gas griddle

Hey guys, I was looking to purchase a gas griddle as a companion to my PK grill I usually take with us.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I have been looking at griddles like this, but have never used one.

http://www.amazon.com/Blackstone-Portable-Grill-Griddle-Combo/dp/B00TH3CWXY?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_ sfl_title_5&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

http://www.academy.com/shop/pdp/camp...dCatid=3463536

The price at Academy on the rainier combo is very good compared to Amazon.

We have a Coleman grill/griddle very similar to this and I LOVE it. We've had it for five years now, I think? I love being able to make coffee and breakfast at the same time on the griddle, then boil a pot of corn on the cob and grill burgers for dinner. By far one of my favorite items we own.

That looks like the one we bought at Gander Mountain, took it back. We use, most of the time, a Coleman Road Trip grill that has different attachments, stove grate, flat griddle, grooved grilling surface. Have an old George Foreman gas griddle that was hard to find and I believe no longer available

My first look and I was impressed. On my second look I had some questions. Weight of that lid was one, it appears light. That heavy lid on the Q100x is a plus. 26 # for the Q versus 18 # for the Blackstone. Second is the plates, this is not an open grate grill, rather it appears to be a grill plate with ridges. Not sure what difference it makes and depends on your cooking taste. Is this more like a George Foreman? Never had George so I can't tell.

Yup for under a hundred bucks I'm sure both the grills will be pretty light duty. the black stone grill does look pretty "George Forman", but I'm buying either one mainly for the griddle. Pancakes, bacon and eggs, hash browns....breakfast stuff mainly.

EMIJ, the Coleman grill you have that you like so much, was it similar to the black stone or the camp chef?
Thanks!!

I think you will really like it, especially having the griddle. This is the one we have. If you scroll down, you can see the griddle that goes with it is also for sale. We have literally used it for every camping meal for the past five years and it has held up really well. While the lid isn't crazy thick and strong, the grill and the griddle are incredibly durable. I was actually glad to see you can still buy it, because I love it so much.

Must have posted at the same time! Posted a link above to the stove. here is the link to the griddle that fits as well.

It ends up being a little more expensive to get the griddle and add the bag to hold it all, but it has definitely held up!

Hey thanks so much for the good review. That Coleman looks almost identical to the camp chef. I think I'm going to go by academy and see if they have the camp chef in stock so I can "lay eyes" on it. Thanks.

We have this George Foreman gas griddle. Bought it about 8 years ago. Don't know if it is still made. Has a plastic carry case.

Most of the time we use this Coleman Road Trip grill. It has a few different cooking parts, stove grate, smooth griddle, and grooved grate. The pan under the cook grates is removable for washing and Coleman recommends putting some water in it while cooking to catch any drippings. Comes with a stand but we use it on a another camp table that has side tables

Why do you all like to use a griddle like that, versus using a plain old frying pan on a gas burner? Just wondering what, if anything, I have been missing out on. (BTW, When camping, anything I want to grill goes on the charcoal grill.) Is it mainly so you can use one appliance for both grilling and frying?

For us, yes, one appliance for everything! For years I used a frying pan on a gas burner- we had a two burner Coleman stove, but I was always annoyed with the handle on the pan when trying to pack it somewhere. We car camped for a long time, and space was at a premium, so when we bought the new grill/griddle stove, it mattered to me that it all packed away together! We also never use a charcoal grill when camping, because so many times they've been banned due to high wildfire risk but you can always use gas. I think it is 100% personal preference! My sister ONLY cooks over the fire, so she brings a frying pan and even boils her coffee over the fire. I don't have the patience for that
