    Hey guys
    A while ago I bought a "blackstone" 36 inch griddle

    Great cooking top, but the grease trap is junk
    It has a small trough on the front, but especially when cleaning it, stuff just runs over and out, over the knobs, down the stainless steel front, through my flip flops and onto my toes

    They must know about this because they redesigned the top with a rear grease trap now...and I can get one for only $149.95

    So rather then forking out that much, I decided to buy 4 foot of 1/8 inch, 1 inch wide flat stock and went to town


    I still need to hit it with a flapper disc, and add a little pipe to the edge...I might even box in the end but I'm happy with it

    It even holds water (insert milodon oil pan joke here)

          I decided to box in the end, and weld a pipe on
          The pipe is now the only way out for the grease

          Still need to clean it up with a flapper wheel, but so far I'm happy (even though the car isn't square)

          Made breakfast on it today, figured I wont get more grease out of anything other than thick cut bacon...grease trap worked great.

            When I started welding at Joy Mining I made conveyor structure. I made the right side, another guy the left and another welded them together. We were all 20ish. We would squirt ketchup from ketchup packs on the hot welds. The whole shop would smell like BBQ. You could look around and see everybody eating their lunch by 8 or 9 AM.
            We also used a welding rod oven to make baked potatoes. In at 7, fully cooked by 11:00.
