The pine board was unusually moist. I was pleasantly surprised. It went quite well with our bbq aligator ribs and squirrel kabobs. A new family favorite!

Oh, please use Cedar, the be-all and end-all of the culinary masters insist that Cedar gives the most flavourfull result. Don't throw the carp out - make a tasty salad out of it, throw in a bit of hemlock, some 'wild' mushrooms and some rhubarb leaves and serve it to the afternoon ladies bridge club or the Monday night football guys.
