Enhance the flavor of vegetables, fish, and meat by using a plank while grilling.

Step 1: Choose plank
Choose only untreated western red cedar, hickory, alder, or maple planks for grilling.

Each wood gives a distinct flavor. Choose wood compatible with the food you’re grilling.

Step 2: Soak plank
Soak the plank in a bucket of water for 1 hour. This will prevent the wood from burning.

Step 3: Add accent
Add the salt and apple juice, white wine, and berry or citrus juice to the water to accent the wood’s aroma and flavor.

Step 4: Season plank
Season the plank by placing it on a preheated grill for 2 minutes, turning once.

Seasoning prevents the plank from warping and intensifies its flavor.

Step 5: Cook food
Place the food on the plank when the plank begins to crackle. Without flipping the food, grill it to desired doneness.

Step 6: Wash
Place the plank in a bucket of water to prevent it from reigniting when your food is done. Wash it with soap and water.

Step 7: Reuse plank
Store your plank in a dry place. The plank can be reused two or three times. Try out a new recipe, experimenting with different wood types.

Did You Know?
The western red cedar tree has been used to make clothes, canoes, shingles, shoe polish, utility poles, and various medicines.

  • I've found great handbook on woodprix website. Good solutions for everyone I think

  • I can make it myself. Just got instructions from WoodPriX website and I'm ready for do it 😀

  • I bought excellent handbook from Woodprix website. Just google Woodprix and start your journey to the better life

  • Great to see that Woodprix has new instructions to save my money and energy to build it.

  • The apple juice and beyond part isn't necessary if the plank is prepackage with flavoring already.

  • Wash it with SOAP and water?! Really!? So next time you cook – all that great tasting soap will have impregnated the very porous wood?!

  • @redlinechavez – Marijuana was made illegal in 1937. At the time, most Americans had no idea what Marijuana was. Yet, almost every farmer in the US was currently growing hemp. They demonized Marijuana as a drug that made minorities go crazy & rape, & kill white women. The law was born of pure racism. It was a way to keep minorities down, or in jail. In 1967 Dr Timothy Leary had the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act repealed because it was unconstitutional. Then in 1970, Nixon created the DEA. Same BS.

  • @TheBigKiller – If you claim that Marijuana is harmful, then I would argue that you have done absolutely no research at all. Funny that you have all these great sources, yet were only able to produce names of sites that you claim you don't use. Your ignorant rambling just make you seem more like an uneducated idiot. You obviously have no clue what you're talking about. I have been an activist since 1993. Where did you get you info? The internet? LOL. Laughable!!!

  • does this really work?(lol stupid question i guess)

  • @TheBigKiller – Ever drank coffee? Thats a drug. Ever used tylenol? Thats a drug. & those drugs are lethal. Alcohol is legal, & kills thousands every year. Cigarettes are legal & kill hundreds of thousands a year. Marijuana, in the 5,000+ years of recorded use has never ever killed one single person. That is a fact. So, before you make generalized absurd ignorant statements, you may want to do a little research 1st. But, I will offer you a glass of water to wash your foot down.

  • @H0U5T0N3TX oh.. i don't smoke..i have friends that do it but im the "good christian boy" so i just don't do it

  • @H0U5T0N3TX it doesn't mean you're going to do bad scholastically … but your mind matures less thus making you less street-smart or have worse common sense than the average person for your age

  • i thought it said how to use a griling prank. i thought it had to do with pranks not planks lmao

  • Did you know? Hemp has been used for pretty much everything but has been outlawed in most states?
