  • Product Suggestion: Planking Bag

    2011 - 05.21

    Like all sorts of other people out there we enjoy cooking various foods on planks, and they are increasingly easy to find all over the place.  The one problem with planking is the need to soak the planks for an extended period of time before grilling/cooking.  Well realistically that’s not the problem, it’s easy enough to do if time consuming.  What it does do however is waste a bunch of water, although the planks are well sized for what you’re cooking on them, they are not well sized for the things you might soak them in: the sink, pots, bath tubs, etc.  Of course on top of that being wood the planks float which leads to other difficulties.

    It seems that in this day when we’re supposed to be more aware of our water usage and make efforts to conserve that someone could mass manufacture a heavy duty zipper bag which was a little larger than a plank and which allowed you to fully emerse the plank in only slightly more water than the plank could absorb.  I think the benefits of this are obvious: less water wasted, easily soak multiple planks, keep a pre-soaked plank around, etc.

    So someone out there with appropriate connections, get on it, I’ll take three.

      How big is your plank? Zellers has extra large zip lock bags that are about 13 inches square. I have some for storing scrapbook stuff–easily holds 12 by 12 paper.
