It was with a little scepticism that I tried out a braai plank. It is simply a piece of fragrant wood (oak, birch, mapel etc) that you soak in water for a few hours, and then cook your meat or veges on in on the braai or weber. So I decided to try some roasted peppers, chillies and onions, and after using it once I am completely hooked. They were succulent, roasted perfectly and had a wonderful smokey taste.
I have not cooked meat on it yet (the road was cooked next to it on the grid), but that will be done soon. I am completely hooked on the braai plank. It adds a new dimension to cooking on the braai.
