5 Great Reasons To BBQ With Lava Rocks

Cooking on hot rocks is one of the oldest forms of cookery, and it has been enjoying a revival in recent years as modern chefs are waking up to its many advantages.

Not only will you be enjoying reconnecting with the way man has been eating since time immemorial, but barbecuing with  lava rocks also fits perfectly into today’s healthy-eating lifestyle and, to boot, the flavours are hard to beat.

Originally the rocks would have been heated to high temperatures over open fires, but today’s cooks use a gas burner. Lava rocks are sourced from volcanic landscapes and are able to stay hot for an hour.

Lava rocks work well on an electric smoker as well.

1) A BBQ with lava rocks is healthy

Weight watchers, rejoice: a BBQ with  lava rocks  doesn’t require the use of any oils or other fats, leading to a healthier, lighter way of eating. The naturally occurring fats in meat also disperse and have space to drain away thanks to the natural porousness of the rock, Check out this blog

2) A BBQ with lava rocks is efficient

Lava rocks maintain their heat for an hour at a time, making them an incredibly efficient way to grill meat, with maximum use of the energy produced by the gas burner.
Not only will this save you money on gas bills but it’s also great for the environment.

3) Steak over Stone cooks evenly

No more will you have to suffer with that bane of a barbecue cook’s life, the steak that’s charred on the outside and shocking pink within. Lava rocks can’t be beaten in terms of even distribution of heat, and their porousness lends itself beautifully to a steak that’s perfectly cooked throughout. The heat can be so intense that you might like a pair of 500C heat resistant gloves to keep your hand cool. click the link to see these awesome Kevlar & Silicone practicle gloves

4) The flavours are fantastic

Unlike other forms of grilling, such as those involving charcoal and wood, barbecuing with lava rocks doesn’t involve overpowering flavours that will detract from the naturally delicious taste of the meats you cook. And the same is true of any vegetables you might cook – the natural sweetness of aubergine and courgette will come to the fore when grilled over hot stones.
