Primal Grill With Steven Raichlen
Steven Raichlen, creator of the popular public television series, Barbecue University and author of the award-winning, best-selling Barbecue Bible and How to Grill is back with a sizzling new show designed to help viewers take their grilling to the next level: PRIMAL GRILL WITH STEVEN RAICHLEN.

Below is a list of broadcasts scheduled to air in the next 60 days on any of our three channels.

Episode #310
Out of Africa
Africa. Where mankind, grilling, and civilization began. Today, we take you to this mysterious, multi-cultural continent, where complex flavors and grilling techniques show just how far we've evolved since a human ancestor called Homo erectus became the first animal to cook his dinner. For starters, a South African specialty-incendiary peri-peri chicken wings. Then a Cape Malay twist on shish kebab--sosaties-pork and lamb skewers perfumed with red wine, dried fruit, and curry. From Nairobi, our grand finale: Kenyan spit-roasted lamb with sweet sour mint glaze-a reminder of the once-long reach of the British Empire. Peri Peri Wings; Sosaties; Kenyan Spit-Roasted Lamb.

Episode #207
On The Vine
Beer may be the beverage served at a lot of American cook-outs, but much of the world's barbecue trail runs directly through regions famed for their wine. This show will focus on the important role vines and wines play in barbecue-the former as a wrapping and fuel; the latter as an ingredient in marinades and sauces. Trout grilled in grape leaves; red-wine marinated filet mignon; and an interesting twist on "beer can" chicken, made with cabernet sauvignon. So the next time you fire up your grill, don't forget your corkscrew. Trout grilled in grape leaves stuffed with Pesto and lemon slices; Red wine chicken with cabernet barbecue sauce; Wine- marinated filet mignons.

Episode #208
In The Fire
The first "grills" possessed neither grates nor burners. The grilling was done right in the embers. The march towards barbecue enlightenment hasn't completely eliminated this primal method of grilling. In this show, you'll learn how to roast eggplants in the embers to make Middle Eastern baba ghanouj and see how a caveman might have cooked sweet potatoes. Our main dish routinely makes eyes pop and jaws drop in Bogota, Colombia: beef tenderloin wrapped in salt and cloth and roasted in the embers. And for dessert, an ingenious twist on that campfire classic, the S'more. The real baba ghanouj, fire-roasted; Eggplant Lomo al trappo, whole beef tenderloin roasted in cloth; Roasted Sweet potatoes; Shortbread s'mores.

On The Rotisserie
Many of the world's great grill cultures cook their best barbecue on the rotisserie. Consider Brazil's rodizio, Greek souvlaki and gyro, and Morocco's majestic mechoui. To judge from your many e-mails, spit-roasting is a live fire cooking method our viewers would like to know more about. In this show, you'll learn how to grill a sausage - and cheese-stuffed rib roast, how to grill a Greek-style whole hog over a wood fire, and how to make Moroccan-style lamb ribs-cooked to a turn on a gas-fired rotisserie. Brazilian-style rib roast stuffed with sausage and cheese; Greek-style whole hog, with Greek Isle herbs; Mechoui lamb ribs with harissa sauce.

Episode #210
In a Pickle
Brining may seem like a relatively modern technique, but it's centuries, if not millennia, old. In fact, that's the origin of the English word pickle-pockel was the Old English word for brine. Brining has the dual advantages of keeping intrinsically dry foods, like pork chops and chicken breasts, moist on the grill, and it also adds an extra layer of flavor. In this show you'll learn all about brining and marinating, including a wine-brined butterflied leg of lamb, bourbon-brined pork chops, and a "brine" you actually inject into a turkey with a hypodermic needle. Butterflied leg of lamb, Korean-style; Bourbon-brined pork chops; Fireman's corn, soaked in sugar and salt water and grilled Cajun-style smoked turkey.

Episode #211
Up in Smoke
Spice may give barbecue its personality, but smoke is its heart and soul. This truth is obvious to anyone who has spent time in American barbecue country (in Texas or Kansas City, for example). What you may not realize is how universal smoking really is. In this show, you'll learn how to smoke Cousin Dave's chocolate chile ribs in an offset barrel smoker, Chinese-style duck in a water smoker, and ginger-stuffed smoked pears in a kettle grill. And because, as Raichlen's rule states: If something tastes good baked, fried, or sauteed, it probably tastes even better grilled. Smoked duck with Chinese seasonings; Cousin Dave's chocolate chile ribs; Smoke-roasted pears with lemon and ginger.

On The Wing
When we were growing up, barbecue meant chicken that was burned black as coal on the outside (the result of applying the sweet barbecue sauce too early), served half-raw inside, and perfumed with the scent of lighter fluid. If this sounds familiar, listen up. Here are three great fail-proof ways to grill chicken-yakitori-style, herb-scented game hens on the rotisserie, and Malaysian-style spatchcocked chicken. Yakitori chicken kebabs; Game hens flavored with herbs and mustard Malaysian Spatchcocked chicken.

A football game would be a sorry experience without tailgating. And tailgating revolves around grilling. Of course, just as the meaning of "football" varies around the world, so does what you grill. Whether the ball is oval or round, whether the game is football or soccer, this show will help you smoke the competition. Next up: grilled quesadillas; burgers two ways; and grilled pork chop "calzones." Grilled quesadillas; Burgers 2 ways: hamburgers with herb butter and Inside/out cheeseburgers; Grilled pork chop "calzones"- with pepperoni and cheese.

