Blackstone grill

I just received a Blackstone Grill for my camper and was wondering what oil do you use and why.

On new grills the oil will help season the grates and oiling it will keep it from rusting, any cooking oil of your preference will do.

First off, whoo hoo for you! I bought mine a while back and LOVE it!! You said it's for the camper; what size did you get? 17", 22"? As far as seasoning oil, I can't remember what was recommended for mine but it was something unavailable in our area. I looked up various oils for seasoning a flattop and people use all kinds of stuff. I used corn oil. I made about 5 passes of coating, cooking it in, smoothing it, cook it off; wipe down and repeat. Turned out fantastic. I will say if you got the 22" that my griddle warped and Blackstone sent me a new one so be aware of that. Good luck and have fun!

I bought the 17” model several months ago and seasoned it on the top and bottom in the house oven with several cycles using flaxseed oil. After that, I fired up the Blackstone burner and seasoned the top a couple more times. I now have a well-seasoned non-stick flat top, which we use every outing. After using it, I simply use the spatula to clean it and pour a small amount of Crisco on it while it is still hot and use a paper towel to distribute the oil. One of our favorite breakfast meals is to fry up some Owens sausage. While the sausage is cooking, I put some diced onions in one of the cooler corners and let them sauté. Once the sausage is almost done, I mix in the onions and break several eggs over the mixture and cook until done. Grate some cheese on top and serve.

I actually got the Blackstone Tailgater, which is a grill/griddle combination. I love it. Nice and durable. There is a U-tube video out there, promoting the product, and he recommended flaxseed oil. I got excellent results using it.
You actually buy it at a health food store. The bottle states that it's not for cooking, so I only used it for the seasoning.

Don’t own a Blackstone griddle, but do use cast iron skillets and dutch ovens. I only use Crisco shorting (the white stuff in a can) to season and protect them. The vegetable oils will turn rancid and get sticky if not use often.

I think the idea with seasoning is you put a firm coat of oil into and on the surface. I think, if done properly, any oil will work, as long as you burn it in completely, so it doesn't turn rancid.
However, the flaxseed oil is the closest thing to linseed oil, without being toxic, so you get this hard, smooth coating, much like if you'd varnished it or something. It cleans easily by wiping it with a cooking oil coated paper towel (so far).
The stuff ain't cheap.. anybody wanna buy a 1/2 a bottle (joking)?
The idea of doing it in your oven is a good one, because the burners on the griddle aren't even heat, so you get the center of the griddle well seasoned, and the edges not as good.
I think I'm going to try to put it in my home outdoor grille, so I don't get the smoke in the house.

Flaxseed oil worked great on our Blackstone 17". I seasoned it on our backyard BBG grill - turned up all 5 burners, closed the lid, and let it bake at 500 - worked great.

Word of CAUTION: Blackstone's work so well, that you may end up being the primary chef for every camping trip We love it!
