For Easter and Passover: Our Secret for Premium Lamb

For Easter and Passover: Our Secret for Premium Lamb

Speaking from the set of Project Fire, his latest TV show, Steven said, “That was the best lamb I’ve ever eaten.” No surprise there, as the steaks and chops were sent to the recent shoot by John and Sukey Jamison of Jamison Farm. (We always try to acquire the very best food for the cameras, and they’ve been supplying Steven’s shows for many years.) Their contact info has been in the “little black books” of the country’s top chefs and restaurants for decades....

Grill to Thrill: Cavemanning (Cooking in the Embers)

Grill to Thrill: Cavemanning (Cooking in the Embers)

Some of the best moments in life occur when we’re not completely in control. Zip-lining. Falling in love. Live-fire cooking. As an industry, grilling and barbecuing seem to be moving toward the “set it and forget it” mentality, marketing grills and smokers that have more in common with kitchen appliances than the primal cooking fires that have sustained mankind for millennia. Don’t lose touch with that powerful, seductive, unpredictable, sometimes violent element....

How to Grill the Perfect Steak

How to Grill the Perfect Steak

Thousands of students have graduated from Barbecue University, the intense hands-on course in live-fire cooking I’ve been teaching since 2001. And nearly all have a common goal: to learn how to grill the perfect steak—crusty on the outside, juicy and sanguine on the inside, and deftly seasoned. Even among intrepid grillers, the fear factor is high with beefsteak. Miscalculate the cooking time by mere minutes, and you’ve potentially devalued your investment—which is usually substantial—and...
