Christmas presents 🎁 to Ollie

Recommended Posts

My wife and I were at Gander outdoor the other day. They were having a 25% off everything in the store.

we were looking to replace our 15 yr old Weber Q grill.  Love that grill. I saw the Black Stone 17in griddle. We decided to give it a try. Cost was about $67.00 of course we had to get the griddle kit and and the carrying case. Total a little over $100,00 .Trying it, after a very easy seasoning process,  I cooked so far 20 wings, sausage peppers and onions, and a full breakfast eggs, bacon, sausage and hash browns, things you can’t do with the Webber. I am happy with the results. Easy clean up and stores nice with the carrying case The only negative, a lot of grease/oil to clean up. It should get better with more experience using it.   Looks like we may semi retire our Webber.

We got the 22-inch double-burner Blackstone Griddle - it is a heavy and a bit overkill (with 2-burners you can cook breakfast for the entire campground).  The 17-inch single burner, still a bit heavy, is definitely a better choice.  Either way, Blackstone griddle is a versatile cooking machine.  We also got the hookup hose for our Oliver propane connections - no need to rely on those propane camp bottles, although we still use them from time to time.  And, we got the Blackstone table stand ($89) for easy leveling and eliminate the need for a portable cook table.  Although expensive, and heavy, the Blackstone stand makes the Blackstone experience better.  One last suggestion, using small disposable aluminum pans (or aluminum foil) to line your grease/oil catch trap makes cleanup easier.  You may want to visit the Blackstone website to checkout options for your new griddle.

I am probably going to get the 17-inch one.  But, I bought a Cobb grill and also a wok for it.  I think I am going to REALLY enjoy this.

Nice griddle, Landrover. Nan, how do you like the Cobb wok? I  use my wok pan a lot at home.

Our Ollie's Christmas gift arrived yesterday. 2 200 watt panels, to double the output of our existing twin 100s. Excited for that.

Next year, maybe a Lagun table , if I can figure out a good mount place in the small dinette. I'd love to be able to raise the table to counter height when I am using the little table as a prep space, or dish drying space. 🙂

I’ll check out the Blackstone the next time I’m camping shopping.  I keep waiting for my Weber Q to wear out and it looks like I’ve got a long wait!

I just received the wok yesterday, so have not used it.  I only got the Cobb a short time ago, too.  I did buy the cook book for the Cobb, but I am not a fancy cook so do not think I will be using these receipts...lol

We bought a 22" Blackstone before we picked up our Ollie at the end of August. We then went for a 2 month shakedown trip up & down the Blue Ridge Parkway with a stop in Hotlanta for our annual physicals en route home to Pensacola. During the trip we used the grill extensively. There is nothing better than bacon in the morning, plus I have always wanted to work the griddle at a Waffle House. We probably ate more bacon, burgers, grilled sausage, etc during the 7 weeks prior to Hotlanta than last couple of years. The result was a 20 point increase in my cholesterol as my doctor not so subtly pointed out. Soo.... for Christmas we got Ollie a new 3qt Instant Pot last week. It makes great steel-cut oatmeal, but I bet it makes lousy camp toast. 😁
