Anybody bought a griddle from bass pro?

was in bass pro this week and saw they have a griddle under their name- red head or something like that.

the griddle looks to be abought 32" wide but the thin that impressed me about it is the frame is much more beefy and sturdy than the Blackstone. Negative though is it is $299 and I don't think they hardly ever put them on sale. Anybody ever seen or used one?

    The quality looks much nicer than the Blackstone. I'd be worried about how long Redhead brand will be around for replacement parts in the future. 

    Where is the grease trap on it? I didn't see it in any of the pictures I found online

    Grease trap is just like the old Blackstone model except it is on the front left

    I have one. It really is heavy duty. I don't have much experience with a Blackstone to compare, but I do like this one. BassPro seems to be a pretty solid company and their RedHead Brand has been part of them for quite a while. I haven't had it long enough for anything to wear out and so far nothing has gone wrong... Feel free to post questions and/or PM me if you want more opinions.

    I.have those redhead.wool.socks with lifetime warranty.  Everytime I wear a hole, I bring it in without a receipt needed, and.they tell me.to grab a new pair off the shelf.   I know the griddle is a bigger investment, but just sayin lol....

    Just to ease your worry, Redhead has been around since 1908.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    This.  And MacGyver has and will be around forever.  I mean what problem could possibly arise that you can't MacGyver yourself ;)

    Anything can happen but Bass Pro bought Cabelas and is keeping both brands alive. BP is a huge company, Redhead is their in-house brand.
