Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Planked Fish

Tomorrow I will cook my first planked salmon, and perhaps Mahi mahi?...  I have the woo 2, and planks of alder and cedar.  Kindly offer any suggestions!

Thanks,
Dave
no, not -that- one!

    Wish I could Dave, I have owned my beloved BGE since fathers Day and still haven't cooked fish. I will anxiously await assistance and store for later (GOOD LUCK).

    For the salmon, I plank indirect, at least 400º dome. I'm cheap and re-use the planks (actually cedar shake), others go raised direct at 350º dome. I'm simple and I like salmon so no rubs, some oil, skin down (if it has skin only one side) some S&P and lemon slices. Do not overcook, off by 130ºish maximum.

    I have always planked 375 raised direct, I have a couple rubs I got while in Seattle but SWMBO really likes soy with brown sugar marinade. Then I simmer the rest of the marinade while the Salmon is cooking and spoon it on the plated Salmon. Take of at 130-135.

  • Thanks for the replies!  In about 4 hours I will get the egg going.  After reading these replies and looking at other threads about planked fish, I have decided to go raised direct first.  Depending on the number of guests there may be an opportunity to try indirect as well.  Pictures and a report after the party, err, I mean tomorrow <g>.

  • Planked Mahi-mahi, corn on the cob.  The fish came out perfectly moist and delicious!
