Blackstone Table Top Grill – 17 Inch

Well, after more than 20 years using our trusty old Weber grill, I’ve switched to this Blackstone, which we bought in November 2020.

And I couldn’t be happier.

It has more grilling space than our Weber, 260 square inches as opposed to only 189 square inches. That is a huge increase.

I have managed to cook just about anything and everything on this grill.

For example, Huevos Rancheros. I am able to put a pot on the grill and heat up the beans, then move the pot into a cooler corner to keep them warm. I put a small pot in the corner and warmed up our salsa verde to pour over the eggs. While those two pots are in the corners,  I can easily baste 4 eggs at one time while placing 4 corn tortillas on the gill to warm them up. Everything is served hot and ready to eat.  FANTASTIC!

And that is just one example.

It uses a small hole in the corner to deposit all the debris in a handy cup for easy disposal.

The burners below the top are never exposed to what’s cooking, so they stay clean. The top takes only a few moments to clean and prepare for the next meal.

While I haven’t yet gotten rid of my Weber, I have been cooking all our outside meals on our Blackstone.
