New Griddle Q

I've seen this product mentioned a number of times on here and I was hoping to get some opinions from some of you owners out there. How do you use it?

Among other things, I want to try it with burgers. I live about 50 miles from Bobcat Bite, home of Bon Appetit's best burger in a America, and they cook on a very old and certainly well-seasoned griddle. The crust on those puppies is fantastic, not to mention really hard to duplicate.

Also, looks like they are gonna be coming out with a round version that will fit the LBGE not coincidentally. As usual, thanks in advance.

    WHOA :ohmy: Kinda pricey, don't know anything about it, but it is likely to go on my "wish list" :P

    I just posted below a link to a fish taco video I made using my Griddle Q on the gasser.

    It's a very cool accessory to have. I gave my gasser away so I only use the Griddle Q that fits my large Egg now.

    Here's another link to a video:

    And here I'm making cornbread omelets at the Oklahoma (also Texas) Eggfests:





    I've done steaks, burgers, shrimp, fish, veggies, all kinds of breakfasts's on mine and love it.

    You will enjoy owning one.

    Thanks to Spring Chicken I bought my Griddle-Q and I love it! Granted I don't use it that often, but when the "want" hits me I have the toy! While this may seem like being a square peg in a round hole it works for me. The new round one will be nice but I doubt I will be buying one as the squareness when using a spatula is great!

    I live 1,300 miles from Bobcat and have been twice!! By far the best burger I've ever eaten! I got the green chili burger and it was awesome!



    I found an article listing the top 25 burgers in the US and Bobcat Bite was in there. I would love to try everyone on the list and see if I agree! I agree with Bobcat for sure!!

    Now that's committment, Steve. We're on the same page, friend. BB has now won Bon Appetit's Best in consecutive years. For the life of me, i can't figure out how they do it with that perfect outer crust and the middle cooked so perfectly even.

    Tell you what: I'll meet you up there this weekend and buy you lunch. ;)

    I love the round model coming out but that price will keep me away for sure. Wow. $130 for a few pounds of stainless steel. Nice but no thanks.

    I haven't done much griddleing, but it seems my 14" C.I. skillet would do the trick. Is there some other advantage of the Griddle Q that would be worth the expense?
