40 thoughts on “Comparing Blackstone vs Camp Chef Grills”

  1. With the Camp Chef you can adjust the level so grease will run into the drip cup (This is important). Also with Camp Chef you can light any single burner you want and not have to first light the left one which will light the next one and so on. and finally the Camp Chef is also a conventional grill with a flat top griddle on top. Black Stone is a griddle only. The Blackstone does have a slightly larger cooking surface. You can't go wrong with either.

  2. Okay. I'm just going to say it. This video is a waste of time. There's no real information, but there's nothing stopping you to going back and making a proper assessment of these tools. You can redo this.

  3. That's 5 minutes I'll never get back. Why not talk about the differences you CAN'T see before buying them? Any idiot can look at the pictures and see one has 1 shelf and the other has 2, or that it doesn't have wheels on one side. If you think having a hard time hanging the propane tank is noteworthy maybe you should let the wife do it.

  4. I received and built a Blackstone 36" flat top 5/24/2018. The drip tray has changed, probably because of the problems many cooks have noted with the grease going places other than the drip pan.

    Now, instead of a long tray in front, there is an inclined indentation in the back of the flat top; the drip pan is placed directly below this. There is no long trip for the grease to make and drip pan is easily removable from the back. There is now no possibility of the liquid grease going anywhere but the drip pan.

  5. Thanks for posting the video. Very helpful. As a suggestion, instead of saying "this one" "that one", just say the name of the manufacturer. We don't know them that well, and it doesn't take up much time.

  6. Thanks to your reviews, as well as Tonybuddy 123, I was able to make an informed choice…I chose the Camp Chef FT600 because:
    1) Each burner has it's own ignition source, not needing any batteries.
    2) Folding shelves.
    3) Tank mount.
    4) Double duty as a grill as well as a griddle.
    5) Competitive price…I could go buy a Blackstone at my local home center for $279, but for $70 more, I get more versatility, a cover, and a box of cooking gadgets.

    Thanks for your effort!

  7. Just got a .Blackstone. They changed the  grease trap to the back. am very happy with the Blackstone. Got the cover fits good an quality is good. No problem with the gas tank. asmbilely was les the 15 min.

  8. I used to own both. The biggest difference to me was the flat top. They are made of different materials. In my opinion, Blackstone is superior to any others. However, I currently own Camp Chef due to the convince and look. Let me know if you have any questions.

  9. You should review a Rocky Mountain Cookware/Chef King griddle! Made in USA and they even do custom sizes.

  10. The black stone is 36” cooking area. How many inches is the griddle cooking area? It looks smaller. Like maybe 32”?

  11. Very helpful video i was trying to make my mind on those two and i chose camp chef because of the stationary legs they can level the flat top. Also the hidden grill is the bomb! 😄

  12. Thanks for the video as I'm on the fence right now about which to buy. Can someone tell me if the "pre-seasoned" griddle from camp chef is permanent or will it have to be re-seasoned periodically?  Will rust be an issue with the camp chef???

  13. I just bought my Blackstone one month ago and already had to refill the tank twice I can get two or three dinners out of a tank is that normal

  14. which of these does the griddle remove easiest on , i am surrounded by farm fields and right now i have a problem with rodents getting in my grill , i would like to store the flat top inside.

  15. Biggest difference, in my opinion, is natural gas conversion. Blackstone sells the conversion pieces with new valve orifices. Camp Chef sells you a 10' hose and instructions to drill out the existing valves with a #54 drill bit. I'd rather install new valves than drill out the existing ones and run the risk of screwing it up.

  16. Just got a Blackstone yesterday for Fathers Day from my daughter and I love it so far. It is the newer model with the rear grease drain and it works really well. The tank holder is different also and easier to attach. I would much rather have the grease run away from me then have to pool in front of me and pop my arms and clothes.
