Suggestions needed for Tilapia on Cedar Planks

edited March 2012 in EggHead Forum
I have a few tilapia fillets I'm going to smoke on cedar planks. I have very little experience with fish on the egg. What temp would you guys recommend? Direct cook I assume. How long should I leave it on? Seasonings? Any other information you can provide would be appreciated?

    on a plank makes the plank direct, but the fish indirect (which is the idea).  soak it as long as you can.  toss it on with the fish. don't let the plank heat up, because your just undoing the soak.  the whole idea with cedar is to delay the smoke until further into the cook.  too much can be a little strong.

    i prefer cedar with salmon, because it's a little stronger fish, and salmon and cedar traditionally pair up.  but no reason it can't work with other fish.

    maybe someone has a recipe for the fish itself.
