Himalayan salt brick on the cheap

I came a across cooking on Himalayan salt blocks on the web and wanted to try it. I searched here and saw some eggers have been playing around with them.

Funny thing is I showed my wife a Utube where they are cooking shrimp on them and a few days later I have a 8x4x2 4.4 pound Himalayan salt brick sitting on the counter. Where did she get it? The local horse tack shop (supplement area) as a 6 dollar salt lick. Horses are licking this stuff on the cheap while us humans are paying plenty a penney to cook on it.

Yea, it might not be cooking grade, there are some cracks that I am sure will cause problems sooner or later. But I have done shrimp, chicken tenders, and am planning a Haddock fillet tonight. The taste is great if you make sure it is hot enough to do real cooking and the meat doesn't just sit there and simmer (salty).

I will definetly have my wife pick up more bricks the next time she is at the tack shop for greater grill coverage. When they break I will drill some holes in the pieces thread with rope and send them to the barn to fulfill thier origonal purpose.
