Salmon Planks in the Rain

My wife surprised me yesterday evening when she brought home a salmon filet - a family favorite and it's been a while.

It's been pouring rain here all day and soaking my Q Shack with sideways rain, but damn the torpedoes, full cook ahead!

Rubbed with DP Tsunami Spin and cooked raised direct at 425 over cedar planks ( soaked for about 2 hours prior to cooking and toasted for a little over a minute before putting the fish on) for just over 13 minutes. The smell of cedar was heavenly while it cooked.  :)

    Wow, that looks fantastic, I recently have just now started to like salmon after years of thinking it taste too fishy. I need to give this a try. Nice work!!

    That looks great. OK, so can you wash and reuse the cedar planks? Looks like they should be good for more than one cook, but I would think they would need to be washed and dried good then resoaked before the next use.

    I love it.   I cook Salmon probably every two weeks.   Yours looks great.

    Salmon looks delicious. Question, is cedar just like 1X6 dog-eared fencing from the Depot?

    These are Weber planks that I received as a gift a while back.

    @epcotisbest, I wash them after use and I keep a small stack of them handy. I can get 3, maybe 4 cooks from a plank before it's too charred. Just re-soak and go.
