Well, last night I ordered the Camp Chef SG100 griddle. I did not buy the triple burner stove because I think I can make one a whole lot cheaper.
Once I get the griddle I can measure up and draw what I want to build. Then I can price out the material.
Z, do you or any others that own the Camp Chef 3 burner have any major likes/dislikes of the stove? Or things you would change about it?

Thanks in advance for the help!
Mike

Congrats blues brother on your new griddle, you’re going to love it!!

I love my camp Chef 3-burner stove. I’ve had it for several years and taken it on many camping trips. It’s very versatile and easy to transport. It fits in my camper storage compartment perfectly.

Likes: Folding legs, folding side shelves, powerful burners, light and easy to transport.
I got this case for it, which has wheels and very easy to roll around

I also have the grill top for those lazy days when I don’t feel like messing with charcoal

Again, it’s very versatile and has many…many uses.

Dislikes: The knobs are harder to turner now, but that’s after 7-8 years of use and the paint on them wore off, so I can’t tell what position they’re in. Also the bottom metal shield is thin and tends to rust often, but no worries, it’s easily painted. No big deal or major issues though.

The SG 100 Griddle fits the stove very well and the bottom heat diffusers align perfectly with the burners

If you decide to build your own stove, make sure you measure the distance between the diffuser plates. The middle burner on this stove is not centered and it’s closer to the left burner. Therefore, the diffuser plates are welded the same way.
Good luck, and please let me know if you need any additional info.

I got the griddle top the other day. Looks real nice.
After thinking about it a while and finding a pro 90 camp chef stove for $200 I decided to not build a stove...yet. gonna play with the store bought first. The stove will be here Friday! Pics forthcoming.

Looking forward to your review of the whole setup and pics of your future cooks!

I just did fried rice and veggies on my Blackstone tonight using leftover Christmas ham & turkey. Yummilicious! Of course I didn't take any pics, so it didn't really happen. Embarassed

I am really enjoying the camp chef griddle. I have not really cooked anything special on it yet. Did some smash burger sliders, a pound of bacon, sausage, hash browns. My favorite so far has been the corn bread pancakes.
Cooking on a griddle is alot like D.O. Cooking... keep the temp low. And don't try to rush it.
I will post pics later.
Thanks for all the help and advice.
