Summertime is BBQ time! Have you ever of heard of plank BBQ cooking? BBQ and Oven Planks provide a stable surface to cook on and at the same time impart an authentic smoke flavor. They are especially useful when grilling something delicate, like fish, that might otherwise fall apart. The smoky flavor they give to the dish has made cedar planks popular for all sorts of BBQ- fish, chicken, vegetables, beef, and pork.
Chef Lock uses a patented technology for creating their BBQ planks that’s GO GREEN. “Chef Locke utilizes the mill ends, these are the trim pieces left over from manufacturing lumber in the sawmills. This is typical burned or shredded due to no use for such a short narrow piece of lumber. Due to our patented interlocking technology these mill ends can now be used in the manufacturing of our planks. Other competitive plank manufacturing companies lack this technology and are using standard size lumber. The result is more good trees are cut down for their needs. Chef Locke planks result in no trees are cut down for our product as we are using the bi-product that is left over from the sawmills manufacturing process.”
I was excited to receive Chef Locke BBQ planks for my husband to test out. They are recognized by the National Barbecue Association and have won three of six national awards! We got to try out the Beer Can Chicken Plank which was right up my husband’s alley! First he followed the soaking instructions which locks the can in place in the plank. Then he just followed the directions that come with the plank and viola- the delicious chicken super moist chicken was ready! I loved the smoky flavor and I loved that none of the chicken was at all dried out. Yum-O!
