Western Cedar Grilling Planks (8 Pk) Review

I have never grilled with any type of wood chips, let alone, wood planks, but I've heard so much great things about grilling with them to add flavor to your food.  I was thrilled when I received my Western Cedar Grilling Planks in the mail!  I couldn't wait to use them, to see what all the fuss was about.  

Let me begin by saying....THE WOOD PLANKS DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!  They add that hint of flavor to fish, Salmon, chicken, steaks and vegetables.  You can actually cook anything you want on these Cedar planks, just to give it more flavor.

These planks will give your ordinary seasoned food more OOMPH!  Instructions say to soak these planks for 1-2 hours, although, I would recommend soaking them for the full 2 hours, to eliminate some of the burning.  If not soaked for the recommended time, you may end up with burnt edges around your planks.  If soaked fully, you should get about 2-3 uses out of each plank.  

The planks, once they've been soaked, will begin to smoke when you put them on the grill and begin grilling.  This is normal. The planks are 15" x 5.25" x 3/8".  Separating the meats from the vegetables, when grilling with the planks, is recommended.  We don't want any cross contamination!




You can grab these full of flavor planks by visiting AmazonThe list price is $39.99, but they are marked down to $24.95 + shipping.
