Soaking prevents the plank from igniting on the grill and creates smoke that will flavor your salmon. When the fire is ready, transfer the salmon from the plate to the plank and place on the grill. Cover and grill for at least 15 to 20 minutes over a controlled heat. Serve with squeezed lemon."- George Motz 960 1280
"A specialty of Guy's Meat Market in Houston smoked burgers are not easy to master. I've made them 4 times and have been successful only once. The trick here is to cook over indirect, low heat for almost 45 minutes. Not an easy task with a charcoal grill. I use hickory chips that have been soaked for more than 2 hours. Don't forget to keep that cover on!" - George Motz 960 1280

"Skirt steak is a fatty cut of the cow, so I only indulge a few times a year. I marinate 3-lbs. of skirt steak (cut into 1-foot segments) for at least 6 hours in 1 and 1/2 cups of orange juice, 1/4 cup of soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar, a few shakes of garlic powder and cayenne, 8 cloves of pressed garlic, 2 tablespoons of paprika, 2 tablespoons olive oil and an entire bunch of scallions finely chopped." - George Motz 960 1280

"Always a hit, these boneless breasts (8 halves) are marinated for 6 hours in a brine made with 1 and 1/2 cups of apple cider vinegar, 1 1/2 cups water, 1/4cup honey, 2 tablespoons kosher salt, 6 cloves crushed garlic and the juice from an entire lemon." - George Motz 960 1280
