My mandolin slicer made quick work of thin slicing up the two potatoes.
The potato slices were tossed with EVOO.
I had to do these in 3 batches. The first batch is on the salt block which is at 450 degrees.
After 5 minutes it was time too turn the potato slices.
After turning the chips they were seasoned with back pepper and finely chopped rosemary. The chips took about 4 more minutes to finish.
The chips were served with a rib-eye steak.
I never though grill chips could be as crispy as the deep fried version, but amazingly they can be.
These chips were crispy and had a very interesting salt flavor.
The salt flavor was less pronounced than many deep fried chips but it was more uniform and seemed to come from deep within the chip.
The salt flavor was similar to sea salt. These were the best grilled chips I have made.

This particular cooking session was less about putting together a well coordinated meal and more about learning to use my new salt blok. I made my first steak on the the salt block and to go with the steak I used this recipe from Salt Block Cooking to make some grilled potato chips.The recipe was simple. The potatoes were thin sliced, tossed in EVOO and then grilled on the salt block at 450 degress. After about 5 minutes they were turned, seasoned with black pepper and rosemary and grilled for about 4 more minutes. When your are grilling chips you must really watch your grill temps and keep a close eye on the cooking. You can go from zero to a cinder in the blink of an eye. I did my due diligence and the chips came out just about perfect. This isn’t the first time I’ve made grilled potato chips and I am always surprised how crispy they turn out. What was different about these was how they tasted. There was definitely a salt flavor to these, but it seemed to come from deep inside the chip and was very uniform throughout. As I’ve mentioned before the Himilayan salt has a different flavor than other salts I’ve tried. It remonds me a little of sea salt. These salt block grilled chips were definitely the best potato chips i have made.
