Restoring the Blackstone

Just a little over two years ago, we added a Blacktone griddle to our outdoor cooking arsenal. It got some use and then winter came along and it sat unused. And then forgotten. Abandoned and lonely. Even though I had a cover for it, it started to rust. I knew I had to reseason it,… Continue reading Restoring the Blackstone

Lil Pizza Party
