Griddles
« on: January 09, 2021, 10:38:50 AM »
Looking for ideas or thoughts on griddle grilling. Have a 22, a gasser and a PBC; trying to narrow/decide how to go at this. Considering a camp chef explorer and the flat top accessory, a hunsaker for the 22, or a lodge ci griddle. I like that the lodge would work on both the 22 and the gasser. Not sure what other things people considered or had good luck with.

Looking for tips/advice from anyone that has been down this particular rabbit hole, and also for tips how to use on the 22 in terms of # coals, etc.

Thanks!

I use my Pizza Steel quite often.  I have a 14.5" cast iron but the Pizza Steel works better.

I missed this post over the weekend I guess.... I have the new SNS plancha which is a 1/4 thick carbon steel griddle plate that fits a 22" kettle.  It works very well so far - I've done smash burgers, chicken breast filets (butterflied) and multiple breakfasts that have turned out rather well.  There is a little bit of a learning curve with is as far as heat zones and I'm still experimenting.  What's worked best for me is to place the slots left and right with foil lined Weber charcoal baskets underneath each slot to catch grease and scrapings and put about a half chimney of glowing hot coals toward the back between the baskets, tapering off to no coals under the front 1/3 of the griddle plate.  My inclination is to put too many coals in and I can't seem to break that habit, fearing that I won't have enough heat to finish a cook.  But it always stays hot for another hour after I'm done, so I may get it through my thick head soon lol.... It is a lot of fun to cook on.  Best of luck!

Another option if you have a metal shop in town.  Just have them cut a disc of your liking.  A 1/4 inch or 3/8 HSLA disc would be fine.
