  • Re: Cedar plank salmon

    always direct, since the plank makes it indirect. if you use a platesetter, the planke won't smoke, and that's frankly the only reason it's there. the fish gets no flavor by virtue of sitting on the wood.

    soak the plank (if its cedar) to delay the smoke til the end of the cook. too much cedar is not a good thing, but just a tinge works well with the fattiness of the salmon.

    400 or so, maybe 15 minutes.
  • Re: Royal Oak Lump Charcoal

    Masked irritated person:. I'll spell it out. Doesnt matter what the name on your bag says. You've been burning nothing but royal oak all along.

    Quality of charcoal varies from bag to bag with any manufacturer. Since yourBGE charcoal is really RO, any difference you see is unrelated to BGE vs RO

    Your results despite same fill level are a function of it being a natural product, sometimes lighter sometimes denser. BGE is'nt better than RO or vice versa

    Wasnt being rude. Was literally spelling it out, because the RO BGE question has been asked answered about 3500 times the past year.

    I'm sorry if the internet didnt transmit my friendly banter correctly.
