Impart subtle salty flavor with your Himalayan Salt Cone. Salt cones impart a milder flavor than when using ground salt. Himalayan salt is rich in trace minerals, and has a naturally high moisture content, which allows the cone to be heated or chilled to extreme temperatures. Works wonderfully on the grill, or gas range. The Charcoal Companion Himalayan Salt Cone is a piece of history many years in the making. The cone comes from an enormous pink salt boulder, harvested from ancient salt mines in the far reaches of the Himalayas. That salt boulder was crafted into individual cones. How To Use Your Himalayan Salt Cone: Use your Himalayan Salt Cone to roast chicken or other poultry. Hold the chicken by the wings and lower it onto the cone so that the cone goes into the body cavity. Pull the legs forward so that the chicken stays upright. Grill by indirect heat method, or smoke for 1 to 1.5 hours. For best results, use an instant-read thermometer after 1 hour to check for doneness. When done, remove from cone and enjoy. How To Care For Your Salt Cone: Himalayan salt is naturally antimicrobial and requires no cleansers. After use, simply wash the salt cone under warm water and scrub lightly with a soft brush or sponge. Do not submerge the cone in water. Dry with a paper towel to remove any excess pockets of water in the cone. Air-dry the cone for at least 24 hours before next use. Store salt cone in a dry environment until next use. Your Salt Cone’s Life: Part of the charm of a Himalayan Salt Cone is the naturally occurring irregularities and fissures in the surface of the salt, none of which affect the cooking properties of the mineral. The color and form of each salt cone is unique and will change when heated. With use, the cone may develop more surface depressions and will eventually dissolve completely. Proper care of the salt cone will extend its useful life.
