You can totally use this box/pan as a baking dish. Everything from cakes and brownies, to shepherd’s pie and macaroni and cheese. Get creative and have fun with this crazy thing.
On a flat work surface place the plank on one of its long edges. Lay one shim on the edge of of the plank, ensuring the thick end of the shim is square with the corner and the edge; this will be the bottom of the roasting pan. Hammer a nail about 1 inch from the corner of the plank as close to the center of the width as possible. Repeat on the end of the shim with a second nail. You may choose to hammer a nail in the center as well. Trim any excess shim hanging off the edge and discard. Repeat with the remaining three edges of the plank to make a 3–4 inch deep roasting pan.
When baking or adding very fluid ingredients to this pan, its a good idea to add a few more nails around the corners of the shims, just for insurance. This can be a little tricky since the shims are thin and split easily when the nail doesn’t go in just right. Stick it out, the first time is tricky but it’s amazing how simple this is to make.
Happy Grilling! (or in this case PLANKING)
