HOW TO GRILL ON A

It's All About The Block!

Posted by Lynsey S

STEP 1: PICK YOUR BLOCK

  • Make sure you pick the right size block for your grill. 
  • A starter size would be about an 8x8x2 inch block

STEP 2: HEAT SLOWLY

  • Slow and steady wins the race on this one, especially the first few times you use the block
  • The Golden Rule of heating a salt black
    • 20 min. on low
    • 20 min. on medium
    • 20 min. on high
  • Sprinkle a few drops of water on the block and if it sizzles and disappears immediately, the block is ready

STEP 3: PLACE STEAK ON THE BLOCK

  • Make sure the whole steak is set on the block for even grilling

STEP 4: FLIP THE STEAK

  • Use a thin metal spatula or tongs, NO PLASTIC!
  • Cooking Time:
    • 1-2 min. per side for any thin steak
    • 4-5 min. per side for any thicker cuts of meat
  • Cook to preferred temperature

STEP 4: CLEAN AND STORE THE SALT BLOCK

  • Let the block cool for 1 hour or until cool to the touch
  • Important tips to keep in mind when getting ready to clean the block
    • Moisten a sponge or scouring pad with NO SOAP
    • Scrub the block to remove any stuck on mess
    • Wipe the block clean with a dry towel and repeat until all the food scraps are gone
  • Leave the block out to air dry and you can store it anywhere
