Blackstone grill connection?

I have never seen a Blackstone Grill in person but am thinking of ordering one on line. Does anyone know if it can be hooked up to my trailer low pressure quick connect or does it have to be used with a built in regulator?

I would call Blackstone to be sure. Their customer service has been very prompt when I called about my home griddle.

Grill or griddle???

As noted, the 17 and 22 inch models have an external regulator that accepts a 1 lb propane bottle, and quick screw connects to griddle fitting. Thus the griddle is LOW pressure.

90 degree adapters, (hose is out of the way)



Straight adapters (hose gets in the way)



Hose and 90 fitting as a combo


I highly advise against getting a hose with a permanently attached fitting for the griddle (they are readily available) because it restricts the use of the hose to this one item. Get a hose with a male nipple and a female coupling and shutoff valve, 12 to 15 ft long.

If the coupling you are looking at has criss cross or diamond patterened knurling that is for the Blackstone, if it has numerous straight grooves cut length wise around the fitting then it is larger and fits some of the Coleman models but not the Blackstone.

To add to this, head to Wal-Mart and go to the garden section where the grills are. This is fall, when the stuff gets clearanced. They do not restock anything, it gets sold for some price. I bought my 17 inch for $54 in 2018 when they were regular priced at about $75. If they have not marked it down, they will, just keep checking back, check several stores. Much better than ordering it and paying full price. You will find a bunch of other stuff marked down too, so you can stock up on aluminum cups for the grease trap, cooking utensil kits, metal domes for heating/melting. Get a pair of Cuisinart outdoor grill shears/scissors. They are very well made and eliminate the need for steak knives, just pass the shears around the table and cut your steak up.

I had the 17” Blackstone. Worked ok. Have it yo my daughter for her trailer when I purchased a two burner Camp Chef 22 model. Larger, more even heat and less susceptible to wind issues. I have a 4 burner model at home in a custom enclosure and it is also the best griddle I’ve ever used and I tried them all.

I agree with the Camp Chef products being superior. I am looking for a second unit so I can just keep one in the trailer all the time.

This is the one we use with our 22" Blackstone set-up for camping. This is also what we use for our propane firepit as well and we even have a splitter so we can have both plugged in at the same time! It replaced our previous Camp Chef set-up with griddle. It is so much lighter and the attached hood make this a far superior unit for camping IMO.

I would NEVER go back to a grill after using this one on the road for a little over 2 years now

We bought the 22 griddle last month on Amazon. I love cooking on it. I have it hooked up to my onboard propane tank, just as a poster above outlined. Works great. Cooks food very quickly.
