Default Plank Grilled Salmon question

Ok..I am going to do Plank Grill Salmon for my wife for Mothers Day. (Mini Chef is only 2 1/2 so I have handle it.)

So from searching thia site and the interwebs. I have learned the following.

1. Soak the plank
2. Char the plank
3. Place the fish on.
4. Close the lid for 15 minutes.
5. take off and enjoy.

Let me know what I am missing or other suggestions.

I would change the order of those steps, but otherwise you've got it right. ;)

If your pit is set to 225° or so, the fish should take about 45 minutes. If you're cooking over hot coals you'll need to soak that plank most of the day and the fish will take half as long.

YMMV - you just need to watch it for two things:
1. Don't let your plank catch on fire, and
2. When the fish flakes easily with a fork, pull it - it's done.

Good luck!

Good luck!
I assume the change would be 2 & 3? or would you change 1 & 3


1. Soak the plank
2. Char the plank
3. Place the fish on.
4. Close the lid for 15 minutes.
5. take off and enjoy.

If your grilling the plank works great, if your cooking offset the cedar plank is just a waste of time. I don't soak the board or nothing. Unless the board is charring, your not getting any of the effect of cooking on the plank. We usually take ours off when the white stuff starts coming out and easily flakes. Good luck on the cook
