I've tried it a few times on my gas grill. Wasn't impressed. Maybe I was doing something wrong, but it didn't impart that much smoke flavor to the salmon. I've had much better results using my offset smoker

I think water boarding is more humane.

To my generation planking is something totally different. If you don't know what I'm talking about search or youtube it.

I'm an excellent swimmer, so I wouldn't mind walking of the plank, as long as there was a good home cooked meal ready for me when I get back.

Soak them in water first and they are excellent.

I've got a little bit of experience with plank grilling. It's not just about grilling with "planks" but with lots other other wood "tools." A few months ago I published a series of "how-to" posts on plank grilling.

It's not an easy thing to fully master, but if you practice you'll be able to get some amazing foods.

I'm a TOTAL newbie on plankin' salmon, but after one try I'm hooked. I knew what it could do for tilapia, but I had kind of forgot about it since Chili's took it off the menu.

I turned the plank over after it started smoking, put the filets on, kept the coals burning pretty low so I could use the plank a few more times, and then proceeded to overcook the fish....and it was STILL GOOD. The "Hoison Mustard Glazed C-P Salmon" recipe from the Weber's Charcoal Grilling book is MY kind of recipe: easy and tasty.

Man...that's waaaay more stupid than "zwaffelen".
You're a smart kid...google it up.


Honestly I like those cedar planks...the smell is so lovely!
Those planks are quite expensive over here.

I need to give them another try. Previously when I have had things on cedar planks the taste was very subtle to non-existent. I know it is supposed to be more of a subtle flavor, but it was so subtle that it wasn't worth the extra cost. That picture looks awesome by the way.

Only if it involves a grill, woods, and various proteins...

Well, that iJustine video is pretty weak planking. I think it's stupid but there are some crazy funny ones.




Salmon planking is very nice when done on cedar.
