Wasn’t expecting this. I guess all of my hints to SWMBO paid off 

Seasoning it as I type this. Just going by Blackstone seasoning directions, anything else I need to know?

    Congrats!  You're gonna love it.

    You asked about seasoning.  Avoid flaxseed oil.  After cooking each time, clean and oil - don't leave for next time or it can flake on you.

    1 round of seasoning then go pick up a few packs of bacon and cook them up. Get a rag and get that bacon grease evenly coated. 

    It will be pristine in no time. Congrats!

    This is the one piece of advice I'd recommend.

  • Solid advice. I just got one as well and was getting ready to ask the same question. @jabam what’s your first cook going to be after it’s seasoned?

    I actually cooked breakfast on it this morning. 
    No pics, but I cooked pancakes and scrambled eggs, with hash browns and an omelette for myself, came out pretty good for
    the first go at it. Also learned no need to cook on high, turns it down to medium and worked like a charm

    Second cook on the BS. 

    Was at the granddaughters softball tourney all day (they got 2nd), so we went with something simple, Chicken fajitas. 

    Love this thing!

    Thats a great gift for sure. Enjoy it my friend.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.
