On TRex's site he suggests pulling it at 137 degrees and I agree.

All the above and a quick answer about planking too...Just because there may be some question, even after all the reading.
The plank is the heat barrier...Thus, cook it direct, so to speak.
I put my planks on the grid, atop the fire ring and it works great.
Just be sure to soak them for at least an hour!
Not to mention the smokin' awesome recipe at Dizzy Pig.....for future reference. Not a plug, but that combination is killer!
I use this recipe, but cook it on Cedar or Alder wood planks. Comes out great everytime. Family favorite.

Salmon fillets (with skin on), 4 to 5 ounces per serving (have done with skin off)
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tbsp butter, melted
2 tbsp maple syrup
Your favorite commercial or homemade dry BBQ rub, to taste
•Combine soy sauce, lemon juice, brown sugar, oil and garlic and stir to dissolve sugar. Pour into a zippered-top plastic bag and add salmon. Marinate in the refrigerator for 3 to 6 hours.
•After marinating, allow the salmon to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before grilling, then pat dry with a paper towel.
•Mix together the butter and maple syrup and brush over entire surface of the salmon. Sprinkle with a liberal amount of BBQ rub.
•Set the EGG® up for direct (I place on Planks) cooking at 350°F, place the salmon on a fish grid and cook for 15 to 20 minutes. Salmon is done when a knife inserted in the fillet slides in easily with no resistance and flesh is no longer opaque.
•Remove salmon; using a clean brush, brush on any remaining maple syrup/butter mixture and wrap in foil for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
