Behind the Scenes on the Set of Project Smoke

“Quiet on the set, please. Cameras rolling. ACTION!” With these words, our Director of Photography, Richard Dallett, launched the taping of Steven Raichlen’s next Public Television show, Project Smoke. Three months ago, Project Smoke was barely an idea. (That idea was to do for smoking and smokers what Primal Grill did for grilling.) By nightfall, February 20, a crew of 20 checked into our home for the next two weeks—the scenic JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort and Spa on the...

It's true, folks. Costco started carrying the boxed set of 8 DVDs, the complete collection of episodes from Seasons 1 and 2 of "Primal Grill". Apparently, some flame-loving staffer came up with the brilliant idea to play the DVDs...

NIGHT SHOOTS

LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT  Steven and the crew of "Primal Grill" are well-acquainted with nighttime in the Arizona desert.
