|The SM3 on the left types very nice. The one on the right needs work. Notice the out of position CR lever?|

|Salmon on a plank. I found this to be one of our favored ways to make and enjoy a nice big piece of fresh salmon.|
The planked salmon (or any fish) tastes great. We used to make Shad at my Grandfather's camp when I was a young fellow. I've also made trout, bass, catfish, and even carp, yes that ugly old fish that no one likes, on a plank. Roasted slow over an open fire even carp tastes good. The thing I like about the plank is that I can soak it in water and it will steam the fish. I can soak it in wine and add a bit of different flavor to the fish. I even tried beer, but beer is better for batter and deep frying. Tonight I did not soak the plank. This tends to give a bit of smoke flavor to the fish as I move the planks over the flame when near done and let the wood char and smoke. With the grill covered there is a bit of smoke flavor.
