    Sure. Just follow the instructions on soaking and heating, etc. I think fish turns out quite nicely when planked. Good luck!

  • lots of folks use wood planks on the eggs and they work great. ..simply set up your egg for a direct cook. ..heat up the egg to about 425 degrees dome temp with grid in normal position. .. . soak you plank for about 2 hours in water (easiest way to do this is to fill your sink with water, put the plank in your sink and hold it under water with a heavy pan). .. when you are ready to cook your food (say a salmon filet or pork loin, take the plank and put it in the egg. ...when it starts to 'crackle" (takes about 5 minutes or so), put the food on to cook. . ..works great. . .. cedar planks and alder planks are particularly good. . .here are a couple of pics of cedar cooked salmon. .. . i know a couple of guys lately here have cooking mashed taters on cedar planks with real good success. .. .

    don't know, but

    I've always thought Cedar kindof makes things taste like a closet or 'cedar' chest :(

    Alder is both traditional and a real treat :)

    Also really good if you have them, are fruit planks, like apple, pear, or cherry.

    I'd love to get Greg to make some Guava planks... just imagine!
