“Where there’s smoke, there’s Steven Raichlen!” - USA Today
The man who demystified grilling and barbecuing for millions of Americans returns to Public Television with a second sizzling season of his popular new show, Steven Raichlen’s Project Smoke. The timing couldn’t be better, as smoking is now the fastest growing segment of the barbecue and grill industry.
In Season 2, Raichlen takes smoked foods—and drinks—in directions you never dream of… from a smoking Mezcalini cocktail to Spruce-Smoked Steaks and Smoked Chocolate Bread Pudding… From Smoked Shrimp and Corn Chowder to Honey Ham Ribs with an addictive Mustard Seed “Caviar.” Whiskey-Brown Sugar Pork Loin? Check. Rotisserie-Smoked Chicken? Of course. Plus Danish Smoked Shrimp, Mexican Barbacoa, and Chinese Barbecued Pork Belly Steamed Buns. Yes, there will be smoke-grilled Sangria and smoke-burnished Suckling Pig. You’ll even see a Project Smoke first: Hickory-Smoked Ice Cream for dessert.
As always, Raichlen focuses not just on recipes, but on the essential techniques, such as hot smoking, cold smoking, smoke-roasting, and ember-smoking. You’ll learn how to smoke with logs, wood chunks, wood chips, pellets, spices, herbs, and even hay. Raichlen also reveals the secrets of some of the world’s top smoke masters in 13 riveting smoke-filled episodes.
Filmed against a stunning palm tree and mountain backdrop in Palm Springs, California, Project Smoke uses smokers and grills from around the world… Ceramic tiled kamado cookers from Indonesia… Steel offset smokers from Kansas... Drum smokers from Colorado… Argentinean-style stainless steel grills… Charcoal, gas, electric, and water smokers… And even special units made for indoor use, like stovetop smokers and handheld smokers.
From marquee chefs to weekend grillers, interest is growing to harness the hunger-inducing powers of wood smoke. And Raichlen, the world’s foremost authority on live fire cooking, is just the person to teach them. “Smoking is the new grilling,” Raichlen says. His message is simple: “Don’t be intimidated by smoke. You can do this!”
