Great cook. Never tried a plank.

Looks Great!

My planks, even after being soaked in white wine, come out way more charred. I do mine over high heat though.

My favorite way to prepare salmon...

If you haven't planked salmon, you need to!

I think my plank did not char up because  I had it in the BGE with lid closed.

It definitely warped pretty hard. I soaked for about 6 hours beforehand (not sure if that made a difference)

The Salmon was very moist I would recommend anyone that like likes fish to try this method.

I can see how the planks didn't char then.

I do mine over high heat on my gasser and the charring of the planks provides the smoke. Age old method of cooking salmon for sure..

What I normally do is to soak the wood for 3-4 hours. Get the grill up and running at a hot temp. Put the plank on the grill with no fish on it. Let the bottom side of the plank get toasted. Flip over and then lay the Salmon on the charred side. Grill until done.

Now I have hindsight I would prob just go to lowes and buy a coupe of UNTREATED Cedar Palings cut them to 16 -18 inch lengths and sand

Then kaboom cheap planks for cooking.

Make sure the wood is untreated
