These are advertised as 7x13 and a half inch wide. That is a good size for grilling salmon. These measure 11.5 by 5.5 inches and aren't even 3/8's of an inch thick. You cannot cook a piece of salmon on these unless it flops off the sides. Good if you like to alder plank goldfish. Very disappointing. They are going right back.
I normally used cedar planks for my grilling needs, until I was in Alaska this May, and the ladies in one of the salmon shops suggested I use Alder wood - excellent with salmon! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! I have found my new grilling planks for salmon =)
First, the service was AWESOME... received my order in time for our Fourth of July bbq. Wanted these alder planks for our grilled salmon, and they certainly lived up to my expectations. I'll never do salmon on cedar again. Thanks Overstock... you're the BEST!
