“This is an alternative “alpine” way to cook on the grill. In mountain huts they use fine stone slates similar to roof tiles, called “piode”, arranged over 2 stones in order to create a sloped surface.
Light the fire under the “pioda”, heating it slowly to avoid breaking it. When the slate is very hot, carefully place the Galletto opened (marinaded with oil, salt and herbs) on it. The heat is very low and cooking needs quite some time, even more than 1 hour, but it’s well worth the wait.”
