs don't suck either
