What type of cedar did you use (red or white)? I've used white for planking salmon and it was AMAZING. I have been trying to find the two recipes that inspired me because I want to make the marinade again...

Do you use other woods for planks and if so, which with which meats/fish? I have access to lots of slab wood thanks to having a sawmill at the farm...oak, hickory, butternut, maple, and ash come to mind. But I'm not sure what to cook on which planks...How thick was your plank and how long did you soak it? (I soaked my planks in the bathtub for about 4 hours...).

Oh man, I almost didn't click on this thread because I thought it was a question about using cedar planks... but Yowza! Fantastic dinner Paymaster. Everything looks perfect! You've got a nice array of food on that plate.

White Cedar I believe. I purchased them packaged for food use in a cooking utensil store.They were about a 1/4" thick and I soaked them about an hour.

What other types of wood do they sell? I keep telling my DH he should get into making planks...we have enough lumber to built two houses...well, maybe not that much, but this hobby produces more lumber than he can use (or sell).

Are you familiar with Ted Reader? he has a book out on plank cooking.

Thanks, Rock. I wasn't familiar with his book. I'll have to pick it up "next time I venture off the farm" (I know, that's beginning to sound like a broken record...). Venturing off the farm means heading to the city of Ottawa, not the little villages here. I almost got off the farm on Saturday, but instead, it was suggested it would be better if I stuck around and mowed the rest of the lawn...
