I agree, it would take some preplanning and having maybe 6 cookers/grillers camp near one another, then once I'm finished cooking, I turn the heat down and I'm ready to drink and wander and taste, not necessarily in that order

I bought a Coleman Fold-n-go https://www.amazon.com/Coleman-20000...AJ8J72Y35BVQ8Q which was one of the smallest grills I could find. This will fit in either the tongue storage box or in the back storage compartment under the bed. My bed is permanent so I wanted a grill that would fit thru the exterior access hatch. I would rather use a Weber Q, but haven't found a place to store it where it would be out of the way in the trailer. I have not used the grill yet, so can't comment on it's performance.

Same thing as the former contents of that big green bowl, shes just gone. Philosophically speaking. Thanks for the photos Glenn.

I have a question for Blackstone griddle owners.



Do you also carry a grill?


I see a need for a small grill too. Some things, it seems, the Blackstone (I own one) will not do as well as a grill.


Any comments?

I carry one or the other but not both. If I take my Cobb grill then no Blackstone. I have found that I can cook just about everything on the Blackstone, even items in a pan I put the pan on the griddle to heat up. I have 2-3 nice camp stoves and several cast iron griddles now collecting rust in the garage due to the Blackstone.

Just the Blackstone. Some things it may not do as well as a grill but I don't want the mess and smell of a grill in the trailer when traveling.

We only carry a 17” Blackstone.

If grilling raise meat or ? 2” above surface.

I wish we had discovered the blackstone when they made a 15” camping grill.
Dreaming blackstone might make again. Sighs

Was not aware of any smaller models, there are other small griddles around...

How do you handle steaks and shish-ka-bobs. Did I spell that right?


I really like the Blackstone (17"), I just don't know how to approach typical grilling meats.


And thank you Jim, I bought the nice accessory set too.

Sort of a repost from about #55 here....but it works pretty good for us. The Blackstone Tailgater. My buddy has a big pot that he puts on there to do lobsters or a big pot of chilli, but I have not tried it.

We always take a small charcoal grill for steaks and chicken legs but use the blackstone for everything else.

Growing up we never had a grill, all our meals were cooked on the stove and steaks were done on a cast iron griddle on stove top. So steaks can be grilled

These Tailgater units look fantastic but Im a bit concerned with the portability for camping. Also hard to justify especially with a Weber Q and Coleman stove with griddle already in the arsenal.

Excellent point. My plan is to set it up if I am in one place for about a week. It does set up quickly though. I have a cover that goes over it to keep rain and stuff off it. Otherwise it stays in 2 storage bags in the back of the truck.

At home I leave it set up most of the late spring into fall. I actually use it a fair amount.

I realize they can be grilled on cast iron but I prefer the taste of charcoal grilled steaks.
