Preheat the grill or barbecue to high heat. Meanwhile, soak the cedar plank in cool water for about 30 minutes.
Season the salmon with salt and pepper, and then spread a little brown sugar evenly over the top.
When the grill is hot, place the salmon, skin side down, on the wet cedar plank and place it on the grill. Close the lid and grill for 15 minutes or until cooked to desired degree of doneness. Remove and serve directly from the burnt cedar board.
