Excited? That doesn’t begin to express the emotion. After years of planning and months of shooting and editing, my new TV show, Project Smoke, launches on Saturday, June 27 (and in some cities July 4th weekend or later this summer). Our mission: to do for smoking what Primal Grill did for grilling.
The 13-week series focuses on traditional and cutting-edge smoking techniques. New twists on the iconic smoked foods, such as Texas brisket, Carolina pulled pork, and Scandinavian smoked salmon. Dishes you would never dream you could smoke, from cocktails to dessert. Each show runs 30 minutes.
So what makes Project Smoke different than my previous shows?
Smoking is the fastest growing segment of the American grill and barbecue industry. It’s about to get even hotter with Steven Raichlen’s Project Smoke. USA Today summed it up perfectly: “Where there’s smoke, there’s Steven Raichlen.”
