Cedar Plank Maple Chipotle Grilled Pike

Cedar Plank Maple Chipotle Grilled Pike
Cedar Plank Grilled Pike tastes amazing with a sweet and spicy chipotle dry rub, cooked on the grill giving it that smoked influence, with a sweet maple syrup glaze.

To achieve the cedar smoked flavor without a smoker we turn to the old school method of barbequing on a cedar plank.  To prep the cedar plank for grilling you will need to soak your cedar plank, fully submerged in water, for at least 45 minutes.  Then, just dry the excess moisture, and you are ready to grill your Cedar Plank Grilled Pike.
