I know it sounds strange, but this really works. What a simple way to make an awesome tasting pork roast. I found this in one of the Kraft food and family magazines.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Start with an untreated cedar plank (14x7x1 in). Make sure the plank is untreated. Immerse the plank in water and soak for at least 4 hours. You may have to weigh it down with a can.
  2. Preheat grill to medium heat. Using a brush, brush one side of the plank with oil. This will help prevent food from sticking to wood. Top the plank with meat, place on center of grill. Close the lid.
  3. Grill 1 hour or until meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of meat registers 150 degrees F.
  4. Check back occasionally to ensure plank doesn't flare up.
  5. You can brush with barbeque sauce during last 20 minutes of grilling time if desired.
  6. Remove from grill, cover loosely with foil. Let stand 10 minutes until internal temp reaches 160 degrees F. Disgard plank.

I have used maple planks and some maple syrup brushed on in the last ten minutes

Yum! Have a bunch of cedar planks but we were getting tired of salmon-this was delicious. I did put BBQ sauce on Jack Daniels's original).
