OK, I have a 17 inch already, but getting it out to use it at home is a pain, so I only have once or twice. I have a screened in back porch so I cannot grill as the smoke is too much even with a gas grill, and I never liked cooking directly over a LP flame.

So after a online check I found that a Walmart about 30 miles from the house had two in stock. Several other closer stores were Out of Stock.

I won't comment on the area where this store is located (there really are some nice housing areas not far away) but they only have one entrance open, and lots of police and security on duty both in and out of the store. Anyhow, I found them rather quickly in the garden area, there were actually three of them.

When you unpack it, you will find one major issue, the gas hose will probably be badly kinked. To make it fit in the box, it was folded over on itself and I may have to replace the hose and regulator if it proves to be a problem.

Beyond the hose, I found it to be well made and of good quality and all of the pieces fit together properly. The wheels are actual rubber or polyurethane; solid, not thin, hollow plastic like I expected.

Assembly is easy but time consuming. You need a table to set it upside down on, and opening the package with the hardware is difficult without scattering parts, so open the hardware on a towel spread out to keep stuff from getting away. Some of the screws are pre-locktited (is that a word?) and for assembly you will need a #3 phillips, as a #2 will tear up the screw heads. You will also need a 10, 14 and 17 mm combination wrenches to tighten the wheels and the few nuts there are.

I already have flax seed oil so I will use that to season with, and I have throw away grease cups from the 17 inch model so I am set there.

Flax seed oil has a rather high flash point and does OK for seasoning. I did my 17 inch griddle in the oven in the house, the way Cowboy Kent Rollins (Cowboy Cooking) recommends doing cast iron.

Not quite as good of a deal as the $99.00 model . But this model is smaller , portable, and better for RV use.
No Stand or hood but it comes with a bag.
$129.00 not a bad price.

Fired it up today and on round 4 of seasoning. Wish I could backtrack to round 1.

Blackstone website and blackstone videos contradict each other. I would have done things differently if I got all the info first and developed my own technique.

The center gets to 700F. I'm not a steak guy but doesnt Ruth's Chris advertise as cooking at 800F?

I love my 17" blackstone....

We take it every where with us. It was on sale for $75.00 at the time and I had a $25.00 gift card so it was a no brainer for me. It came with a cover and a carry bag.

I season it every couple of trips, but cook bacon on it every trip so that assists in the seasoning .

Was just in Walmart last night looking at bacon. Its amazing the price people pay for fat. Many choices were out of stock. Everything had color and smoke flavor added. Gonna make a Costco run. They used to sell the nitrate free bacon but that disappeared from our local Costco a couple years ago.

Honestly man dont think I have ever actually bought bacon in my life. Raw bacon. My girlfriend cooks it weekly but me personally would never pay that much for it.
Probably change now that I have the griddle. Was excited yesterday to buy some at Walmart but it was slim pickins.

Was just thinking I should ask here. Where do you buy your favorite bacon and what brand do you like.

Some of you will live in areas where awesome cuts of meat are superior to what I can find.

We do have stator brothers and they have always been known for their meats. I pretty much live off pork loin and chicken breast. Taste good and 2 bucks a pound.
