  1. Im smoking some salmon this weekend and was wondering if anyone used the Ceder Planks before? Any ideas?

    I've used them and they add a nice flavor to the salmon.

    I usually marinate mine in a mix of maple syrup balsamic vingear and dijon mustard first. Always comes out great.

    You are using the planks as a cooking plate, not putting them in as wood to be actually completely consumed right?

    From what I gather, using cedar as a smoking wood is a really bad idea. I have used the planks on a grill to cook salmon at high temps and it gives it good flavor. Not sure what the result would be low and slow.

    EDIT: Sorry if this was obvious and was your intent, just want clarification.
  4. No, lol, I would never use The planks for smoking. I meant being used as a cooking plank for the salmon to cook on. [​IMG]
