Cooking King Crab Legs on Cedar Plank

Cedar Planked King Crab Legs

This very simple recipe will give a unique smoky flavor to the delicate crabmeat. To eat we recommend removing the meat from the shells and dipping it in clarified butter seasoned with some smoked salt.

  1. Preheat your grill to 350 degrees.
  2. After soaking the cedar wrap, tear it into 1 inch strips. Bundle 3 pieces of crab together and wrap the cedar strip around, secure with a piece of twine.  Place the secured bundles on the soaked cedar plank and close the lid for about 15 minutes.
  3. When they are ready the crab shells will have yellowed slightly and have a delicious smoked cedar flavor.
