  • How to Care for Your Griddle

    Griddle Care & Maintenance

    Most of our professional griddles come with a True-Seasoned Finish, just like all of our cast iron. To keep this finish in tip-top condition, your griddle needs a little TLC every now and then. By following the guide below, you will help keep your griddle clean, prevent rust, and build up the glass-like finish to keep food from sticking.

    Temperature Management

    Giving your griddle time to pre-heat properly will ensure you’re getting the best cooking performance possible. Start by setting your heat to Medium or Med-Low for about 5 minutes. This should bring the griddle surface temperature to about 350°-400° F, depending on the weather and environment. Then turn the heat to Med-Low or Low for 2-3 minutes for uniform heat across the entire cooking surface. The steel heats up quickly but cools slowly, so you’ll have plenty of heat to work with even after you turn down the burners. You’re ready to get cooking.

    Managing the heat on your griddle is important to prevent any possible damage. While the steel is strong and durable, you should only use Low or Medium heat settings. This is especially important if you want to use different heat settings on a large griddle that covers multiple burners. You have the capability to warm a tortilla on one side and cook a fajita mix on the other, but you want to keep both settings on Medium or lower.

    Cleaning

    After each use, clean off any food particles while the griddle is still warm. You might want to use a metal spatula or chain mail scrubber to remove stubborn bits. Then wash with hot water, mild dish soap (never use abrasive detergent), or our Cast Iron Cleaner. Rinse and dry thoroughly. Never scour or use a dishwasher, as this could chip the nice, seasoned finish you’re going for.

    Seasoning

    Once your griddle is clean, slowly warm it up again on your stove. Apply a thin layer of Cast Iron Conditioner or cooking oil. We recommend Cast Iron Conditioner because it has a palm oil base, which boasts a longer shelf life than any other natural oil. Be sure that the entire surface, including all corners, have been coated thoroughly. This will ensure that all surfaces of your cookware will be properly seasoned. This finish helps protect the steel or cast iron from rust and contributes to a nonstick cooking surface. Let your griddle cool, then wipe off excess conditioner or oil with a clean cloth.

    Storage

    After your griddle is clean, dry, and seasoned, you will need to store it in a dry, clean area. You can use one of our carry bags, specifically designed to hold your professional griddle. If you store it in one of these bags long-term, leave the zipper open 2-4 inches so the metal doesn’t “sweat.” This will prevent rusting.

    Pro Tips

    • • Be sure that your griddle is level before cooking, so that any juices or grease will drain properly. To test your griddle’s angle, pour a cup of water on the corner farthest from the grease drain and see where it flows.
    • • Use our grease cup accessory for an easy clean-up.
    • • If you need to adjust the heat on your griddle, do so a little at a time. The metal will heat quickly and cool slowly.
    • • Lightly oil the griddle before each use while it’s heating up. You can use Camp Chef Conditioner or cooking oil.
    • • The steel will continue to antique and darken with each use—it’s okay for it to accumulate a patina.
    • • Rusty, metallic tastes or discolored foods are signs of inadequate seasoning or may result from cooking heavily acidic foods. If this occurs, wash the griddle thoroughly and re-season.
    • • Check out all the cooking accessories we offer to go along with your griddle. You’ll be cooking like a pro in no time.

    Griddle Clean & Care
  • 8 Ways to Step Up Your Tailgate Party This Weekend

    With football season right around the corner (you can almost hear the kickoff whistle echoing from the stadium), it’s time to haul your tailgating gear out of storage. Chances are you have a trusty stove that’s both portable and powerful, a heavy duty cooler for maximum beer-holding capacity, and a collection of tried-and-true recipes. Or maybe this is your first season, and you’re trying to decide what you need to kick things off with a bang. Whether you’re a newbie or a veteran, you can’t reach MVP status until you’re bringing these items and accessories with you every weekend.

     

    1. Extra bag of chips or pack of drinks

    Obviously, you should plan to bring plenty of food. But take special care and set aside an extra bag of chips or six pack. This inexpensive investment can go miles as a peace offering to your tailgate neighbors, especially if you’re a newcomer. Bring it by their tent when you arrive with no strings attached. You’ll make a few friends—and you’ll have someone to ask for help when you realize that you forgot the mustard.

     

    2. Frozen water bottles

    Filling your cooler with ice is great for cans of soda or beer, but when it comes to keeping your food cold, you need something that won’t create a puddle. You can buy ice packs for this—they’ll stay dry and cold. However, the next-level strategy is to pack your cooler with frozen water bottles. Not only will this keep food cool and dry, you’ll also have a half dozen refreshing waters to drink later that afternoon.

     

    3. Wireless thermometer

    As the party chef, you could find yourself pinned to your stove all day, watching the meat like a helicopter mom. If you’re paranoid about hitting the right temperature, you aren’t leaving yourself any time for fun. And last time we checked, tailgating is all about having a good time. With a wireless thermometer, you can enjoy the party and keep a close eye on your meat at the same time. Set the desired temperature, insert the meat probe, listen for the notification alarm, and dominate at cornhole until it’s time to eat.

     

    peanut butter burger4. Crazy condiments

    Ketchup, mustard, mayo, and relish might be classics, but they aren’t your only options. Don’t be afraid to up your tailgating game with some more…experimental condiments. Spice it up with BBQ sauce, teriyaki, ranch, and more. If you really want to score with your guests, bust out a homemade spread like artichoke pesto sauce or peanut butter sauce (yes, peanut butter). Trust us, your taste buds and tailgating buddies will thank you!

     

    5. Outdoor screen and projector

    You might have a portable TV to watch football games throughout the day; an outdoor movie screen takes that concept to the next level of awesome. You’ll need to bring a power source for your projector, but from there it’s a simple set up. Imagine all your favorite games showing on the big screen instead of your tiny computer. You’ll be the star of the parking lot.

     

    6. First Aid Kit

    Okay, okay. This might seem like a no-brainer, but the tailgating pros always put safety first. You never know when you might need some burn ointment after a hot splash of grease or a bandage after flag football gets too competitive.

     

    7. Hand-Washing Station

    Once the eating, drinking, playing, and high-fiving is done, you will want to be able to wash and dry your hands. Hand sanitizer is a quick, easy solution. But you can take it a step further with a bottle of hand soap and a 5-gallon beverage cooler as a wash station. Leave a large bucket underneath (or your dirty dishes tote, see below) to catch the soapy water, and voila! You have yourself a full tailgate hand-washing station. For added convenience, hook a paper towel rack onto your stove or grill.

     

    8. Empty plastic tote or collapsible garbage can

    When the burgers are eaten and the beers are gone, you only want to think about one thing: winning the big game. What you don’t want to think about is washing a pile of dirty spatulas, knives, trays, cutting boards, plates, and other scattered dishes. Cue the empty tub: you can pile everything into it without getting your car dirty, then forget about it until after the game. If you don’t have a spare tote, try using a collapsible garbage can like this one.  Either way, the idea is the same: clean-up in a snap.
