EcoWood has become much more than the "Island sawmill". It is a company dedicated to producing finished wood products, such as flooring, cabinetry, trim and decorative panels, in a sustainable manner. The company adheres to an eco-friendly mode of operation that is unique in the Apostle Islands region of Lake Superior and northwestern Wisconsin.
EcoWood uses only bio-diesel fuel to power its vehicles, sawmills and other machinery. All buildings and kilns are heated with scrap wood, burned in a high-efficiency boiler. Only wood harvested sustainably is used. EcoWood does not clear-cut any forested areas in the process of obtaining its raw material. And best of all, these beautifully-finished wood products are 100% native to Madeline Island.
In addition to their regular product line, EcoWood is now offering "Shoop Planks" for grilling fish, seafood and meat or vegetables. The planks come packaged with cooking directions, marinade recipe and a handy storage bag. These cooking planks make great holiday gifts!
Here are a couple of plank-grilling recipes, one for chicken and the other for plank-grilled salmon:
