BK Maple plank
Plank grilling, also known as “planking” is the best way to ensure that your food will get a deep, wood-smoked flavour. This method consists of placing your food on a wooden board that has been set over indirect heat on a grill. Are you willing to try? We recommend the Broil King Maple grilling plank. They are made with 100% natural Canadian Maple wood. To use it when grilling, just place your choice of meat on top of the plank directly onto your BBQ. This will allow the tasty flavours from maple to infuse the meat.
Remember that before you start grilling, you’ll need to soak your board for at least an hour. Therefore, the best way is by soaking the plank in a baking dish. This prevents the wood from catching fire while you cook. In this sense, you’ll have to take precaution and watch for occasional flare-ups. Buy your BK Maple Plank here.
