Anyone tried this - went to a restaurant last night and had a VERY nice 10oz steak cooked on one - 400 C these are heated to- great fun too in a group
Looks great - I bet that was an experience.
One drawback though with a group steak is that it tends to get cooked for the person who likes it most well done. I usually eat mine blue and so i am usually in the minority...
They have a Pompeii steakhouse close to us where you cook your steaks on lumps of lava from China. We tried it when it first opened with some friends and we wern't too impressed, steak starts off ok and if you're a slowish eater like me, or enjoying the conversation, the steak ends up overcooked.
What this place suggested is you chop it up into say halfes or thirds and cook each bit as you like it which worked good for me.... lot of people like their steaks cooked rare - so rare that in an emergency you could call a vet and revive it
And you folks call ME the caveman. Cooking on a rock? I have also been with friends and family to a couple of these "style" restaurants. I just don't understand the concept of paying for the privilege of cooking my own meal. Same as those "Dude Ranches" where city folks PAY the rancher to come and work for him. ANY time any of you want to do some gardening or decorating you be sure to let me know. I won't charge you much and we provide complimentary tea and or coffee. Keep Smokin!
