I bought a Blackstone Griddle. I love it's design & the ease of cooking food on it. After using it for a 2nd time, I found that the grease that dripped from the griddle into the container that hangs from the side of the griddle was lacking. The biggest issue for me, was the grease that would drip backwards from the exit hole & run down the leg of the griddle; totally unacceptable.

I searched the net for some modification ideas, with this issue, for this griddle, and I came across a post on this website.

After finding no solution, or idea that I like, I decided to come up with my own design, & share it here.

You can find a full set of photos that I unloaded to my Flickr account..

I cannot believe that no one has commented on this. You could make something like this and sell it as an accessory! I really dislike the grease trap, but love the griddle. I've seen some "Mickey Mouse" fixes or relocations for the trap, but this takes the cake. Very Happy

Great solution.

I need to call over a buddy who does metalwork. and offer to feed him well for something like this.

Because of the direction my deck slopes, I'd like to relocate my entire grease trap setup to the other side, but am a bit hesitant to hack on the griddle itself and weld the tab and hole on the chute to the other side. Any thoughts or ideas on this?

Great mod! Very Happy

I have a 3 burner Camp Chef with a griddle. The grease trap
is definitely lacking to say the least.

You got me thinking now.... Very Happy

All you need to do to solve the grease trap issue is use a piece of small diameter metal rod cut to length and stuck through the grease tray hole so that it reaches from slightly above the hole down to one of the bottom corners of the grease cup. A straight piece of coat hanger wire works great. The grease will track right down the wire. No welding. Smile
