Salt slab ?

Postby bondobill » Sun Sep 18, 2016 11:29 am

Kids gave me a salt slab last year as a gift.
Anyone ever used one on the grille. ?

Never tried using it yet :dont:
Per instructions Im tempering it in the oven today....slow process the way it looks. :roll:
It came with good instructions on the tempering process but as far as cooking on it all it says is...."Let your creativity be your guide" :scratch:
With that being said, I could be in for a long learning curve :oops: :?

Any suggestions guys

I've never used one Bondo.
Probably for good reason tho lol.
I'm a salt freak, I'd probably chew on that like a Godiva chocolate bar.
Not sure my high bp would like it tho :(

Used mine several times - think of it as a cast iron pan that you use to get a good sear on whatever you are grilling. Continue cooking on the salt block or move it to your grid if you like.

Scallops are outstanding. To get a good sear on them, dry the scallops well with paper towels add a hint of EVOO along with your favorite seasonings

Google salt block and you will get a bunch of info, including how to clean

Be careful to follow the tempering instructions carefully. I did not. I'm an idiot. I had one big block turn into a hundred small ones :laughing7:

Thanks guys
It was in the oven all day..bumping up the temp 50 degrees ever 45 minutes or so. Just turned the oven off after sitting at 500 degrees for a hour. Letting it cool down now. So far so good on the tempering process.
Looking forward to giving it a get go. Not tonight tho.
