Description

Plank cooking is the simplest way to infuse food with a subtle aroma and flavor of smoke. 25 Essentials: Techniques for Planking is all you need to start.

The cooking technique simply called planking has already taken the Pacific Northwest by storm and has been getting a major foothold in high-end restaurants nationwide. However, unlike grilling and smoking, planking is an indirect grilling method which gives rise to unique difficulties.

You don't need a fancy rig, special equipment, or complicated directions to start planking. All you really need is a board and 25 Essentials: Techniques for Planking to ensure that your favorite meats are cooked to perfection and infused with just the right amount of smokey aroma and flavor.

With this easy-to-follow manual, you will learn to plank-roasting fish, poultry, pork, and much more. A few of the temping recipes you'll find here include:

  • Griddle-Planked Brie with Amaretto-Peach Chutney and Cranberry Conserve
  • Plank-Roasted Pears with Blue Cheese
  • Cheese- and Herb-Stuffed Planked Portobello Mushrooms
  • Garlic and Rosemary-Slathered Planked Pork Chops

Planking is the perfect new skill to bring to weekend trips to the cabin, the perfect piece of flair to impress at your next cookout, or simply create delicious, complex food to enjoy, and 25 Essentials: Techniques for Planking is the perfect primer.
