  • SS griddle for cooking over an open fire.

    Made these for a customer from 1/4" 304, some 1" 304 pipe and 1" solid steel bar for the legs. For cooking over an open fire...Bob

    I have something I made from an old disc plow and was considering some stainless like that. No problem with it warping over the fire? The last thing I made for my fire pit out of stainless was 9ga expanded stainless and the stuff warped like crazy. Made me crazy how much it warped from the fire.

      I am sure it will warp but that's what he wanted. We talked it through when he ordered it. Guess he can turn it over and cook on the other side and warp it back.:** ...Bob

        I was looking at something similar at one of the local hardware stores, but made out of cold rolled carbon steel. I asked my metal supplier of they can get cold rolled, he really didn't what what I was talking about. But it seems you can get cold rolled plates online fairly easily, it's just almost as cheap to buy the one from the hardware store. I have never descaled a steel plate with a torch, but I might have to look into it.

          35 years ago when I was in my dads trailer business and we got slow in the winter we would build griddles for the concession trailers. Big like 2' x 4' and out of 3/4" black iron plate. Nothing fancy just run the 36 grit wheel over it, add Crisco and go...Bob

            I really enjoy cooking over my fire pit, guess it's some sort of therapy for me. Like I had mentioned, I have that old disc plow that I made into a sort of wok and it's great. But sometimes is like to have a flat surface. I need to just go ahead and put that on my to-do list and get it done. <br />

            This certainly won't be for commercial use, so you think 3/4" will be necessary? I'm looking to make my griddle about 36 X 18 and a smaller one about 18 X 12. The ones at the store look like 1/4" plate and they have a criss-cross vertical supports welded on the bottom side. <br />
            <br />
            I was leaning more towards the 1/4" plate of similar design as the ones I've see , with about 1 1/2" lip around three side and a handles. But I tend to over engineer things like the rest of you maniacs do.

              Maniac Maniac, I remember that song We added a 1/4 x 2 lip for the trailers. Give the 1/4" a try can't hurt. You can always build another one...Bob
