Cedar is characterized by a sweet-smoky-spicy aromatic. The spicy-smoke that cedar imparts makes it an excellent compliment to sweet sauces, marinades or rubs. It can help to think "sugar and spice" when it comes to crafting your own flavorings with this wood.
Higher temperatures create more smoke -- and flavor. On a barbecue set to medium-high, these NorthWoods Smoke Grilling Planks will smoke, char and deliver a richly flavored and moist entree. On gas grills, the heat can be easily adjusted to create a sweeter smoke (low setting) and give each plank two or more uses. Charcoal grills may char on the first use.
But it's not over yet. After the NorthWoods Smoke plank has charred and blistered, crumble it up and let pieces fall to bottom of the grill and reuse them as seasoned smoking chips. Absolutely wonderful when grilling vegetables.
