    With cedar plank I do direct at 375 and pull the Salmon when it gets to 135 IT. but the final temp is by preference. It takes about 15 - 20 minutes or so

    Turned out good. Not much wood flavor, I think the rub I used was a little salty and hid the smoke flavor.


    Now can I wash the plank and use it again?

    Thanks

    I have washed and used planks 3 or 4 times with no problems.

    Firemanyz, regarding the planks, I just used my first planks last weekend on a 3 lb salmon filet from Costco and it came out awesome. I have learned that yes, the planks can be washed, but what I read said not to use soap, and also that the planks can be re used 3 or 4 times, or until they get too charred up! Many tips on planked salmon available here!
