Salt Plates

Himalayan Pink Salt is 250 million years old and originates from the Himalayan mountains.

Grilling on a pink salt plate sears and browns the proteins of the steak and melts the fat, while the salt dehydrates the surface and seasons the meat. The taste is amazing.

BBQ Salt Plates can be reused many times over as long as you clean them gently (never use soap). Try one now.
