I was surprised at how much I like these. I really thought that they would interfere with the lovely smoky flavor that the grill imparts. But these hickory planks actually enhance the flavor of the grill. They measure 12" x 5 1/2" which is a great size for fish or veggies. You soak them in water for a half hour and then put them on a hot grill. Your food gets a soft hickory taste and cooks beautifully. We wash ours and use them a few times. When they are spent, we crumble them up and drop them into the charcoal. You can also use them in your oven if you're not in the mood to fire up the grill. Set of 2.
