I recently received this email from a happy Virginia customer describing his first use of his new Mojoe Griddle. He beautifully describes some of the finer points of the Mojoe's amazing cooking performance:
I just finished un-boxing the griddle and did my first seasoning. I AM BLOWN AWAY ALREADY.
I did this first seasoning on my Weber Kettle. Washed it off in the sink with soap as instructed while I was getting a full chimney of coals, plus some I had in the kettle from my last cook, nice and hot.
After sitting the Mojoe on top of the Kettle, I meticulously used my infrared thermometer to measure temps to see how fast it got up. It's about 38 degrees outside and it was up to 350 in about 2-3 minutes. Very impressed.
I have a particular seasoning process, but I still followed your directions. Salted it then oiled it. But then I used some green onions, bell pepper, and white onions with some oil and basically lathered them into the steel for about 10-15 minutes until they were basically black. The Mojoe was up to around 625 degrees at this point and the temp barely dropped when I put the onions on.
After doing this, I decided to make my favorite. SMASHBURGER. Rolled come ground beef into a ball and smashed the crap out of it with my huge spatula (you should get one, it's amazing) parchment paper and a heat resistant glove that's safe up to 700 degrees. I kid you not, while pressing that burger down onto the Mojoe, I could feel the heat coming thru the patty into the spatula and into my glove. It didn't burn me, but I have never been able to feel any kind of heat wearing those gloves even when I grab a basket of hot coals out of my Pit Barrel Cooker.
I didn't want the burger to burn so I flipped it about 45 seconds earlier than usual and OMG IT WAS PERFECT. That sear was unlike anything I've ever gotten from cast iron or my Blackstone griddle. Other methods I've used simply did not compare. And again, it was in the 30s! And even better was that the spot temped out at nearly 480 degrees. Barely any drop at all from a cold piece of meat. My Blackstone would have been down in the 200s.
Eating it was a joy. In fact, I didn't even bother putting it on a bun, I just gobbled it down right off the griddle top. Then did the final seasoning/cleaning and removed it over to my Jumbo Joe to cool so I could extinguish the coals on my 22.5" Kettle.
I am so very impressed and this was really just a seasoning/test cook. I can't wait to make my first video. Still working on a logo, an intro logo for my channel, and to get a couple more tripods in. At that point I'll start posting and there will be a lot of videos made using this griddle.
Again, thank you so much for the lip and for inventing such a fantastic product. I can't wait to get many many years of use. Hopefully lifetimes :).
Have a great day.
