Blackstone question

has anyone replaced their gasser with a Blackstone? Can you do everything on a Blackstone that you can do on a gasser?

I don't have room for all three so I'm wondering if I can replace the gasser with a Blackstone.

    @SaintJohnsEgger  Your egg should be able to do anything the gasser can do.  The blackstone adds something completely different.  It does a lot to round out your oudoor cooking abilities.

    I would say an egg and blackstone wouldcover it all. If I had to choose between a gasser and blackstone . Blackstone hands down

    @blasting is right.  Blackstone is a different animal than a gasser.  Its a one-trick pony, but oh boy does it do that trick well.

    I sold my gasser, and will always have a griddle like the blackstone in my stable.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    the only thing i use the gasser for now is large quantities of grilled corn. i can load up 3 dozen ears in the husk in the weber.
  • I got rid of my gasser about 3 years ago and the only thing that frustrated me was when I needed a quick cook like chicken breasts on a Tuesday when I got home late. 

    The Blackstone has covered almost everything I would need for something like that. It's not a Gerber multi tool but it gets enough of the job done that I don't try and justify needing a gas grill.

    It's a two-trick pony.  You can get the gasser top for around $70 and switch between it and the griddle.

    Too bad they don't make that for the 28" model.

    Well...damn. Didn't see that on the Blackstone site just the 36"-er.

    Now I'm going to have to swing by Walmart and get a 28"-er and that grill top.
