cedar planks

Post by College Boy » Sun Sep 07, 2008 5:18 pm

I bought a set of cedar planks at Price Chopper today. I am not sure how to use them. I am thinking that I should soak the planks in water for an hour, preheat the oven to 325, put the salmon on the planks, and put the planks in the oven. Does anyone know if that will work?

I have never done this but my BBQ book says to soak them overnight, weighing them down to keep them submerged. If you are putting them in the oven as opposed to BBQ'ing, perhaps an hour or two would suffice for soaking.

The package that it comes in says to soak them for at least an hour, set the barbecue grill to 325 (since when do barbecue grills have temperature settings?) and put them on top of the barbecue. I don't have a barbecue, so i am thinking that I should do it in the oven.

Mike,

I think you better use TBA's directions as my directions don't differ for an oven or a BBQ and yours only says for BBQ too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Her directions differentiate between a grill and an oven!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just read the fine print and it says that the planks are for outdoor use only. :noparty:

I see recipes on the internet for using them in ovens, though. Maybe it is just a liability issue.

Hmmmm......I don't know. Could this be a carbon monoxide poisoning concern?

I don't know. Emeril actually smokes stuff indoors.

Oh tobe, you could be right. I would return them to the store, just to play it safe.
