Planked Salmon and mashed potatoes on the Excel

Post  Don Marco on Thu Apr 17, 2008 4:06 pm

Howdy folks...

I just cooked the first food on the new excel 20.

Had some leftover roasted garlic and chipotle mashed potatoes from yesterday. Added some grated cheddar, aged westlite cheese and some italian herbs, mixed it up good and put in the fridge overnight.


Heres 2 small salmon filet pieces seasoned with Texasbbqrub "Texas Wild" and the potatoes. Made a flat ball of half of the taters and put the rest into the freezer for later use.



Made a fire in the excel with lump and put the grate directly on it to roast the maple plank



Then turned the plank around, mounted the stacker and (empty foiled) waterpan and put the grate + plank on top.

I added some cherry sticks to the fire and put the taters on the plank, then closed the lid and watched the excel set in at around 275 F.






~20 Minutes later i added the salmon.


Here it is ! Yummy !

Guess theres not much to say bout the fish as propably everybody knows this, but the taters rock !

The Cheddar melted all through the potatoes and the diced westlite cheese with less fat made some nice cheesy bubbles. Add to that the herbs, chipotle and the smoky crust and you got a winner.









So long,
