Cedar Planked Steak


First of all you will need a nice cut of steak. We recommend a strip loin!
Unlike seafood and veggies, steak is something that does have to be flipped over once on your grilling plank.
Season your steak with the Steak and Rib Rub (mix 1 T. rub with 2 T. oil)
When the barbecue is nice and hot place the steak on your pre-soaked, ungreased cedar plank.
  • When the barbecue is nice and hot place the steak on your pre-soaked, ungreased cedar plank.
  • Put it on one side of the grill and turn that side down to med-low, leave the other side on med-high, and close the lid.
  • The plank will start to crackle and smoulder… This is a good thing! Allow the cooking to continue for 10 minutes.
  • Check once in a while to make sure that you’re not getting any flames or flare-ups. If this occurs, just spritz out the flames with a spray bottle filled with water.
  • Flip your steak once, half way through cooking (at about the 10 min. mark).
  • Continue cooking for 10 more minutes, or until the steak is done to your preference.
  • When the steak is ready, give it a quick sear on the grill, and then quickly sear on the other side for appearance and ENJOY!
