Using this authentic Pacific Northwest Native method you can create an impressive dish on your gas or charcoal grill using grilling planks in just a few steps.

Plank Grilling Method

How-To Use Grilling Planks

Soak: Soak grilling planks in water for 1-8 hours, making sure the grilling plank is completely submerged.  A longer soak reduces the chance of flare-ups, and creates more steam to carry the flavor of the wood into your food.

*An excellent soaking vessel for small to medium-sized grilling planks is a 13"x 9" baking dish.

*If you are feeling adventurous, soak your planks in wine, beer, juice or stock.

Preheat: Grill to a medium heat of 350°-400°F (177°-205°C).

Prepare: Have a spray bottle of water ready for flare-ups.

Grill: Add food to soaked grilling plank, place loaded plank on grill, close the grill lid and cook. No flipping required. Cook until your food is done to your specifications.
