What You'll Need
1 Boneless, Skinless salmon fillet
I get mine at Costco
Cut it into 2-3 portions-use 1 piece at a time
1 grilling plank
also available at Costco
They come in a variety of wood types
tonight I re-used my cedar plank
4 TBL. Brown sugar
1 TSP Chili powder
1.5 TSP Garlic salt
.5 TSP Fresh Ground pepper
Thaw the salmon (if frozen). In order to prevent flare ups, soak the grilling plank for as long as possible before grilling. Tonight I only soaked mine for about 2 hours and that was sufficient. If it is a new plank and I hope to re use it (yes, you can re-use grilling planks) I would try to soak it all day.
Place the salmon on the plank. In a small bowl mix brown sugar, chili powder, garlic salt, and fresh ground pepper. Just in case taste your rub before you put it on the fish. Lick you finger, stick it in the rub and then lick that yummy seasoning off. This will tell you if you need more, less, what flavour stands out the most etc etc. Once you've adjusted the rub to the correct balance, rub over both sides of the salmon. Since salmon is a flavourful fish it can handle more seasoning than other fishes! Don't be stingy.

That's about it for prep work! Wasn't that easy? Now pop the grilling plank on your pre-heated grill. Keep heat at about medium or 400 degree Fahrenheit. 20 minutes for completely thawed salmon is a good amount of time. I like my salmon two ways-either 100% raw sashimi style, or 100% cooked.
There is NO in between.

That's dinner! Super fast and super delish!
You really can't go wrong with this one-no matter what time of year you make it!
