  • Seared Tuna on a Himalayan Salt Block

    It's late November, Thanksgiving is looming and the winter weather has arrived early. But those of us who love to grill will still find a way to get outside and cook up something special, even if the weather is less than ideal. With that being said, the weather does pose a challenge - the colder temps inhibit the high heat searing we all love from our grills. An easy solution? A salt block. Salt blocks are great to use any time of the year, indoors or out, but they're perfectly suited for these colder temperatures and to use on your grill. Think cast iron - the lovely black pans that last for generations and are so heavy they just sear so well. The same principle holds true with a salt block - it's so heavy, thermally speaking (and by weight, of course) that it retains heat extremely well, which in turn will allow it to sear extremely well.

Many of you, I’m sure, are like me and grill year-round, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t also prepare your grill for lower temperatures and nasty weather. Most of us are familiar with how corrosion (rust) can degrade the performance and lifetime of your grill - while high quality materials like 304 stainless steel are very corrosion resistant, that doesn’t mean they’re impervious to the elements. Not only does moisture stress metals, but grease build-up can create pressure points where corrosion can build and spread.

  • How to Convert a Wood Fire Pit to Gas

    Many of us are familiar with wood burning fire pits, whether you’ve got a permanent masonry fire pit stoned into a patio or a mobile metal fire pit - building a fire to gather your friends and family is something we all enjoy.

    However, many urban developments are restricting the use of wood fire pits for safety reasons. Beyond that, wood fire pits require a lot of extra hassle - having wood available to burn can be an issue, if you do keep wood on hand and store it outdoors I often find it’s wet and hard to get a fire started. Once you’ve your fire burning you also have to deal with smoke - it's always frustrating when the smoke burns directly into you or your guests’ faces, and once you’re finished you’ll smell like a campfire for the rest of the day.
