PLANK GRILLING TIPS
Cooking meats on a wooden board is an old tradition. Plank grilling is easy, and it can be a nice change of pace. Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet’s grillmaster Russ Faulk offers three important rules for plank grilling.
2. Cook in the indirect zone of the grill. Planks should be next to the fire; not over the fire.
3. Keep the temperature below 500° F. This greatly reduces the chances of the plank catching on fire.
