Placing the griddle on cool grill grates protects your hands from coming into contact with hot grill grates when positioning the griddle. It’s also very important that the grill remains level. Otherwise, liquids will run off to one side.
The Char-Broil® Carbon-Steel Griddle Stone gives the foods you love to grill a full, even, diner-style sear. And the flat surface provides the versatility you need to cook a variety of batters, diced and small foods with no worries about them falling through the grates.
With the griddle stone in place, you can grill pancakes, eggs, bacon and hash browns for breakfast. And because the entire metal surface is heated, sandwiches like grilled cheese and cheesesteaks cook and brown evenly. Fish won’t stick to a well-oiled griddle surface and your veggies will have rich, caramelized flavor.
HOW TO USE A GRIDDLE STONE ON YOUR GRILL
To protect the griddle surface and prevent food from sticking, generously apply cooking oils with higher smoke points, such as vegetable, sunflower seed, peanut and avocado oil.
You’ll want to have a good griddle tool set. A chopper/scraper is the most essential tool for griddle cooking. You’ll use it regularly to chop and dice vegetables and scrape food residue to keep the cooking surface clear. A long turner spatula is handy for turning piles of hash browns and a short spatula is just right for flipping burgers. Squirt bottles make it easy to oil your griddle and season your food.
Clean the griddle after each use. When you’re finished cooking, scrape off all the food residue and cooked bits. Wipe the griddle clean with a damp rag. Wear protective gloves, as it’s best to do this while the griddle is still hot. Finally, add a thin coat of cooking oil. Wipe it down with a rag and safely store it so it’s ready the next time you need it.
