Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

IngredientsSalmon Filet - Cut it up to seving size for each personCedar/Alder Plank - Costco has 6 for $7Apple or Alder Chips1/2 Stick Butter1/4 Cup of Brown Sugar
 InstructionsGet Egg up to 200-250 degrees with Place Setter and wood chips.Soak your chips and plank in water (Can do for 5 minutes or 1 hour)Cut up Salmon filet into the right proportions for your guests.Put Salmon on plank
Put 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 stick butter in microwave until butter is melted, usually 20-30 seconds.  Stir to mix them together to get a liquid carmel.
Brush or spoon Filets with butter/brown sugar mixture, but don't use all of it.
Put plank with Salmon on the egg.Close Egg for 7 minutes and then check on it.Salmon should have white fatty, bubbly substance on it.  Check salmon with a fork to see if it flakes.Close Egg for another 7 minutes, but check from time to time for flakiness.  Don't dry it out.Take it off when it is ready, peel the skin off, top with butter/brown sugar on top and Serve.
Optional:After 7 minutes, take salmon off the plank and put skin down on the grill.  Cook for 5 more minutes to crisp the skin on the bottom, flip it over on the grill, peel the skin off the bottom with a fork, flip back over for 1-2 more minutes.  This will get rid of the white fat/slime that comes from the plank.
 NotesEnjoy, but don't dry it out or overcook it. When you check for flakiness, it should slide apart between layers.Number of Servings: 4-8Time to Prepare: 10 minutes
