    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
