Red wine planked steak

I am a big fan of Ted Reader and for a few good reasons. One of them is that he wrote a book about planking. And by that, he means smoking on a plank of wood.

I am going to show you how to smoke a thick steak on a plank with red wine.

Tags: , ,


  • A steak at least 2 fingers thick
  • A bottle of reasonably priced wine
  • Finishing salt

How to

  1. Soak the plank overnight in the wine. Or do as I do with these special Napoleon Cedar planks.
  2. Fire up your grill for direct heat with a temperature of about 140°C (284F). Place the plank on the grates above the heat.
  3. Put the steak on the plank, place a thermometer and close the lid.
  4. When the steak reaches a core temperature of 52°C (126F) You take it out of the grill with the plank. Let it rest while you increase the heat on the grill.
  5. When the grates are piping hot you grill the steak on both sides until you see a nice crust.
  6. Slice it against the grain and sprinkle on a bit of finishing salt.
