Lava grills: what it is and what they happen?

Many restaurants are dreaming of cooking vegetable, fish and meat dishes in the kitchen, which will smell with a smoke, as if they had just removed from the fire.

    The product consists of a lattice, a pallet where the stones of volcanic lava are stacked, and electric Tan or gas burners that provide uniform heating of stones. Lava breeds, besides what they distribute heat over the grill surface, also absorb fat, which dripping from above.

    Falling on hot stones, fat melts, smoke, at the expense of what and fumuring of products, and finished dishes are soaked with an appetizing aroma. No fat, butter is not required.


    Despite the imaginary simplicity, lava grills spread together. Depending on the power source, they are two species.
