    Plank Cooking a fire starter

    This was the most disappointing book purchase I've made in the last decade. The photography and layout of the book were attractive enough for me to purchase the book since plank cooking is one of the cooking styles we enjoy. Now that we have tried the recipes several times I have to wonder if it was proofread or tested prior to publication because the recipes have inconsistencies, inaccuracies and have all been inedible. Serious disappointment over the wasted time and money has caused us to give this book a new role as a fire starter.

    introduction to plank cooking with numerous recipes

    Plank cooking is introduced by directions for preparing a plank of alder, hickory, maple, oak, or other wood. Simple pieces of beef, pork, poultry, or fish as well as all kinds of fruits and vegetables can be cooked on a plank over a grill or in an oven to give it a delicious, smoky flavor picked up from the plank. But the one hundred recipes by the much-traveled authors are for more involved recipes that are more flavorful using spices, cheeses, sauces, and other ingredients. Aciote pork roast, grilled peaches with vanilla topping, whitetail tenderloin with blue cheese, snapper with creamed vegetables, and oyster bacon bites are only a few of the appetizing recipes that can be done with plank cooking. Plank cooking is not difficult. But you want to learn how to do it right by going to this simple instructional guide including the numerous exceptional recipes.
