Post pics!! I LOVE salmon, and have smoked it, but never grilled it. How long does it take to grill it? Do you have to buy the cedar plank? Can you taste a difference?

Great thread!!! :D

I was taking some stuff left over from the greyt Pergo installation a couple of weeks ago and saw those cedar planks. What a racket!! $6.99 for 2 boards. We soaked them for about 4 or 5 hours, per directions, so they didn't burn. Hoping to reuse the plank, unless there's some danger in it. We've never cooked on a plank before.

Also got a grill basket, the wok type with higher, slanted sides for grilled veggies. I didn't fix that for this evening, but we've been grilling whatever veggies I happen to have in the frig every night. Last night I sliced a russet, 1 sweet potato, zucchini spears, yellow squash spears, asparasgus, red onions into the wok, sprinkled a tiny bit of hickory seasoning on it, along with garlic powder and a sprinkling of olive oil. When they're finished I toss with a bit of parmesan. They're delicious.

I sounds like you have planned properly. The seasonings sound perfect. I LOVE using olive oil with garlic and a sprinkling of parmesan.

Everything sounds perfect.

The veggies were last night with the filet mignon. Tonight I made something else. I think you'll see them in the pics SR's is posting. I cooked a cup of instant brown rice, let it cool, mixed it with some light Italian dressing and fresh scallions, oregano and basil leaves from my little herb garden. I added some sun dried tomatoes, cut up a fresh tomato, added little cubes of mozzarella, parmesan and a couple other Italian cheeses (good old Kraft Italian crumbles in a bag), along with small cubes of an extra lean salami. It tastes like Lebanon bologna, if you've ever had it. I added a dash of pesto seasoning and garlic to the mix. I refrigerated it for a couple of hours. It was yummy, if I do say so. :D

Please note through the glass topped table the new Pergo. It's showing darker in the pic than it actually is. It's a "butterscotch" oak.
