How to season/prepare a wood plank for Plank Grilling


I wanted to Plank Grill a Salmon, after hearing about how much Jarrod enjoyed it:

Besides salmon, what other meats can be grilled on a cedar plank?

How do I season a cedar plank in order to use it for grilling? After it's seasoned any tips on the actual grilling technique?

The main thing you need to do to prepare a plank for grilling is to soak it in water first. Otherwise, it can catch on fire and you'll have a mess.

For seasonings, you can use anything that you would use when roasting something. For salmon, you could put down some lemon slices and rosemary.
