I'm looking for flat top griddle that would also be portable (legs fold) I would need one bigger than the 17" portable blackstone sells.

Any recommendations?

I have pass-through storage on a 5th wheel to store it when traveling

if you have a burner already for scalding chickens or deep frying turkeys or a grill i use mine all time. camping we put it on the fir ring n move coals appropriately.. and on my gas range i works great just heat slow.. https://www.campchef.com/cooking-systems/16-inch-cooking-system-accessories/griddle-16-1-burner.html ...
i have the grill box n griddle n shelves. not the system https://www.campchef.com/cooking-systems/16-cooking-systems/guys-pro90x-package.html .. oh they have big griddle also

I'd recommend the BlackStone 22". I have one. And like it a lot. Heats up fast and cooks evenly thanks to the twin H style burners.

I have a question for those of you with the blackstone 22" griddle. I was ready to order it the other day and noticed it was only 12,000 BTU's with about half the cooking surface of the four burner that puts out 60,000 BTU's. For those with the 22", do you feel you have enough BTu's to heat up quickly? The 28" puts out 30,000 BTU's. this has me a bit concerned.

It's got 24,000 BTU's, not 12. It heats up very fast and I know for myself and a couple of other guys that own them we end up doing all our cooking on the flattop turned down as low as it will go after it's heated up. They are great to have and very versatile, cooks evenly throughout the surface of the griddle. I highly recommend getting the adapter hose so you can run 20 pound tank. RAY

I was able to find a 22" with hood cover, stand, and Propane adaptor hose at my local Walmart yesterday for $175. I think I'm set. Thanks for all the info.

Great! If you could give us some feedback on the stand. We would appreciate it. I made a cart for mine after I read some reviews saying the stand wasn't very stable. If I hear differently I would still like to get one for when I take it on a picnic.

I purchased the adventure ready 22 about a week or so ago. Stand is sturdy enough for cooking I don’t have any issue with it. I’ve cooked burgers and peppers and onions, did blackened fish night before last and yesterday morning did bacon and blueberry pancakes. Mine gets plenty hot, I cooked yesterday morning with it set to low and just let it preheat until infrared thermometer showed 350 to 375 or so.

I agree with Cattoon. I set the griddle up last night and it seems plenty sturdy to cook on if you have firm ground. Assembling the base was a bit of a hassle to get the legs leveled, but very doable. I considered using a portable folding workbench, but decided against it as I do like the foot holders that the base has for the cooktop.

Thanks for the feedback! I think I'll snag one if I see a decent deal on one.
