    Griddle For the YS640

    Has anyone gotten the griddle for the YS640? I've seen the videos, just wanted to get some first hand reviews on it.

    I have a Yoder and I must admit that I didn't know there was a griddle for it. Is this it?

    What would you use it for?

      That's the one, I saw it on All Things BBQ web page, they showed a demo of it. Just didn't know if it was worth it.

    I don't have the griddle but with the grill grates I sometimes set my cast iron pan or griddle on top of them and it work great. I'm sure the griddle would be pretty much the same.

      Yeah, the video on All Things BBQ was pretty generic, just thought I'd get a popular consensus on it.

    I use a cast iron skillet on mine. I also have a Lodge griddle but I don't use it too often.

      Rarely use my Yoder for high temp. Twice I have done a reverse sera on some rib eyes and once I seared a prime rib roast. I keep it at 350 or below and use my grill or a cast iron skillet.

        When I bought my YS-640 I bought the griddle thinking I'd use it a lot. I've used it twice. What I got (because I bought it so long ago) was a Weber griddle. Flat on one side and raised on the other. I've used the flat side twice to do smash burgers or cook bacon while doing pseudo "reverse sear" burgers concomitantly when I've wanted bacon fat to sauté onions or something. It's nice because it's big, however, not necessary by any standard although I've enjoyed using it and I am fortunate to have storage space. I don't routinely use it for reverse searing. I do reverse sear steaks frequently on the Yoder, however, I use the flat side of grill grates to get more Maillard reaction surface.

        Hope this helps.

          Thanks, I’ve been doing the same with my grill grates, but I’m a sucker for all the accessories, thanks for putting it all in perspective though!

          I’m a sucker for gadgets too and when I bought the YS-640 i went to All Things BBQ to pick it up and figured what was $60 more bucks. Since I bought the grill and a half pallet of pellets! 😉😃

        I'm a sucker for the gadgets too. My 640s arrives next week - with a griddle!
