Using a plank is simple:

    1. Soak it in water for at least an hour and pat it dry
    2. Pre-heat your grill on HIGH for 10 minutes
    3. Coat both sides of the plank with olive oil then place the seasoned meat on it
    4. Place the plank on the grill directly over the lit burner and reduce the heat to MEDIUM-LOW
    5. Cook the meat to its desired doneness
    6. Cedar planks are ideal for salmon but don’t be afraid to try other meats with it. Pork goes great on a maple plank and lamb is delicious on alder.

Note: Make sure to be careful while handling the plank after grilling and that it is fully extinguished before discarding.
