The Ultimate Blackstone Accessories For Dads
Have you heard of the Blackstone griddle?
The boys recently got one for Mike as a surprise after he had been talking about one for a long time.
And I have to say, it is a game changer when it comes to cooking outside. It’s basically like having a hibachi grill or griddle right in your own backyard! The girls jokingly ask him if he plans to throw eggs in the air, catch them and then cook them in the stack of onions like the chefs do at hibachi restaurants.
We all had a nice chuckle imagining Mike doing that in our backyard.
But in all seriousness… he has cooked us some amazing meals already! I have never had pancakes like the ones he made on the Blackstone and the steamed veggies are to die for. Oh, and I can’t forget the steak…oh gosh the steaks are SO good too! Everything just tastes better on the Blackstone.
Honestly this gift for Mike has turned into a gift for us as well!

Blackstone Accessories For Dads
In the image below I have numbered each Blackstone item or accessory I’m sharing. If you scroll down a bit more I talk about which ones we have and which ones we are looking to add to our collection. Have fun browsing and shopping and please let me know if you have any questions!
All The Blackstone Details and Accessories
- Blackstone 4 Burner 36″ Griddle Cooking Station: this is the griddle itself! My husband recommends the 36inch as the perfect size. I will link it here from Walmart but make sure to shop around because we have found some fabulous deals all over.
- Blackstone Cook and Carry Griddle Caddy : I plan to get this for my husband this year or possibly this waterproof tub. He currently is holding all of his accessories in a cardboard box. Ha!
- Blackstone 4 Piece Breakfast Kit : Remember those pancakes I mentioned? This is the kit we have and love! The pancake dispenser was fun to use and maybe it was the fact that there was bacon grease that the pancakes were cooked in that made them AMAZING!
- Blackstone Griddle Cover, 36″ Black and Gray : This is our cover ( a must in Colorado and most places) and we found it at Lowes. They have been hard to find on-line and sometimes sell out quickly. I have linked a few different ones here for you and some of them are more affordable options!
- Cast Iron Griddle Press : We don’t have this one but it would be perfect for cooking steaks!
- Blackstone Rear Grease Cup Liner : These are a MUST! We have them and always use them. I could tell you some crazy stories about them filling up but I will spare you the hot and greasy details.
- Blackstone Deluxe Stainless Steel 6 Piece Spatula Griddle Set : Mike uses all of these pieces when he cooks. This would be a great starter kit!
- Blackstone Acacia Wood Cutting Board : I have my eye on this for cutting up veggies and it can go directly on the griddle! We have also found that using a cover like this steams your veggies to perfection!
- Seasonings: Parmesan Ranch, Tequila Lime, and Whiskey Steak . We have a few other seasonings we enjoy but I am excited to have Mike try these as well!
- Silicone Griddle Gloves : This griddle gets hot! Gloves are a must and an apron is probably a good idea too.
- Stainless Steel Taco Rack : This just looked cool and we love tacos!
- 3 Piece Press and Sear Hamburger Must Have Tool Kit : We had burgers once on our Blackstone and they were delicious and these tools were helpful. My husband has found a lot of awesome tutorials for burgers and steaks and anything you can dream of over on YouTube and Tik Tok! Just google Blackstone Tutorials.

Blackstone Griddle Cleaning Tools
The Blackstone Griddle requires some maintenance beyond the griddle and accessories. The most important part being seasoning it!
We have found this 8 piece griddle cleaning kit and this griddle seasoning and cast iron conditioner to be VERY helpful! My husband has also learned that prepping your griddle before you cook is of utmost importance. He watched several videos before he used his griddle and was very happy that he did!
How Often Should You Season Your Blackstone Griddle?
How often you should season your griddle? The common answer is once a week but ultimately it depends on how often you use your griddle.
If you notice your food starting to stick then it is time to season your griddle! You need to think of like a cast iron pan.
Is The Blackstone Griddle Worth It?
A lot of people are asking if the Blackstone griddle is worth it? And the answer is yes!
But, honestly it depends on what type of surface you are looking for. If you want a large cooking space where you can cook multiple items at one time then this griddle is perfect for you. It is also very durable and will last if you take care of it up to 20 years or more! This is a quality piece.
However, if you are into traditional barbequing then this griddle most likely isn’t what you are looking for. A griddle is very different from a barbeque or grill.
One thing they do have in common is that they both use propane tanks.
