If you're looking for a new grilling idea, walk the plank!

Cedar plank grilling infuses food with a delicious smoky flavor.

The result is moist, flavorful and it's so easy to do!

A few plank basics from the Kraft Kitchens

• Buy untreated cedar planks at your local grocery, specialty food or hardware store. It should measure about 14x7x1 in.

• Be sure to purchase untreated planks to avoid chemical contamination of food.

• You don't have to limit yourself to cedar. Try untreated oak, maple, cherry or apple wood planks for different flavors.
