Furthermore, do you reuse cedar planks?
Yes, but we don't recommend it. Technically, if the grilling plank is still in good shape after the initial use it may be reused. Keep in mind that it will take on the flavor of whatever you grilled on it, and some of the essential oils from the wood will be used up from the first round of grilling.
One may also ask, can you use regular cedar boards for grilling? Native to the Pacific Northwest and the original Cedar wood used in traditional Native American cooking. Western Red Cedar is delicious and non-toxic. This is the safest and most recommended for Cedar plank cooking. All Wildwood Grilling Cedar Planks are made from Western Red Cedar.
Simply so, how do you clean cedar planks after cooking?
Rinse the plank with warm water (never soap) until all food residue is gone, and place the plank in the freezer for storage. Then, re-soak whenever you're ready to use again. Only reuse the plank with the same protein.
Can I make my own cedar planks for grilling?
Grilling planks can be made from all types of wood, including cedar, alder, hickory, and -- on the sweeter side -- maple. For the most natural smoky taste, find western red cedar. Make sure the wood is at least 1-inch thick and 6-inches wide. Ensure that the wood untreated.
