    Not sure where this really belongs but it's sort of grilling. Well it's outdoor cooking and I thought id share it because I had fun making it.

    I went to school in Philly and ate too many cheesesteaks to count. Got the Blackstone griddle for Christmas and this is one thing I really needed to try.

    I got some Australian boneless ribeyes for 3.99 per pound! Froze them, sliced them as thin as I could with my electric slicer.. Here are some pics:

    Really simple and delicious. Bread, steak, cheese, onions, salt, pepper. There really is something to be said about simplicity in cooking. Thanks for looking!


    P.S. How would I go about starting a griddle cooking group? Seems like a lot of users have outdoor griddles these days and it would be fun to share our cooks.

    I like some extras added in too! Picky eaters though for lunch haha. My wife gets fussy if she even sees the onions.

    Thanks! I think cheesesteaks were my main motivation for wanting a Blackstone

    Hey Chris those are some awesome looking cheese steak subs.

    I would love to have a flat top like that.

    Thanks! I went to college in Philly and Yuengling was always the beer of choice.  Unfortunately, I didn't have any...but don't worry, I had some other icy cold beers! 
    Thanks so much Al!  I love this blackstone griddle.  So much room to cook, such a great nonstick surface, and really easy to clean up.

    Nice job with the cheese steaks!
    The Blackstones are really nice! Breakfast is another nice cooking option with them. And they do a great job cooking bacon.

    SmokinAl you need a Blackstone....think you would really enjoy it.
  10. The wife and kids got me a Blackstone 28" for Christmas and I still haven't use it yet. Might have to break out this weekend and break it in on some cheesesteaks.

    Been thinking about getting one of those. Thanks for pushing me to the final decision.
  15. If you have the room this is a great unit.....we love our flat top

  16. Great looking Steaks !!!

    We love a good cheese steak, but I always buy 1.5 to 2 inch steaks (generally chuck-eye ) and sear them before slice them. Cooked to a medium then allowed to rest until room temperature. Then i break out the slicer. If I use raw meat i generally buy a chuck roast and gently freeze then slice paper thin, but I stack the meat in 1/4 inch slabs and each layer the grain is turned opposite the previous. Each slab is wrapped and frozen for future use. Cook on a 350 f griddle, and it will fluff out with a little help from 2 - 6 inch spatulas.

    Nothing! I too have the Campchef and it works just like the black stone that my friend has. My camp chef turns out better food than he does. Thing is if I used his BS and he used my CC, the BS would turn out better food!

    Thanks so much! I agree that there is probably know difference. Got this one as a gift and I love it but im sure the camp chef is great too!
  20. Had 2 flank steaks out so I ran them threw my slicer and broke in the Blackstone today with what other than some cheese steaks. I was very impressed how fast this griddle cooked. I see myself using a lot. [​IMG]
