Hibachi at Home

If you haven't jumped on the Blackstone griddle train yet, you might want to consider adding one to your outdoor appliance lineup. You can use it the same way you use your charcoal or gas grill to cook hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken breasts, steak, and so on. Plus, as a (huge) added bonus, you can whip up everything from pancakes to fried rice. Here are some of our favorite Blackstone recipes to try for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Buttermilk Pancakes

I used to stand at my stovetop and flip pancakes on a frying pan one at a time. Thanks to the Blackstone, that responsibility now falls to my husband, who can pour a dozen pancakes onto the griddle at a time. These never miss.
