Blackstone Blackened Salmon via Grill on a Dime

Blackstone Blackened Salmon


  • 6 Salmon Filets
  • 2 Tbsp Oil
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp paprika


  1. Mix together the seasonings in a small mixing bowl.  Place the salmon filets on a plate.  Rub 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil onto both sides of the filets.  Then spoon the seasoning mixture over the salmon and spread it around. Make sure to season both sides of the fish.  I use approximately ½ tablespoon per filet.

  2. Preheat the Blackstone grill over high heat (approximately 400 degrees F).  Spread the remaining vegetable oil onto the grill.

  3. Place the salmon filets on the Blackstone grill on top of the oil.  Let them cook for 3 minutes.  Time them and do not move the fish during this cooking day so that the fish will get blackened.

  4. Then flip the salmon filets and cook for another 3-4 minutes until the salmon reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.

  5. Remove the salmon from the grill and allow it to sit for 5 minutes.  Serve warm and enjoy!

  5. Make sure to separate as much of the ground beef grease from the cooked burger as possible before adding the taco seasoning. Push the excess grease into the grease trap.

  6. Top the cooked burger with the taco seasoning. Add a squirt of water to help combine the ground beef and taco seasoning,

  7. When the meat mixture is cooked, place tortilla chips on a prepared baking sheet pan or serving dish lined with parchment paper.

  8. Top the tortilla chips with the hot beef mixture, and the shredded cheese.

  9. If desired place the whole sheet pan with the chips, burger and cheese onto the the hot Blackstone Griddle and cover with a large dome lid for about 2 – 3 minutes to melt the cheese.

  10. Choose your desired toppings. Sprinkle the toppings like chopped bell peppers, diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and of course, a dollop of sour cream.

Blackstone Breakfast Hash

Blackstone Breakfast Hash via That Guy Who Grills

Blackstone Breakfast Hash


  • 55 oz Frozen Potatoes O'Brien
  • 14 oz sausage
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1/2 red onion
  • green onion


  1. Fire up your Blackstone and grease it up. Once your griddle is warmed up and oiled up turn the heat all the down.

  2. Spread out your frozen potatoes out onto your griddle, you will want to get these going first so they can start to thaw and brown.

  3. In a large bowl whisk together your eggs to be scrambled.  I pour in about 1/2 cup of water into the eggs to help them be fluffier.

  4. While the potatoes are starting to cook cut up your sausage, onion, and bacon.

  5. Push the potatoes to one side on the other side of the griddle, I mixed in my onions at this time into the potatoes on the griddle.

  6. Place the bacon on the opposite side of the griddle and turn that burner up so it will cook faster.

  7. Place the sausage in the middle on the low it will cook fast enough at the lower temp.

  8. Allow these to cook until the bacon is done to the crispiness that you prefer.

  9. Move the meat over into the potato mixture and then pour the egg mixture on the other side of the griddle.

  10. The eggs will scramble up in no time, I move them around with one of the spatulas to make sure they scramble.

  11. Once your eggs are almost done start to mix them up in your potatoes and meat mixture.

  12. When they are well-mixed top with cheese and turn the griddle off.

  13. Serve and enjoy!!
