Has anyone used a Himalayan Salt Block?

I just got one to try. Anyone ever used one on the Egg and how did you do it? Thanks!

    There are a few threads from the last few days. Hit the search function and it should be easy to find. 

    Put it in the egg when you are bringing the egg up to temp. You dont want to throw a cold block onto a hot egg. Also, dont put a hot stone in the sink unless you want it to crack. Anything else will be in the other threads..

    There were two threads on this earlier this week. They may be a few pages down but you should be able to find them. At least three people have used them but I'm not one of them.

    @villiage idiot



    What are the advantages to using this type of salt block vs simply using salt up fronton a cook?


     I have read the other threads, not much mention on why we need them.

    We don't need them.  They just add some flavor and moisture for the dish. Kinda like using cedar or alder planks for salmon.  Not needed but great flavor enhancement IMHO.
