Where can I find cedar planks?
- PALEO SWAP: If you are eating dairy-free, switching to coconut ice cream will make this dessert paleo.

- LOW-CALORIE SWAP: To make this a low-calorie dessert, replace the mascarpone with classic Cool Whip
What is plank cooking?
Plank cooking is a cooking method where you heat your food on a wood plank, often made from cedar wood.
Planking allows you to retain moisture in your food, while imparting a subtle wood flavor from cedar or whatever wood is used for the plank.
You can cook almost anything on a plank, from fruit and vegetables, to fish, to pork, to desserts like this peach treat.
Plank cooking has been around for a long time and many cultures have their own methods of cooking food on a wooden plank.

When I make cedar plank smoked peaches I set my pellet smoker to the temperature of 250 degrees (f).
Remove the peaches from the smoker and place on separate dessert plates for serving.
