Whether you’ve been cooking on a Blackstone griddle for years or are brand new to flat-top grill cooking, you’re bound to find some new favorite recipes for camping, tailgating, or any kind of outdoor cookout.
In April of 2020 my husband and I sold our house and moved into a 5th-wheel RV. As we traveled from campground to campground, I noticed a lot of campers cooking outside on a large flat-top grill.
I soon learned that the grill most of our camping neighbors were using was a Blackstone Griddle. Even without knowing anything about them, the advantages of having one were obvious, and I couldn't wait to purchase one of my own.
What is a Blackstone Grill?
A Blackstone Grill (Blackstone Griddle) is a portable cast iron flat-top grill with up to 36 inches of cooking space that's fueled by propane.
For most campers, cooking on a Blackstone grill is considerably easier than cooking on a tiny RV stovetop or camp stove.
Not only does the large flat cast iron cooktop allow you to prepare a lot of food at once, many Blackstone Griddles also have 2 or 3 independently adjustable burners. This gives the cook greater control over temperature while cooking several different foods at once.
What Are the Main Advantages of Cooking on an Outdoor Griddle?
- The large flat top surface. Ranging in size from 17 inches to 36 inches, Blackstone cooktops offer plenty of room to cook a lot of food, or several different kinds of foods, at once.
- Blackstone Griddles have the same properties as restaurant-grade Hibachi griddles. This means they have a versatile cooking surface with the ability to get very hot.
- They are portable! Blackstone grills are easy to take anywhere, camping, tailgating, or just to a friend's backyard BBQ.
- Propane powered. There's no need to set up a Blackstone next to a power outlet because they are powered by their own small, portable propane tank.
- Blackstone Griddles have a cast iron surface that is non-stick, retains and conducts heat well, is easy to care for, and will last for years and years.
What Can You Cook on a Blackstone Grill?
I think a better question is, what can't you do with a Blackstone Grill? They really are an incredibly versatile way to cook dinner! In addition to the recipes below, here are just a few things that I love to cook on our Blackstone grill:
- Grilled sandwiches or burgers
- Any kind of kabobs
- Any kind of protein, including juicy seared steaks, pork tenderloin or chops, seasoned chicken, fish fillets, sausage... the list goes on and on
- Grilled quesadillas
- Pancakes or French toast for a crowd
- Flat breads like tortillas and naan

Blackstone Griddle Smash Burgers
The Smashburger is intended to be cooked on a flattop grill, so it's a super obvious (and delicious!) recipe idea for a Blackstone Griddle.

How We Created an Outdoor Kitchen with A Blackstone Grill
Our Heartland Cyclone 5th wheel came with a standard outdoor kitchen that included a slide-out metal countertop with a sink (no drain), a two-burner gas stovetop, a super tiny refrigerator, and a television.
We replaced the metal countertop (and drain-less sink) with butcher block and swapped out the two burner gas stove for a 22-inch Blackstone Griddle.
We also removed the tiny refrigerator and added a slide-out shelf as a permanent platform for our Traeger Grill and Smoker.
Before the remodel, I only used the outdoor kitchen every once in a while. Now, I use it all the time, making dinner on our Blackstone grill several times a week all year long.
