LOL getting all set for last nights dinner and had the salmon ready to go on the small egg. Never gave it a thought as to if the plank would fit! opened little egg up and tried to put on the salmon. NO GO. So if you are using a smaller egg make sure the planks fit BEFORE you load them up. I had to scrap of the fish, run to the shop, cut off two inches and put it all back together! I think hubby has a little Ragin River and mayo on the band saw :kiss: But it was worth it. We will do this again! ( on the shorter planks ) Julie

    nice work. the salmon also looks good. send me an email if you have a website for your rugs! looks like something my wife would love!
    just use my email in my profile.
  • Do you clean fish as well? :laugh:
    Do you have a boat? :laugh:

    Nice Salmon - A little seasoning and mayo will spice up that blade. Next time you use the saw it may ask for extra mayo. :lol:
  • I went to the trouble to log in and go through the rigamaroll just to type this-LOL!
  • Good story! Glad this sort of thing happens to someone other than me!

    Question- When you plank the salmon, is it skin on or skin off - or does it matter?

    I picked up some planks on Saturday so now I can start to experiment.

    Hi Bob I leave the skin on and do it skin down. I rub a little EVO on the plank and put on the fish then the sauce. If you remove the fish as soon as it is done cooking and wipe clean it can be used again.

    Nice rugs. Do you sell them? Do you have a website? eBay? I know several people who would like them.

    We sell the supplies to make your own. I do have a site but don't know if I can post it? don't want to offend with any "hooker spam" LOL We are in Maine and are the largest supplier in the country for traditional rug hooking. we import our own linen for the backing and design all of our own patterns and make our own frames and fancy handled hooks. We also dye all the wool fabric to achieve the colors we like to use. We bring in national teachers twice a year and hold large workshops. We also host a rug hooking cruise once a year. being a hooker is hard work! :blush: Julie
