Spark Hardwood Planks
Planks are great for adding additional smoke flavor to whatever you're grilling, and they keep foods from falling through the grill grates and drying out while cooking. Our planks are crafted from trees grown in the Pacific Northwest to honor the flavor and origins of this cooking method.
Recipe Inspiration: Planked Zucchini
Stuffing zucchini turns a basic vegetable into a favorite meal. Grilling it on a plank keeps the zucchini crisp tender and protects the delicate vegetable from overcooking. The stuffing browns at the same time as the edges of the zucchini and nothing gets soggy like it does in the oven.
Recipe inpiration: Planked BBQ Salmon
Brush a center-cut fillet with your favorite barbecue sauce during the final five minutes of the cooking time for a simple sweet and tangy glaze that adds a rosy sheen and a burst of flavor.
How to use your Planks
Completely submerge the plank in water for 30-60 minutes prior to use.
When you are ready to start grilling, start your Spark and set the temperature to 500°F.
Once the set temperature is reached, place your food directly on the center of the wet plank. Put the plank on the grates in the center of the grill (right above the heat spreader).
Keep the lid closed while your food cooks. When your food is done cooking, remove the plank from the grill using a grill glove or pair of tongs - be careful, the plank will be hot!
Serve food directly on the plank or transfer to a serving dish. Be sure to place the plank on a heat-proof surface.
Enjoy! Please note, grilling planks are intended for single use only and should be discarded after cooking.
