Plank cooking is a unique culinary method which originated with the Native Americans. The food absorbs the fragrant wood smoke as the plank slowly smolders. The longstanding tradition of cooking on a plank has evolved into a popular at-home grilling technique that adds a whole new dimension to your grilling experience. Big Green Egg planks also come from certified sustainable and food grade sources and are select cut for optimum flavor.
Maple Grilling Planks create a buttery-rich, nutty flavor with a slightly sweet note to compliment pork, seafood and other grilling favorites. Soak the planks in water for at least an hour before placing them on the cooking grid. This ensures they will smolder, which produces the best smoke flavour, and it keeps them from burning up quickly during cooking! Maple wood gives a slightly sweet, buttery - rich flavour and is perfect for pork, chicken seafood, vegetables and cheese.
