Grilling with Cedar Planks

Cedar planks are a great way to add smoky flavor to foods on your gas grill, and they’re a great choice with salmon and delicate seafood, chicken, pork, steaks, lamb, game meat and birds, vegetables and even soft cheeses and fruits for dessert!

Cedar planks protect foods from burning as they add just the right amount of smoky flavor, perfect for gas grills, they’re so easy to use! If they flare up, just mist with a spray bottle.

Simply soak the plank, add the meat and place on a preheated grill, that’s all there is to it!  the plank will smolder and burn and smoke, adding just the right amount of smokiness to your dish.  If time allows, soak for 2-8 hours, especially for longer cooking foods.  But for quick cooking foods, 20-30 minutes will do it, just keep a spray bottle nearby to douse any flare-ups.  Learn more about Cedar Plank Grilling and get recipes here.
Buon Appetito – Salute!
