Soak the cedar plank in water for at least 1 hour.
Brush the cooking grates clean. Remove the soaked plank from the water and place it on the cooking grate over direct medium heat. Close the lid. After 5 to 10 minutes, when the plank begins to smoke and char, turn the plank over and place it over indirect medium heat. Put the salmon on the plank, skin side down, and cook, with the lid closed, until the salmon is just opaque in the center and begins to brown slightly around the edges, 25 to 35 minutes. Cooking time will vary according to the thickness of the fillet. Transfer the plank with the salmon to a heatproof surface.
