Customer Innovation: Electric Cedar Plank Salmon

We love it when our customers come up with innovative ideas that help make our products fit their lifestyle. We pride ourselves on our tagline “Better solutions through innovation”. Our customers must feel the same way, we just recently found a posting on eG Stuff Forums that we thought would be great to share with our readers.

The posting titled “Cedar plank salmon on electric grill Using PowerChef!” Yes you read that right, cedar planks on an electric grill. We have had many customers ask about this type of grilling, but we haven’t seen any customer take it into their own hands and do it their selves.

As you can see in the picture, “aceshigh” has stripped the plank in thin pieces to fit within the grill.

Because there are several sticks, the smoke penetrates the salmon as it moves upward instead of relying on going ‘around’ the traditional plank set-up.

If you would ask me, that salmon looks fantastic. Thanks for sharing this with us, and we are always looking for our customers to share their experiences with our products. Whether it’s a custom installation of a fireplace or a unique use of our grills – we want to hear from you.
