First choose a suitable stone. It needs to have a smooth surface of about 15x15 cm, good thermal conductivity so that the heat remained for a long time. The most hygienic polished stones because they are easy to wash. Much appreciated gabbrodiabase stones that are mined in Karelia, soapstone and lava stones, they do not crumble and do not crack. In an extreme case, you can try to cook on a conventional smooth stones, which are found on the banks of rivers.
Keep in mind that the thicker the stone, the more time it requires for heating, but it will keep warm longer. The optimal thickness of 10-15 cm Can be made using two flat stones. In this case, the lower stone rests on hot coals, he put the products on top close second with a flat stone, also heated. As a result of thermal treatment is carried out from two sides.
Properly warm up the stone so it is not cracked and not split. Heat in the oven, on the stove, the campfire or in the fireplace. Important gradual heating from room temperature to raskalennoy.

Large pieces require a longer cooking due to even heat from the stone they are cooked through evenly throughout the thickness. Choose your method of cooking, you can try different ways at the same time. That meat or fish was more succulent during the cooking water with broth or sauce.
