It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Pink Salt & a WOK

The Queen got me a pink salt slab as well as recently a wok from thewebrestaurantstore for father's day and I have really enjoyed both!  Don't forget to warm the salt slab up slowly or it will crack.  Pepper only needed!  Salt is absorbed from the salt block. And the wok seasoning process was quite the tutorial.  

Also posted some recent cooks.

Bon Appetit!

    You have been busy. Got to ask, are you warming up ribs in that 7th pic? All looking good.

    Himalayan Salt Block Works great with many cuts of meat. 

     Steaks, boneless breasts, scallops, fish in general and pork chops.  Few others I forget about.  Enjoy your wok also.

      How to use, Richard Fl

    There are 3 or 4 vendors out there.  I have an 8"x8"x2" that lives to cook on my small.  I would go for the cheeper model and make sure they will stand behind it if it eggsplodes within a month or so.  That has happened here once I know of and it was immediately replaced.  Probably some water in it.I place on my small direct and bring it up to temp with the egg 450-500F.  Used to let cool and wash in sink when I first got it a few years ago, now I just wipe with a wet paper towel when still warm, let it cool, rub with a wire brush when cool and the next time I cook the top becomes the bottom.  Also I store it in the house as the humidity here in Florida will slowly dissolve the block.  If it ever breaks I plan or grinding the pieces for table salt.Recipe Type: Help
