  • Immerse plank in water, placing a weight on top of plank to keep it submerged. Soak at least 4 hours or overnight.

  • Grill 1 hour or until meat thermometer inserted in thickest part of meat registers 150°F, turning and brushing with barbecue sauce mixture the last 20 min. Discard any remaining sauce mixture used for brushing. Remove meat from grill; cover loosely with foil. Let stand 10 min. or until the internal temperature of meat is 160°F. Discard plank. Cut meat into thin slices. Serve with reserved sauce mixture.

How to Grill Pork Perfectly

Pork should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Grill until internal temperature reaches 150°F, then remove from heat and let stand 10 min. The temperature will rise about 10°F during the standing time.

Cooking Know-How

UNTREATED cedar planks, which are sold for this purpose, can be found at most specialty food stores or some grocery or hardware stores. During cooking, check periodically to make sure that the plank is not on fire. Since the plank can ignite when exposed to flames, it is best to keep a spray bottle of water close at hand if needed to extinguish any flames.

Special Extra

Garnish platter with orange slices or wedges just before serving.

    I made this for a party of about 30 people. Everyone raved about it. The pork was very tender and browned up really nice on the planks. I didn't have 'teriyaki' sauce, but used Yoshida's gourmet sauce as a substitute and it worked just fine. The orange zest added a nice flavor too. I also marinated the pork overnight, which the recipe didn't call for, but it was great. I also added sesame seeds as a garnish before serving.
