    We found a Blackstone 17 Flat Top grill for $40 local! OMG I NEED THAT!

    Lady selling was so serious about "first come, first cash" that I swear a dude pulled in 10 seconds after the DW to pay her. They purchased for a family reunion, or something, so it hardly looks used. Good find! Feeling pretty spanky about it - I've wanted one for a long time.

    So, this season I have a new Charbroil tabletop grill (new but discounted), and the new-to-me Blackstone hotness and going to run these off a 20# pounder. The TT will be a hot joint this season! Pics when we go camping next month, I promise.

    I really like the blackstone. So ,much , that i am trying to do away with the grill. The blackstone just cooks more even. Its not the same as a grill, but i like it better all the same. And, pankakes, bacon is now easy!

    That is a nice score! I have to tell you about the deal I found. Walmart clearanced the 36" last fall. I picked up 2 for $45 each. Brand new...lol.
    It is too big an heavy for me to take camping but we use them at bike races to help feed 40 kids and their parents.

    I think I could justify the room for a 36in at that price! And a hand truck to move it with, too! I will miss our old Grillin Griddle. It's gotta be 20 years old by now... No ignitor, regulator works with a screwdriver only... Happy Retirement!

    you're gonna love the Blackstone! We have the 17" model, it ALWAYS goes camping with us, & we also have the 26" standalone model we use for family gatherings, we love 'em.

    Nice grab! I would be "all in" except I have a double burner griddle for my Pro90.... Lately, if I'm on my own, the CampChef stays in the truck and I just use my Coleman stove and Weber grill.
