    If you are going to make a comment about me not resting the meat, you are not the first.. lol yes I forgot to rest the meat. Please do so if you wish. It was a cold night and a long video production. Please forgive me for not resting the meat……

    Thank you!

  • Is that salt block reusable? Does it … melt… with time?

  • Nice video. Just a bit of advice. remove the steak from the salt block or else your steak will over cook

  • It seems like a neat idea but boy it’s a lot of work… especially in the SNOW! That’s dedication! ?

  • we are manufacturer and exporter of high quality and pure himalayan salt block

  • Some things to note when using a salt block. 1. A hot salt block imparts almost no salt to the meat, just a terrific sear. You will still need to salt your meat as usual. 2. Using the block cold to serve anything WILL impart salt flavor to the food. 3. It will hold that heat for 3-5 hours. So remove the food from it soon as it's done or it will continue cooking. 4. Clean up it easy, using only a scrub brush and a little water. Maybe a scraper if really burnt on. No soap needed at all.

  • For the first half of the video, I thought that was sand in the background. Had this whole perception you were grilling down on the beach lol! Halfway through I realized it was actually snow lol! I immediately got cold and the tropical vibe was gone!

  • First of all, leaving it on the salt block is ruining the steak because it continues to cook. Second, it appears that you cut it too early. It should be removed from the salt block and left to rest for at least 5 minutes before cutting into it.

  • May be a stupid question but can these be used on a Blackstone griddle and just start the burners off on low and gradually bring the temp up to the recommended temp?

  • The whole thing about resting a steak is a bunch of B.S. Eat when you want hot or warm.

  • Why does it matter if you heat the salt block with a grill or in the oven?

  • Looks Awesome! Now I regret telling my wife to skip out of getting me the Salt Block a while back. Won't make that mistake again.

  • Yeah I wish I was there… To slap the hell out of you for not letting that steak rest…

  • Classic Washingtonian pretending to have an accent. And ditto the other comments… get it off the block once you've finished cooking.

  • Hey commenters, with salt blocks you can use the block as a serving/warming tray as well as for cooking. Just trying to save you folks some time from repeating the same comment hundreds of others have already posted.

  • I've been using these for about 3 years now. I primarily use mine for seafood, fish and scallops are great on this, as is asparagus. However I do tend to use it for steak and chops as well. The flavor and cooking is so easy and consistent that I'm not sure I'll ever go back to cooking on a grill surface.

  • Good video. I wished he'd shown us what the cleaning technique is for the salt block. Something tells me you can't just put it in the dishwasher. ?

  • looks like a nice cooking surfice. but for family and friend i think you need a bigger BLOCK to eat on time.

  • I wonder how you could artificially manufacture a salt block? Obviously these are mined etc., millions of years yadayada. But if you can manufacture artificial diamonds, sure you could make salt blocks. Any ideas? Don’t see anything on the net. I wonder if the salt was in big crystals then buried/squashed together or if it was deposited somehow underground as the sea evaporated?? Or both?? Thoughts? A reverse osmosis pump and a press of some kind??

  • Looks great, about to cook steak on ours for the fist time. However I'm not going to leave it on the the block, it's just going to overcook it.
