Kettle Griddle
« on: March 20, 2015, 01:44:26 PM »
Has anyone seen or used this griddle on a Weber Kettle?
http://www.amazon.com/Stok-SIS7010-Grills-Griddle-Grilling/dp/B00COA76UG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1426886693&sr=8-1&keywords=stok+mega+griddle

The griddle itself is 19 inch in diameter and it sits on a wire rack

Itís made for Stok grills, but the description states that it fits most 22.5 Kettle style grills.
The material is Cast Iron, which is very promising and it weighs 23lbs, so it must be thick and heavy-duty.
I went ahead and ordered one anyway and will see how well itíll work. I like the size of it and I figured worse case scenario, I can use it as a pizza stone. I like using cast iron in place of pizza stones that often crack and break. And the size is perfect for X-Large pizza :)

That looks nicer than the Manturion from Weber SA.


I don't think the Weber is CI and that is a nice piece if CI.


Wonder if it fits on the tabs, without a grid underneath.


I want one.

That looks like it would fit. As long as the outer frame is 21.5 it will fit like a glove
Every kettle has a story.

Just ordered one of these.


A little cheaper here, although I bought it from Amazon with free shipping.

They also have a pizza stone that appears to fit the same wire frame:

Congrats ClubChapin !!!
I canít wait until I get mine and test it :)
I think they refer to this area for the Inset 10Ē pancake guide

The Pizza stone looks real nice and thick, but I think the CI griddle would double nicely as pizza stone.

The Griddle finally arrived!!
The grate fits perfectly on the kettle :)

I can already think of one additional use for the wire grate :) Kabob Skewers!!
Here is the flat side. It has a couple of rough spots, but a good seasoning should take care of that.

And the other side

I like that Iíll be able to place the lid on during heating, which would lessen the initial heating time. This is a heavy and thick cast iron griddle and will require time to come up to temp. I also think itíll make an excellent pizza stone replacement.
Canít wait to season it and test it :)

I'm curious to hear your feedback on this. I actually found two of these at a Target store a few months ago. They had a sale on all the Stok products and I picked up the grates and some of the inserts. The large grill looked promising at first but the finish seemed really rough and the casting differences between the two examples was very obvious. Both were rough but the grille ridges on one of them were really wavy. I don't wanna crap on Stok products but I had to pop open multiples of everything I purchased that day to make sure the examples I got were usable.

Interesting.  I've been using a Lodge pizza pan:  http://www.amazon.com/Lodge-Pro-Logic-P14P3-Pizza-14-inch/dp/B0000E2V3X

The extra real estate would be nice, but my previous experience with Stok cast iron leaves me skeptical.

Seasoned the griddle yesterday and it took on the seasoning very well.
I first washed well, then coated lightly with vegetable oil. I then placed it in cold oven and turned up the temp to 475 degrees. Left it there for about 1.5 hours and turned off the oven and left it there until it was totally cool to touch, which took several hours.
I ended up very nice and slick coating and dark color. No cracking or any issues so far and all that left is an actual cooking session to see how it holds upÖ

Ready to go :)

It's porcelain coated, why would it benefit from seasoning?

It's not porcelain coated, just pain cast iron.

Ah, OK thanks. I assumed it was made like their regular grate system.
