Game Day Sandwich Showdown: Philly Cheesesteak VS. New England Lobster Roll

Blackstone News

It’s Game Day! And while two teams duke it out on the playing field, two sandwiches will be battling it out for the pride of their hometowns. Philly Cheesesteak vs. New England Lobster Roll… Hot n’ cheesy vs. Fresh and easy. Who will you pick?

We cooked up both of these titans of the taste buds on our Blackstone griddle, and boy – do they pack flavor!

First, the Philly Cheesesteak has thinly sliced ribeye, caramelized on high heat. Add to that onions, peppers, and a load of provolone cheese melted to perfection! All of this piled high onto a toasted hoagie roll!

Then, with the freshest catch from the seas, the New England Lobster Roll has intense flavor with a hint of lemon and parsley. Add to that just a pinch of cayenne and smoked paprika. Now, just one bite of this buttery hero and you’ll be in heaven!

So who will it be? Are you #TeamPhillyCheesesteak or #TeamLobsterRoll? Only you can decide the champion of the Blackstone! Voting closes right after the Big Game. That means you’ve got plenty of time to cook them up for family and friends. Have a blast and may the best Sandwich win!

    Is there an accessory to increase the height of the sides and are there any good ideas for a “dam” to keep food from rolling into the grease trough? We have cooked on this thing almost exclusively ever since we got it!! We have a huge front porch Its great for this. The heat disperses well before reaching the ceiling allowing us to enjoy the fantastic porch!

      That is a good question. I have not been asked that before. There is not accessory to heighten the sides. As for the dam, if you wanted to put a piece of wood in front trough to avoid food rolling in. I have not heard of someone having a problem with this before.

      I hope this helps.

    2. Hi Jeff, my back patio is pretty uneven so I use a couple washers under the feet of the griddle top to even it out.

    I have seen that there is a shelf accessory that you can get for the flattop grill. Where can I find this? It wraps around and folds down for storage so cover still fits???

    1. Venessa Pixton says:

      That is all correct. Here is a link to the surround table….it is an awesome accessory, especially if you find yourself needing more space when you entertain.

    Hello I have the patio oven that I love by the way. But for my last two cooks. The wheel stops turning. The rotisserie motor is functionning when I take it off. I’m using the ac adapter all of the time. I didn’t see anything in the troubleshooting section for this issue. Can you please help. Thank you

    1. Venessa Pixton says:

      Karl, I am sorry to hear this. Please call us and we can talk you through some trouble shooting…here are the steps:
      1. Remove the rotating tray…was is difficult to get it in or out?
      2. Remove the rotating tray and turn upside-down, with a carpenter square check to see if the tray is level.
      3. Check to ensure that the rotating tray is not rubbing on anything as it turns.

    I purchased the 36 inch griddle from Lowe’s.
    It work fantastic for about two weeks. I was in hog heaven, reliving the glory days of youth making steak and cheese subs, and breakfast and experimenting with stir fry. Then the regulator went bad, and I couldn’t get enough gas to heat up the griddle. Lowes replaced the entire unit. The new unit worked well during the initial seasoning process, but now that I’m ready to cook, I’m not getting enough gas pressure. I’ve changed to a new tank, and still no better. Is there a better regulator out there to get me back in the griddle game?

    1. Venessa Pixton says:

      Thank you for reaching out to us. One thing to definitely check is the air gates. We leave the air gates adjust to be set at the customers preference. At the front of each burner there is a small silver screw you can loosen and slide the metal gate more open or closed to control the air to gas ratio. We use the griddle with the air gates half closed (if it is a windy environment we close it a little more). Try this and if you need a picture we can email you one. Also the regulators have a safety feature where if the gas is not turned off in the correct method (burners first, then tank) it will lock down to prevent much gas flow. Often times if you detach the regulator and wait 10-15 minutes it will reset itself and should work fine again. If you feel that you need a replacement regulator after you try these things, please email us at [email protected] or call 435-252-3030 x 1.
