- Soak the cedar plank for about 2 hours so that it will not burn when it comes into contact with the grill fire.
- When the plank has been soaking for 90 minutes, preheat the gas or charcoal grill to about 400 degrees.
- Place the salmon onto the plank. Cover it with a mixture of the brown sugar, dry mustard and salt and pepper. Press the mixture into the fish and set aside for a few minutes.
- Place the plank with the salmon onto the grill. It will need to cook for about 30-45 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish. It is done when it is a uniform color all the way through, and can be flaked with a fork.
- Remove from the grill and let it rest for about 10 minutes. With a long spatula, gently loosen the fish from the plank and serve.
*You may find cedar planks at higher-end supermarkets or hardware stores.
