Yes, frying as in a fry pan is done on a griddle, basically a fry pan without sides.

The best barbeque belongs to your site neighbors.. and they invite you to use it right after they've finished. You don't have to tote it or clean it! Works for me...

As to griddle and frying, I'm not really sure what purpose is served that can't be served by a large fry pan on a propane or butane burner.
I did have one. It was cast iron, weighed a ton and was a pain to clean. Mine had a convex surface with a gutter around the outside, which meant the butter or oil immediately slid off where it was needed.

I have a big cast iron on, and it stays at our land for use on our wood cook stove. No way it goes in the trailer. Being cast iron, and well seasoned, a simple wipe with a dry towel is all it needs.

What I use when I know I am cooking for a bunch, is a large thing steel griddle, with teflon coating. It is not heavy, but comes along only when needed. I will be doing 4-6 french toast at a time for the breakfast in Osoyoos.

I also have the small one that is an accessory to the Spitfire BBQ, which is great for veggies, or slices of sweet potatoes, while the meat is cooking on the other side.

I wanted to get away from the non stick aluminum pans for various reasons, my choice was either cast iron or stainless, both of which are heavy. Maybe I'll go back to the old west method, using a shovel to cook over the campfire, that is a sure fire way to keep greenhorns from showing up....

This greenhorn would love to see that set up.

Everything I've seen from Europe lists heat output rationally, which means in kilowatts. Here, we live with that is printed in spec sheets and on product packaging for the U.S., so it is (ironically) in British Thermal Units per hour... although even that is often corrupted to just "BTU". Given the lack of accurate published information, it's no wonder that intelligent and supposedly educated people have no clue what the numbers mean.
