It makes cooking outdoors super easy and you don't even have to turn your oven on inside. At Fire & Flavor, we believe flavor starts with fire. So I wanted to show you a few items that we think are true grilling essentials. One of them is the cedar grilling plank. Cedar planks are really a foolproof way to cook seafood. And a lot of people know cedar planks for cedar plank salmon. The plank is actually gonna go right on top of your grill. And it's gonna add a light, smoky flavor to your foods. We also like to keep a spray bottle of water nearby when we're Doing any type of cedar plank cooking. That way, if you get any kind of flames around the plank, you can spritz those out. We also think that it's really important to use an all-natural fire starter and an all-natural charcoal. With these particular starters that we're showing you today, they're made of paper board and a little bit of paraffin wax. So they have a nice clean burn. We also use our natural charcoals, along charcoal in particular. These are chemical free and they're made from American hard woods shock as oak and hickory.
