    Question about Grok's cooking methods

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    It would seem to be the general rule among Paleo/Primal folk to cook our meet in a pan of some sort and dripping in ghee or fat of choice.

    I'm guessing Grok would have cooked his meat on a spit over an open fire where most of the fat would drip off. So shouldn't we emulate this by grilling our meat rather than frying it in oil?

    Discuss !

    Which Grok? Some cooked, some ripped up the animal where it fell and sucked down the raw fat and liver and dragged the rest home for the rest of the tribe. Some did both. Who are your ancestors and what did they do? Try that.

    I think you are missing my point Jakey. If we are all striving to achieve maximum health and fitness, is it wise to be pouring oil down our necks like it's going out of fashion!

    Wow, you obviously have a time machine as you seem so sure!

    Are you suggesting you are sure all humans and pre-humans ate the same way, no matter where they lived? Where's your time machine?

    In my own experience, when cooking in an open hearth on a spit, you do not place the meat directly on the flame. It is off to the side and a pan catches any drippings. I imagine grok would also cook in a pit which would be lined with rocks allowing the meat to baste in its own juices. Flat rocks could also be used like skillets. I also think grok would have made use of the bones for broth for the young and elderly.

    I enjoy cooking on an open fire and do it when ever I can. I only fry my meat if it is breaded and I gave up bread so no more fried meats.

    I'm not suggesting that at all. I know that people have/had different methods for cooking. and that some diets where/are healthier than others I'm just questioning the excessive use of additional oil/fat added to meat when cooked. I'm forever reading on here how people have their meat dripping in butter or similar, and I can't help wondering if that's the best option.

    I'm not exaggerating. I drink the pool of fat at the bottom of my bowl and drink a can of coconut milk for breakfast every day. Fat is my friend. And I am thin.
