    I used it for grilling salmon . Smoked salmon flavor. I 'm not sure what plank it was I have bought it in a world market store.

    Yeah, someone that DH works with gave him one of the planks but I haven't used it yet. Guess I need to google it to see what I can find out. I forgot I had it until I saw this post.

    Don't forget to soak the plank. Ruined a couple salmon filets once and had to go out to dinner with our guests. [​IMG]

    Well I saw it done once, it dates way back to early times. Planked salmon was the thing. It was a wooden roofing shingle. it was soaked in wine for some time then it had the salmon laid flat on it and string wraped around it to hold it on the plank. Then wine was poured over the salmon for quite some time and then cooked by an open fire. Thats how I saw it done. Hope it helps.

    I've seen it with fish- trout and salmon. Don't bother getting an expensive plank, go to Lowe's and get a piece of untreated hardwood.
