Hackstone Griddle

The grill grates on my old propane grill are melting away, so I decided to replace them with a griddle surface.



It’s not done yet. Still need to remove the mill scale, close in the back edge, and then season.

Update: begin seasoning!

What material is that griddle surface?! Did you cut/weld it up?!

It is 1/4" plate with some 1 x1 angle on the sides for a lip. I cut a 1" strip off the back edge to get it to fit my grill and then welded the strip back in between the angle iron sides. I stripped the mill scale with a vinegar soak and wire brush. I bought the metal as scrap for under $20! The handles are unnecessary but I had the two old tow hooks laying around anyway.

I am totally bookmarking this project and will try to upcycle some dead bbq grills in the spring!

That 1/4" plate is just plain old sheet steel? Seasoned for protection…

I love the notion of upcycling old grills because, let’s face it, they don’t last as long as they should.

Saw this grill frame turned into a movable mitre saw stand the other day…

…but there’s plenty of other ideas…

I get it.

I removed a few resuable things from my last grill. Thermometers, flue, spare burner, large heatproof handles, etc.
The last thing I did was stand back and look at the wheeled frame and ask myself what I could do with it. Which i decided was nothing that day. And so i sent the pieces to our scrap metal recyclers.
. Since then my workbench collapsed. Leg corners broke. Now i wisht I had seen this.

Just now seeing this, awesome idea! My grill is 2x bigger than I ever need, so I guess turning one side into a griddle is now on my todo list.
