I'd like to know your thoughts on whether to use the direct or indirect cooking method for cooking salmon on an alder wood plank, as well as cooking temp and duration. Thank you!
My profile pic is cedar planked salmon. I cook it at around 375 - 400 degrees dome temp. Takes around 20 - 30 minutes. Cook mine till interal reaches 135, no higher for me. This temp keeps it moist. I haven't used an alder wood plank yet.
I prefer to pan sear my salmon and then cook them raised direct at 350 for 10 minutes or so per side. Did about 15 of these last night for our weekly neighborhood grill night and they turn out great. Once in the small I smoked them with peach and apple wood and glazed them with about a 30/70 maple syrup orange juice glaze with some butter mixed in. Topped with diced tomatoes, red onion, balsamic capers, garlic and feta all pre mixed together. Wish I had more pics but I was busy cooking.
Many thanks to all respondents!
