Default Planking

Hey guys, I was reading about planking in a Weber mag and it told me something I didn't know (not hard to do). It said that you can plank on [most] any board. I've heard of Shad planking which I think is on cedar. And Ive heard of using alder, but they said you can plank on oak. They showed a pic of 2 nice thick juicy fillet mignons smoking on an oak board and man did it look good! Has anyone tried it? I'm going to have to give it a go.

Where is the best place to buy planks for smoking (on a Weber). How thick should the planks be?
