Cedar Planks

I have some leftover pieces of cedar from building my egg table.I was wondering if this wood is ok for doing salmon cooking on it?

    I think you want to make sure the wood is not chemical treated.  From what I have heard, usually cedar that you buy at a big box like home depot or lowes will be treated.  I recall some people have found untreated cedar shingles to use for cooking. 

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Ya this was wood from Home Depot that was used to builds a table for my egg so I guess it won't be good to use.
