Last Summer we did a remodle on our home and put in Hickory floors.

As it turns out, the scraps work great for plank grilling. Here I'm soaking some Hickory floor scraps while the chimney gets the coals lit.

Here are some Salmon filets that I am going to grill on the Weber, hot and direct but on the Hickory floor pieces.

Rubbed with a barbecue rub, I use Barbecue Voodoo.

Next its on the Planks and over the fire. I leave the lid off for 5 or so minutes to get some smoke starting from the bottom side of the planks.

They cook up in about a half hour with the lid on and vents wide open.

try not to touch the rubbed part and make an ugly blank spot like I did. When your done grilling drop the planks in a bucket of water to put them out and you can use them over and over.

Looks really good. I may have to dig out a steelhead fillet tonight.

Great idea. An excellent way to use up the hickory. I have some grouper filets that I am going to try on the planks.

Planked anything always brings to mind the old story about the best way to prepare carp.
Nail it to an oak board and smoke it about 6 hours. Take the carp off the board and throw it away, eat the board. :roflmaoha0:

Now, let's see, I've got 3 boxes of 3/4" ash flooring left from doing the living room and hallway...................... nah. It's prefinished. :ack2:

That salmon looks mighty tasty!

Don't let a little finish bother you, think of it as a "finishing sauce".
