    I want one too.

    I haven't researched them yet.

    I'm looking at next year sometime.

    Great video, good information here.

    I went in thinking that I really wanted the Blackstone and now I think I have switched.

    Just send me your phone number so I can blame you when my wife figures out how much I spent.

    You have any tips on hashbrowns? I've been having issues where parts are getting burnt and others are mushy. You cook it at a low temp?

    The 36"?

    That's a great price.

    It may be worth getting just because it's so cheap.

    My buddy has had one for yrs. We used to use it all the time. Was great. Now he has shit piled on top of it. He's like that though. Gets the latest thing, uses it for a while, then it's tossed aside. He asked me if I wanted it, but already have a huge grill ( with a cast griddle grate) and a big firepit smoker grill.

    I'm still learning the potatoes myself. Same issues, some are great and crispy, some are burnt, and some are under done.

    Haven't mastered them yet.

    36" is way too big unless you're a Duggar

    Grate them, squeeze all the moisture you can out of them, use butter and let them cook, don't poke them. Flip once.

    I've watched a ton of videos this afternoon and the best advice like yours is just to flip it once and let it cook.

    I admit i get antsy and play with it and flip it all around.

    Ever make German fried potatoes? Bake some extra potatoes, dice them and fry them in bacon grease and butter.
