    I’ve seen some folks lay down a bed of herb sprigs to prevent fillets sticking to the grill (lemon slices, too) but I like salmon as much as having my back go out... as a matter of fact, down on it for the 3rd Nov/Dec in a row right now!:mad:

    you know the recipe?
    Carp on the plank, plank above a fire pit. Keep pit coals going for 5 to 6 hours.
    When done, throw out the carp and eat the plank.

    Ahem, fellas :rofl: :lol::thumbs:

    5-7 min per side until flakey

    spice depends on what I got or fresh dill or rosemary or thyme if I can get it.

    Med/hi heat. Well lubed grill

    I have better luck with a spatula than tongs for flipping


    Fresh squeezed lemon on top after grill is good.

    This what I do all my fish. It does a wonderful job.

    then I put them on a cooling rack, put that in the smoker. I spray the cooling rack with Pam for easier release. The cooking temperature is pretty much what I use…. Merry Christmas….
