- Preheat a gas grill to high; adjust to medium low after 15 minutes. (If cooking over charcoal, allow the coals to burn until they are covered with white ash.)
- Place the salmon skin-side down on the cedar plank.
- Combine the brown sugar, oil, thyme, and cayenne in a bowl. Spread over the salmon.
- Place the planked salmon on the grilling grate and cook, with grill covered, about 40 minutes or just until the surface fat begins to turn white.
