I looked at the Davey Crocket but declined when I learned it weighed 68 pounds versus 21 for Blackstone and calls for another additional fuel to carry. Propane is only fuel necessary for small Weber and Blackstone. Cleanup is much simpler with the Blackstone. To each his own.

If you can't decide between a grille and a griddle, check out the Blackstone Tailgater; it has both!

We have a Weber Q. On one road trip we took in between trailers I took it with us to cook dinner on at the campground cabin. Discovered I could fit a small skillet on top and made bacon and eggs for breakfast the 1st morning. Took longer on the bacon but it worked.

I bake in my grille, all it take is a pizza stone. If one diffuses the heat properly, it can do everything. Bacon on a $.99 cent store foil cookie sheet. Just takes some experimenting and I know your existing equipment can do what you want.

Just plop a Lodge 12" griddle or any skillet on it and have at it. You don't have to have any special or unitasker cooker.

I agree the Weber baby Q can cook about any meal. It also meets your small 1 pound propane bottle requirement. Its all in how you use it. Good luck with whatever you decide.

If you get a Blackstone, skip the 17 inch and go directly to the 22 inch.

The 17 works fine, but the 22 inch has 2 knobs and 2 burners, so you can cook 2 things at different temperatures.

You can cook eggs on one side, for example, and pancakes on the other side.

Plus, with the 22 inch, the grill surface gets up to temp pretty much 99.5% all over the grill, giving you more consistent heat and thus cooking. The 17 can't do that, you will have cold spots in areas, which will screw up your cooking. Unless you're a caveman and will eat anything anyway it's prepared.

Trust me on this. Get the 22 inch.

Just slightly off topic but we use a Geo. Foreman grill; at home and on the road when we `grill' which is rare.

My 22 has huge swings in temp. In fact it took a map gas torch to properly season it. The corners just never get hot even with both burners cranked full blast for 30 mins.

Thanks for the great info. I am going to get the 17" Blackstone and keep my Weber for steaks, chops and burgers. Rich
