I wonder if Matt Pittman is going to dump the Loco griddle brand ambassador title. He had a few videos awhile back using his and then suddenly stopped. Wonder if this is why?
That’s what I’m expecting. He dropped an IW XL video last week. I’m expecting a Flatrock one very soon. Maybe Wednesday.I would not be at all surprised if Traeger sent him a "cease and desist" notice when they started manufacturing their own flat tops. They will probably provide him with a free Traeger FlatRock and he will be singing its praises soon.
I assume it was a corporate error. They aren’t supposed to have shipped for sale yet. I assume it was shipped in error and this guys dad works at the store and viola. 🤷🏼♂️I saw that and I was curious how of all people "camp kyle", who has 5k followers, snagged the first Flatrock on the market.
what could it be??!?! LOLI received an email today from Traeger mentioning a new product announcement coming Feb 22nd.

There are a number of reviews that have come out on the Flatrock griddle. It has some features that are impressive.
I like the appearance of the griddle.
I like the hinged top cover so you do not have to pick it up and then store it. Although the 3-burner griddle is the same size as most 4-burner models, the burners are U-shaped so you are essentially getting 6 heat tubes under the steel plate, even though you only get to control three gas jets. This should help temperature uniformity across the surface of the griddle.
I like the grease management system- front and center.
I also like that the design of the grill minimizes the effect of wind. I have always had difficulty using a gas grill on windy days; the Flatrock might lessen that problem.
Since the Flatrock costs 2-3 times as much as many competing griddles, I have not decided whether the features are worth the extra $$$, but as I ponder the decision on whether to purchase a flat top gas griddle this spring, Traeger has certainly complicated my analysis with their announcement of the Flatrock.
