Seasoning the stone for years of enjoyment
The Island Grillstone™ barbecue accessory can be seasoned like any cast iron pan. Over time, a shiny black patina will cover the surface of the Island Grillstone™. This natural coating enhances flavor and provides a non-stick coating when foods are cooked over high heat. Once the Island Grillstone™ has been seasoned, it should not be cleaned with soap or the flavor enhancement and non-stick properties will be lost.
Wash & Clean the Grillstone
Before initial use, wash the Grillstone with soap and water. Allow it to dry completely. We promise you — this will be the only time you’ll need to do this!
Brush with Olive Oil
Cover the entire surface of the Grillstone with olive oil. Make sure it is completely covered.
Place on Cold Grill
Carefully place the Grillstone on a cold grilling surface, ensuring the surface is level.
Fire it Up
Ignite the barbecue. The easiest step!
Achieve Cooking Temperature
Allow the barbecue to reach outdoor cooking temperature. Be careful not to heat the Grillstone too quickly, which may cause it to break.
Pull out your favorite ingredients and enjoy the evenly tempered, flavor-locking Grillstone. .
Turn Barbecue Off
Both the barbecue and Grillstone cool completely. Be careful — Grillstones retain heat so you’ll want to keep flammable objects away from the hot Grillstone.
Flip the Cooled Grillstone
Turn the fully cooled Grillstone over. The surface is now ready to use the next time. Time to get grilling!
