    Griddle for weber kettle?

    My brother has 22.5 and 26.75 Weber kettles, I think he'd like a griddle for XMAS. Does anyone make one for these grills? Didn't see anything on the Weber site.

    Thanks.

    I have this one and highly recommend it. Use it on the Performer and the Genesis.

    Here's the one I use: https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/A...08GKDQ/tvwb-20

    If you're looking for something that replaces the actual kettle grate, consider the Weber GBS + griddle insert:

    https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/A...4EQM9Q/tvwb-20
    https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/A...4ELGGK/tvwb-20

    Or the Craycort system with optional griddle insert(s):

    https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/A...8NR4NC/tvwb-20

    Or something like the Arteflame:

    https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/A...SLSB83/tvwb-20

    Or even the MoJoe Griddle:

    The thing is, not all of these work with both 22.5" and 26" kettles. That's why something like the Lodge griddle is a great compromise, it's not grill-specific and works in charcoal grills, gas grills, or even on the stovetop.

    Hey Jim,

    I would go for a simple cast iron griddle (e.g. Lodge) you can move it from kettle to kettle.
    I use one for smashed burgers. Just on top of the org grate.

    Or you you can get maybe one of those systems. Craycort.
    I use one for different purposes. You can substitute each quarter with a griddle or other cool stuff.

    BTW. The best griddle was made by Weber (#8431). Weber discontinued it in 2011. It's rare and hard to get but it's super cool if you have one. :-)
    -> Try to google "Weber 8431' to see how cool the Weber griddle was (is).
    Regards, Jan

    Jim... Here's a few more options for you to consider. I really like the Ballistic Griddle. You can see it on the link Jan provided or here. I would definitely have this one if I hadn't already purchased my Kettle Q a few year ago. If you need an acre of griddle space there is the Mojoe that also fits on the Weber 22" kettle. Good luck.

    If you can befriend someone that operates a burn table, an Arteflame is a cinch to cut out although it would take special software to re-create the center cutouts. The scale would need to be removed from the 1/4" carbon steel before using.

    I could have made a killing burning those things out of scrap metal with zero costs for material.
