    Update on the salt block.....cooked about 5 times on it and it has not exploded, except the flavor of my steaks and shrimp have been outstanding along with the tenderness. Found a steak seasoning that is salt less and its the perfect combo. The heat up time on the grill is about 30 min though is the down side but i do this for a hobby and something different so its worth it.

    I'm curious as to the heat up time and procedure.

    Would take longer in an oven, or less time? Is there a minimum acceptable pre-heating block temperature for use? Etc

    Would love to see some pics of it in action some time!

    okay. if you can pan fry a hamburger patty, half the battle is won.

    i grew up in college with Hawaiian buds. cant deny/confirm this, but i remember them telling me most MocoLoco are made with a canned beef gravy. okay. that i dont own.

    here is what i did. my friend gave me some organic burgers.

    i pan fried them rare. very rare. on cast iron. i put them aside and put a bit of butter in the pan. melted it, dumped in some flour and made a roux. then i poured in some homemade beef stock i had frozen. it tasted muted, so i added a spoon of beef bullion paste. the color got good and the taste came up. it got thickened and i put the patties back in to finish cooking and to stay warm.

    big pile of rice!! i then pan fried an egg in a neighboring non stick pan. covered it, because i think it looks way kickass "sunny side up".. once done..i put a patty on the rice..spooned some gravy over it..layed the egg on top..peppered it. i served it with a side of cabbage kimchee.

    my wife was pleasantly surprised. that pic is my wife's..mine was uglier with double patties and double eggs..and a lot more gravy :).

    oh, chopping something green and fresh on top before serving..i think green onions are perfect.

    the locals squeeze ketchup and siracha all over it. seriously.

    I made some tomato sauce a couple days ago from all the tomatoes coming out of the garden so last night we decided to make some pizza. Homemade dough and sauce, and most the toppings were out of the garden too.

    My first foray into smoking ribs on my pellet grill. The ones on the pic still had about an hour to go. Turned out pretty good...

    Seared each side for 5 minutes, then baked for a total of 1.5 hours @ 350, adding gravy into the pan at the 1 hour mark.

    I put some beef short ribs in the slow cooker on top of some oranges, onions, jalapenos, chipotle peppers. Then covered them in some sauce I made mixing beer, bbq sauce, honey, rice vinegar, mustard, and some spices. The house is starting to smell awesome. On another notes, beef prices are ridiculous, I can't wait to slaughter my cow!

    Pretty shitty dull looking pic

    Thanks Dennis. By far the best dough I've made in a while. Thanks again for the low down!
