It's The Wood That Makes it Good: Seven Ways to Cedar Plank Salmon
If you're not familiar with cedar plank salmon, it's time to get familiar. Grilling fresh fish on a cedar plank is the difference between a sub-standard cookout and a bodacious backyard blowout.
The technique isn't terribly difficult to master, either. Just pick up some cedar planks at a kitchen supply store (or online, or wherever you buy your propane), and use them as a platform for grilling. You'll need to soak the planks in water or cider for a few hours beforehand, but that's a small price to pay for the smoky, woodsy flavor they lend to meats, vegetables, and especially salmon.
