    When I ‘registered’ my 18.5 Weber Grill, I opted into periodic product updates from them. Those updates also included weekly recipes – one of the first was for planked salmon.

    Soak the plank, coat with evoo, salmon skin side down, spread with a little mustard, add salt, pepper, and a little brown sugar. Grill indirectly for 20 to 25 minutes until the internal temperature is about 135.

    Last nights dinner was superb.

    Did you put all your coals on either side of the plank?

    I 'borrowed' two of the four pavers that hold up a grate in our chimena. I put them onto the charcoal grate about the width of the weber chimney parallel to each other. Half the charcoal went behind one and the other half behind the other. I used briquettes for this one - their uniform size makes indirect cooking easier.

    That looks tasty. It's one of my favourite ways to prepare salmon.

    The package called it Steelhead - I looked it up and found this. That's why I called the post steelhead salmon.

    Salmon, trout, whatever - it was delicious. We have another filet in the freezer.
