    Cooking Know-How

    UNTREATED cedar planks, which are sold for this purpose, can be found at most specialty food stores or some grocery or hardware stores. During cooking, check periodically to make sure that the planks are not on fire. Since the planks can ignite when exposed to flames, it is best to keep a spray bottle of water close at hand if needed to extinguish any flames.


    Prepare as directed, using a quartered chicken. Place 2 chicken quarters on each soaked plank. Grill 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until chicken is cooked through.
