Red White and Blue Cedar Planked Brie

Happy Fourth of July! And what better way to enjoy the day than with red white and blue cedar planked Brie. Wonderful creamy, soft, yummy cheese. A hint of cedar aroma and flavor. Sweet honey. A combination of both roasted and fresh berries. This is the perfect appetizer, right off the grill! This makes celebrating Independence day even more fun!

Red White and Blue Cedar Planked Brie

You can get as little or as much cedar flavor and aroma as you like. Charring the plank before adding the cheese will release some of those cedar oils. Less charring, less cedar. It’s that easy! Just don’t go crazy with it, there is a such thing as too much cedar!

Don’t buy any el cheap cedar planks for this or any other dish. Get the good stuff and you won’t ever look back. Cheap planks split, warm and have splinters. Good planks are thicker, stay flat and have smoother edges.

We both love the combination of cooked and fresh berries on this red white and blue cedar planked Brie. You get a wonderful textural difference, along with contrasting flavors. They’re really great! We used raspberries and blueberries, but really whatever berries you like will be just fine.

Also try my cedar planked Twinkies.

  • 1 wheel Brie at room temperature
  • honey to taste
  • blueberries fresh, rinsed, patted dry
  • raspberries fresh, rinsed, patted dry
  • Crackers for serving


  • Fire up your grill for high heat cooking around 400 F. I like to start my plank over direct heat then move it to indirect heat once the plank has a good char on it. If you're using a gas grill you can start over high heat then turn down the gas to finish softening the cheese.
  • Unwrap cheese and place in the center of the plank.
  • Drizzle the cheese with honey and sprinkle with berries. Use as many or as few as you want.
  • Grill for 20-25 minutes or until the Brie is nice and soft. Remove.
  • Sprinkle with more fresh berries and serve with crackers.
