More Blackstone Griddle Questions - re-seasoning

I have just purchased my third Blackstone Griddle (tail gater) and am falling in love with it.

I have a 36Ē unit that has been sitting idle for about a year so I figured I needed to ďre-seasonĒ it.

The first thing I did was scrub it with a scrubber and water to clean it and wiped it down with a light coat of Canola oil.

Then I cranked up the heat to start the first round of seasoning and several areas started bubbling up. I shut the heat off and scrubbed these areas clean with a metal scrap and started all over again.

After a couple of rounds it seemed there is a area of bare metal that is not taking the oil. Can my heat be too high? Itís around 750 degrees according to my infrared sensor.

Thanks for any help.

Welcome to our campfire!
I was under the impression that seasoning the griddle involved burning off the oil that you added to it.
(But I'm on my first one right now... )

Bob - This is my first time to re-season a griddle - I don't know if the process is supposed to remove all the previous seasoning down to bare metal. I thought it just put down a new layer. I am not sure.

Thanks for the reply-

Try doing just what you did the first time.
After all: what's the worst thing that could happen?
Good luck!

If you want to do a "good" re-seasoning. Use steel wool, scapper and water to remove top the layers of old seasonings. Then oil up and heat like a new one


If its not flaking or rusting no real need to re-season. Just water down and clean just like after a cook, then oil and heat til smoke stops cool and put away

If Iím not mistaken the Blackstone manual tells you how to re-season if needed.

I found a great video released by Blackstone on YouTube that answered all my questions - thanks for all comments

750 degrees F is hot enough to distort carbon steel so a bit hotter than you want

Unless you have rust simply scrape, oil, heat like the first seasoning

Works fine for me on our original Blackstone

Steel wool can leave marks on the griddle. Try using a griddle brick from your local restaurant supply store.

When I said steel wool I should have said to use it lightly not scrub hard

I use 0000 steel wool on the windshield

Should work on the griddle as well

Usually the scraper will do the job though

I think they season the best under a full load of bacon and eggs.

Heat the griddle up until it is smoking hot - it starts to burn off a bunch of junk. Then give it a squirt of water to get a nice steam going - steam cleans. Then lightly scrape it with your choice of tool. Give it a minute and hit it with water one last time. Reduce the heat to low, wait 10 minutes and put 2 pounds of bacon on it and render down. Drain bacon fat into grease trap and call it a day. Make BLTs when done.

When all else fails rub some bacon on it:
