These were offered a while ago. You can get several uses out of each plank.

Cedar planks are great for grilling fish, especially salmon. I take these tailgating with me or use them at home. Nice deal here Woot!

Always wet your wood before throwing it in the gas/coals.

Those skewers.. how do you handle them after they have been sitting on a hot grill and/or indoor broiler?

Edit: Nope, I was just hallucinating those skewers. I'll go direct my questions about those over at the insane asylum known as sellout.woot

Nope. You need a real fire.

How to Plank Grill

In choosing a plank, pick only untreated cedar, alder, hickory, or maple. Here are a few other tips to ensure plank-grilling success:

* Prepare the plank by soaking it at least one hour in a bucket or cooler filled with water. This adds moisture to the wood and prevents it from burning on the grill.
* Add 1 tablespoon of salt or 1 cup of white wine, apple juice, citrus, or berry juice to the soaking water to accent wood aromas.
* If a plank is being used for the first time, season it by placing it on a preheated grill for 2 minutes, turning once. Lightly toasting the plank on both sides will intensify its smoky flavor and prevent warping. When the plank starts crackling, it's ready for cooking.
* Place marinated or ready-to-cook foods directly on the plank. Keep the grill's lid closed as much as possible to maintain temperatures and maximize smoking. Note: planked food does not have to be turned during grilling.
* Keep a spray bottle filled with water handy so flames can be extinguished if the plank starts to burn.



After Grilling

* Remove the plank from the grill and place into a container of water.
* Rinse a used plank with soap and water and let it dry. Re-soaking for another use is optional. Store plank in a dry, clean place.
* Reuse grilling planks about two or three times. If there's wood left, you can use the plank.
* Crumble up charred planks over coals to use as smoking chips.

I bought these last time and I love them! Forgot to soak them last time though, so my salmon was a little smokier than I expected.

I also have those Fire Wire grilling skewers but I haven't tried them with the grilling planks. Seems like they might be easier to handle on the planks. And the food would be tastier!

These are an excellent deal!

Ok, back to the woot wood jokes.

Has anyone tried soaking these in a liquid other than water? Beer, bourbon or wine perhaps?

These are hands-down the best cedar planks we've ever used, and at a fraction of the cost, to boot!

To people asking if they're reusable, we've been able to get at least two uses out of each plank when prepped according to the directions.

And they made the tastiest piece of Copper River Sockeye salmon that any of us had ever tasted. Bon appetit!

Dear Woot: I love you. Sincerely, Me

The skewers have to sit on the grill until they reach 180 degrees, then you move the tips off of the grill to cool down before you pick them up.

I hadn't thought of doing that, but I think they would work out well soaked in beer. Not so sure I'd want them soaked in a high proof liquor for fear of catching the plank on fire.

I picked up some of these the last time they were offered. I used them with some salmon and it was delicious!

Word of caution: be sure to soak them long enough and thoroughly. I didn't think to weigh them down under the water, so the one that floated on top ended up charring a little more than I would have liked.

I got the planks a couple woot-offs ago and they're fabulous. You can sometimes reuse them, if you didn't burn them too badly the first time and what you cooked on them. If you cooked fish the first time, you may not want to cook chicken on it and get the fishy flavor. But, they are wood, and cannot be used too many times.

I soaked mine in a combo of water and wine, so the plank took on some of the winey flavors which translated to the fish.

However, at about a buck a plank, totally worth it.

ps. Yay for me! Quality Post!!
