You Will Need
- A plank
- A bucket of water
- 1 tbsp. salt
- 1 c. apple juice
- 1 c. white wine
- 1 c. berry or citrus juice
Choose only untreated western red cedar, hickory, alder, or maple planks for grilling.
Soak the plank in a bucket of water for 1 hour. This will prevent the wood from burning.
Add the salt and apple juice, white wine, and berry or citrus juice to the water to accent the wood's aroma and flavor.
Season the plank by placing it on a preheated grill for 2 minutes, turning once.
Place the food on the plank when the plank begins to crackle. Without flipping the food, grill it to desired doneness.
Place the plank in a bucket of water to prevent it from reigniting when your food is done. Wash it with soap and water.
Store your plank in a dry place. The plank can be reused two or three times. Try out a new recipe, experimenting with different wood types.
