BBQ is diverse and as personal as you want it to be. So... cooking seafood or meats should be just as diverse and personal. What actually is cedar paper that we use for grilling? Simply, a very quick and easy way to enjoy an amazing cedar flavor infused into your foods is to use thin paper sheets of cedar and wrap your foods with the cedar paper sheets or veneers. This is a really fast way to get the cedar flavor without grilling on planks or smoking with traditional cedar chips.
How do they make cedar paper? Cedar paper is basically a shaving from a big plank to produce super thin veneers...we're down to 1/10th of an inch. It's almost the thickness of a standard sheet of 8.5"x11" sheet of regular white paper. You soak the cedar paper wraps in water just as you would grilling planks or smoking chips so that you produce a smoking environment as the cedar paper drys and burns a bit.
Wrapping your food in a cylinder style fashion keeps the moisture in so your food doesn't dry out. As the food cooks on the grill, the cedar paper starts to dry out and smoke to impart a wonderful aromatic and sweet smoky flavor into the food. Cedar paper is readily available, and the result will have your friends thinking that you spent twice the time on the grill.
