Cooking with Cedar – Where it began

Cedar plank cooking originates from native American tribes of the Pacific Northwest who pioneered the tradition of using wooden cedar planks to grill & smoke their food gathered from hunting expeditions. They would tie fish, game & poultry to cedar planks, place them around an open flame fire to slowly cook using the indirect heat source. Once European early settlers landed on these shores, they soon discovered this unique & previously unknown style of cooking. They soon embraced & adapted it to add vegetables & their own seasonings. Today, cedar plank & cedar wrap cooking has developed into a culinary treat & is now a tradition enjoyed worldwide used by chefs & home cooks alike. Cedar adds a truly unique flavour by combining the earthiness of natural wood & smoked flavour created by indirect heat.

Just a few options to use your planks for!


Fish is the most common pairing for Cedar planks and wraps but you can grill almost anything this way. Try steak, poultry, pork, tofu, veggies, halloumi, brie, or goat cheese. It’s not the best way to cook leafy greens but asparagus, eggplant, zucchini, carrots, green beans, and a whole lot of other vegetables taste amazing when cooked on Cedarwood. Let your imagination guide you! There are so many delicious dishes you can cook this way & it’s oh so easy. Just soak, smoke & enjoy! Check out all the recipes on the CedarWorks Recipe Page
