How to BBQ on a salt block

Step 1: Heat slowly, especially the first time to prevent the salt from cracking. 20 minutes on low temperature and 20 minutes on medium before you reach the optimal cooking temperature.

Step 2: Sprinkle some drops of water on the salt block to check the temperature. If they sizzle you are ready to go.

Step 3: Oil the surface you are going to cook the food on.

Step 4: Cook your food like on a normal cooking surface. Use a metal kitchen tool, not plastic. You can leave the block on the barbecue and cook on the surface for several hours.

Step 5: After cooking, let it cool down completely to room temperature.

Step 6: Clean the block by scraping off food residues and wipe it clean with a sponge. Try to keep the block as dry as possible. The less water the better as water dissolves the salt.

Step 7: Store the block at room temperature.
