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 planks are not on fire. Since the planks 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.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with a tomato, cucumber and onion salad.


Prepare recipe as directed, using a quartered 4-lb. chicken. Place 2 chicken quarters on each oiled soaked plank. Grill 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until chicken is done (165ºF).


The cedar planks can be soaked up to 24 hours before using as directed.
