HOW DO YOU USE A WOOD PLANK?
Before you can use a wood plank, you have to soak it in water. This should be done for at least 1 to 2 hours, but you can easily do this overnight. If you want, you can also add some wine. If necessary, place something heavy on top of the wood planks to keep them under water. In this way, you can be sure that they won’t float to the top and that they absorb sufficient water. Before you start using your wood plank, it is advisable to grill your preparation briefly on your barbecue. By doing so, your wood plank will give more flavour to your preparation. Then you have two options to use your wood plank: via direct or indirect heat. We recommend a combination. Place the wet wood plank briefly above a direct heat zone and leave until the bottom darkens and begins to smoke. Then turn the wood plank over and place it on an indirect heat zone of the barbecue. Put your preparation on it and close the lid. Smoking with a wood plank is thus best done with a barbecue with a lid. Take your preparation off the barbecue once it's done and enjoy! In principle, you can use a wood plank several times. After use, clean it with warm water and a good brush. Leave to dry for a while and your wood plank is ready for the next use.
