I have had my Blackstone for 2 years and the bearing mod installed for about 1 year, I use the oven once a week with few exceptions 52 weeks a year. Two weeks ago I started to hear a high pitch whine when the table turned not often but once every 2 minutes. I looked into lubricants specifically high temperature food grade lubricants.  I found one on amazon that is good to 475F, given the distance between the flame and and the support brace the bearing is on I was not worried about temperature s above that.

One more thing  clean the old sleeve bearing and lube it as it is a close fit. Just wipe the inside of the sleeve to clean it with a paper towel and put some of the lubricant on the shaft before you reassemble (thin layer with a piece of wax paper) . Clean off the protruding shaft after you reassemble.

Thanks old_alex! I also did the bearing mod when I first got the Blackstone and I left the rotisserie on overnight woke up to the same high pitched noise  haha. If I didnt change up to the stone only mod a few weeks ago I would totally do this!
