Ever wonder why Griddle Cooking is the newest outdoor cooking craze? Why are some folks ditching the charcoal grill and going all the way with flat tops? What is so great about them anyway? Well, a griddle is suitable for every meal - breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But there are so many other reasons you should check it out.
#1 Cook Every Meal
The day’s just starting. Maybe you go for a jog, maybe you decide to take your time and enjoy some family time before work... Time for breakfast! And you can’t spell breakfast without bacon, eggs, and pancakes. The griddle cooks them up, and these tools help out a bunch
. Then comes lunch. How about some burgers, hot dogs, or even sliders?
Or cook up some wraps, like fajitas, quesadillas or tacos
. And it doesn’t stop there - you can have fish, rice, or even pizza. On a griddle the choices for lunch are infinite. And seal the deal with an epic dinner. Anything goes: steak, seafood, pasta, hash browns, chicken or even corn on the cob. Cook up large portions, and you even have leftovers for the whole family the next day! Oh, and why not have some dessert
#2 Seared and Locked-In Flavor
Searing is a technique used for centuries. The Aztecs loved searing tortillas on clay flat tops
, and even the Scots seared up their scones. It’s a cooking method that forms a delicious crust on the surface. Think of that browned steak - crispy, charred, and toasty. That’s what searing does, and it’s delicious. Chefs call it the Maillard Reaction
. Have you ever been to a five-star steakhouse? Steakhouses so good that their meat tastes like heavenly delicacies? Chances are they used a Griddle - it’s the only way to get that priceless, delicious crust. Also, griddles lock in the flavors. How you ask? Well, that’s because the surface is flat and the juices can’t escape. They have no choice but to infuse with the meat - and that’s perfect! On a griddle, the fat becomes a flavoring agent. That means juicier, more savory meats. Throw some seasonings on the flat top, and the meat will soak them right up - can’t get that on any ordinary grill.
#3 Steam and Smoke Food
We already talked about the searing, but Blackstone griddles do even more. First off, you can steam up meals. All it takes is a basting cover
and some water. Now you’ve got STEAM! Moisture on your meat, steaming hot veggies, and melted cheese! Delicious! Also, you may have heard that smoking works only with charcoal. Don’t listen; those guys got it wrong! Griddles smoke up dishes too - all it takes is a technique called the smoke hack! Basically, light up some chips and cover them to smoke your dishes. Learn how to do the smoke hack and steam meals in this article!

#7 Serve the Whole Crowd!

#8 Cook up in Every Season
When do folks eat BBQ? Summer, right? Well, with Blackstone you can cook it up in any season: summer, fall, winter, and spring. Scorching sun or harsh winter, the griddle works just fine. That’s because the griddle relies on propane. And propane doesn’t die out because of a harsh wind. The burners won’t die out because of moisture in the air. So, if it’s winter and you want a griddled meal, go for it. In fact, we did! This guide teaches you how to griddle it up in the snow!
So, rain or shine, hot or cold, the griddle cooks up any meal to perfection.
