Why Every Backyard Needs a Char-Griller® Flat Iron® Griddle

At Char-Griller, we think that every backyard needs more than one outdoor cooking tool. Traditional barrel grills, offset smokers, AKORN Kamados, and griddles all have a place in your cooking arsenal.

Traditional charcoal grillers usually want to stick to only charcoal as their fuel of choice meaning that barrel grills, smokers, and kamados are the tools of the trade that they gravitate to. We’re here to tell you that it’s time to consider adding a griddle to your backyard and we’re going to prove it to you.

1. Cook Any Meal

From fluffy pancakes and perfectly crispy bacon for breakfast, Philly Cheesesteaks with an expertly toasted bun, Shrimp stir-fry and fried rice for dinner, you can do it all on a Flat Iron Gas Griddle.

Easily create different heat zones on your griddle to cook everything at once. Knobs that turn a full 180 degrees give you ultimate control over just how hot you want each section meaning you can toast up some tortillas and sear steak for fajitas at the same time.

2. Cook Any Time

Powerful gas burners mean that the griddle surface heats up quickly and evenly, getting you ready to cook in no time. Create heat zones on your griddle so you can cook everything at once and ensure each part of the meal is hot and ready to go at the same time.

Thanks to the easy slide out grease drawer, clean-up is fast and easy too. Just scrape all the oil and food debris into the grease cup hole, remove the grease cup, and dump the whole thing. Don’t forget to add a light coating of oil to keep your griddle surface protected until the next cook.

3. Cook Anywhere

Griddle on the go with the Flat-Iron’s folding cart construction on the two and four burner* models. The easy to collapse cart makes packing the griddle up to take to a tailgate, event, the beach, or your favorite park easy! The added wheels help you position the griddle right where you want it so you can get cooking. 

Looking to hit the great outdoors and go camping? The Portable Flat Iron is compact enough to take with you to your favorite campsite. Plus nothing beats eating hot and fluffy pancakes next to a lake while you sip your morning coffee.

*Premium 4 Burner does not have a folding cart construction.

 4. They’re Fun to Use

One of the first things all the Char-Griller staff at HQ said after cooking on the Flat Iron for the first time was “Man, that thing is FUN to cook on!” Rarely do indoor kitchens get a flat top griddle surface to cook on and the Flat Iron makes that restaurant-style cooking method accessible to everyone. Plus it gets the mess of bacon grease and stir-fry out of the kitchen. Win-Win.

At Char-Griller, we love charcoal grills, but we definitely think that the Flat Iron Gas Griddle is an essential part of every backyard griller’s tool kit. How else are you going to make bacon, pancakes, fried rice, and so much more? If you’re on the fence, it’s time to take the plunge.
