Next up is your classic BBQ Grilling Cedar Planks. If you have never tasted food cooked on these babies you are really missing out. We had salmon. I have to say this is honestly one of the very few ways I like salmon. There is something about the flavor of the wood that grills fish beautifully. Also great for chicken, veggies, beef, seafood and pork. Again they are easy to use. Soak boards until the water makes em lock together. Put your favorite food on top and grill em. Make sure to have a spray bottle handy to prevent flare ups.
