What kind on oil do you use to cook with on a Blackstone griddle?
So what is the best oil to use on a Blackstone?
Since the Blackstone cooks at a very high temperature, you can't use just any type of oil. You need to use a high heat oil, meaning that it has a high smoke point. My favorite oil to use is avocado oil.
In addition to avocado oil, you can also use lard, tallow, coconut oil, ghee and butter.
Stay away from vegetable oils, canola oil, soy bean oil, peanut oil, seed oils (grapeseed, walnut, sesame seed), and olive oil. These oils either have lower smoke points or are high in omega 6 fatty acids which are pro-inflammatory.
