Cedar planks

Fuser | Aug 23, 2007 12:48 PM

My husband and I went on a mission to try a cedar plank on our gas grill -- it seemed like such a good idea. We finally tracked one down, soaked it for a couple of hours and I cooked some salmon on one plank and made him a pork chip on another that I then put directly on the grill so it would brown. And it was GROSS. It tasted like cedar -- like Poconos souvenirs, summer cottages and chests to store clothes. Did I do something wrong or is this one of those aquired tastes, like black coffee, that I can just pass by?
