Some would argue that you need to buy food service quality cedar planks for this dish. Maybe it’s the redneck in me, but that just seems like waste. If you’ve got yourself a Home Depot and any kind of saw you can make your own planks for much less money….

One of the kid’s favorite dinners. The lemon curd gives the sauce a flavor that isn’t too tart for their little taste buds. Plus it’s loaded with veggies so i don’t mind feeding it to them. Lemon curd is a sweet lemon spread available in most markets. It is on…
