 How to make Lemon Mustard Plank Salmon:


  1. Light your PBC according to instructions. Soak two cedar planks while the charcoal get started.

  1. In a mixing bowl, add all ingredients for the Lemon Mustard Sauce. Mix until well combined. Set aside.

  1. Rinse salmon under cold water and pat dry. Season both sides with salt & pepper.

  1. Place two lemon slices on the plank followed by a salmon filet. Then cover with the sauce and two more slices of lemon.

  2. Place in the center of your PBC. Add woods chips for extra flavor. I like maple wood with this recipe.

  1. Cook for 30 minutes or until an internal temp of 145 degrees.

  1. Remove from the PBC. Serve with extra sauce.
