Anyone know where I can buy untreated cedar planks for roasting salmon?

    No shortage of locations, but rain or shine (eg no matter what the New England weather does) New Deal in Cambridge carries them. When the weather is nice TJ seems to have them, but I am not a regular there.

        but you have to be sure they're not treated with fungicide or other treatments.

          I've gotten them at Whole Foods Market in the past.

        Grill planks are on sale at Crate & Barrel in Harvard Sq. Looks like you get 2 cedar, 1 alder & 1 maple for $14.95.

          They have them at the seafood counter at Roche Brothers Supermarket also.

            William Sonoma online, or Bed Bath & Beyond.

              I'd think it would be MUCH cheaper to get them from the hardware store. Just make sure they're untreated.

              It's best to use a fresh plank (b/c of germs and such), so you don't want to go paying W&S prices if you're going to be cooking this way often.