Episode #101
Smoke Screen
Smoke is the soul of true barbecue. As you climb the ladder of barbecue enlightenment, you'll want to be able to smoke a variety of foods in a variety of grills and smokers. This show explores four diverse foods: ribs, turkey, salmon, and even a dessert-prepared in a traditional offset barrel smoker, a water smoker, a charcoal grill, and a stovetop smoker. Sorry...no gas grills allowed. Tender Kansas City-style Spareribs, hickory smoked and served with a spicy apple BBQ sauce. Heart-healthy Turkey Pastrami smoked and served on fresh rye bread with sauerkraut and homemade Russian dressing. Sunday morning Smoked Salmon, done in a stovetop smoker, served with grilled toast points, capers, diced red onions, and sour cream. Tantalizingly sweet Raspberry-Pear crisp - who would've thought - dessert on the grill!

Episode #102
Kebabs of The World Unite
Meat on a stick represented the first technological leap forward in the evolution of barbecue. The popularity of kebabs and sates around the world attests to the universal appeal of skewered foods. So why do so many kebabs come on bamboo skewers with burnt ends or on metal skewers with raw onions, overcooked meat, and tomatoes that fall into the embers? If you've ever had trouble nailing the perfect shish kebab, or you want to expand your repertoire, this show is for you. Persian Quick Beef Kebabs - beef tenderloin, red-ripe plum tomatoes, Bermuda onions and Anaheim chili peppers - individually skewered and grilled to perfection. Swordfish Souvlaki - Cubed swordfish steak marinated in white wine and herbs and delicately threaded on skewers with onion and bay leaves. Savory Thai Chicken Sate - thinly sliced chicken breast woven onto bamboo skewers, quickly grilled and served on a fresh lettuce leaf with diced cucumber and a warm peanut sauce. Desert Kebabs: Asian Pear, fresh Fig, miniature Pineapple and buttery pound cake threaded on oversized cinnamon sticks, lightly grilled, and basted with Raichlen's mouth-watering butter rum glaze.

Episode #206
From The Garden.
Barbecue means meat to millions of grill masters, of course, but it's also about vegetables. Just ask one of India's 300 million vegetarians, who love tandoori (Indian barbecue pit cooking) every bit as much as a carnivore does. When it comes to bringing out the caramelized sweetness of a vegetable, nothing beats the searing heat of a grill. In this Episode, Steven will show you a barbecue where vegetarians will not feel like second-class citizens. On the menu? Grilled eggplant "caprese" salad; Indian pepper, tomato, and paneer cheese kebabs (served with Indian grilled puff pastry); and a "carb-haters" sandwich-grilled portabello mushrooms cheeseburgers. Grilled eggplant "caprese"; Indian pepper, tomato, and paneer cheese kebabs with mint chutney Side dish: Indian grilled "puff pastry"; Portobello mushroom cheeseburgers.

On The Range
Grilling brings out the cowboy in all of us. After all, smoked brisket originated in Texas cattle country and barbecue was brought to Missouri with the great cattle drives along the Chisholm Trail from Fort Worth to the meat-packing houses in Kansas City. This show will make you at home on the range, or at least at home with some of the smoked and grilled foods traditionally associated with America's cattle country: Hellfire T-bone steaks (with grilled jalapeno poppers to keep them company), smoked brisket, and, the newest addition to the "range"-free-range chicken grilled with herbed butter under the skin. Beef brisket with coffee rub and red-eye barbecue sauce; Hellfire T-bone steaks with tarragon butter; Jalapeno Poppers stuffed with ham and pepper jack cheese; Free-range Chicken stuffed under the skin with flavored butter.

Spanish Smoke
Long before Spanish culinary mad scientist Ferran Adria stunned the world with his foams, infusions, and molecular cuisine, grill masters from the Iberian peninsula were setting the world of barbecue, well, on fire. Like Basque grill master, Victor Arguinzoniz, whose grilled shrimp calls for olive oil and txakoli wine misted from spray bottles. Or Matias Gorrochatequi, whose salt-grilled steaks are a masterpiece of fiery simplicity. (Serve them with calcots, flame-grilled green onions dipped in romesco sauce.) Catalan cream, crusted with spiced raw sugar and dramatically caramelized with a fire-heated iron disk, brings the meal to an unforgettable close. Victor's Shrimp; Salt-Grilled Rib Steak; Catalan Cream.

By The Sea
Seafood may come from the water, but nothing brings out its briny succulence like the high, dry, smoky heat of the grill. This truth is readily apparent on the beaches of Brazil, at the waterfront grill stalls in Asia, and the seaside communities of the Yucatan. Here are three great grilled seafood dishes that solve the age-old problems of fish sticking to the grill grate or breaking apart when you go to turn it: Brazilian coconut grilled shrimp, Asian garlic grilled halibut, and snapper grilled in banana leaves, Yucatan-style. And grilled asparagus rafts make an appropriately nautical accompaniment. Brazilian coconut shrimp kebabs; Garlic-sesame halibut; Asparagus rafts; Snapper grilled in banana leaves.

Back before there were supermarkets (or barbecue grills), grill masters hunted, fished, gathered, and grilled in the wild. This show celebrates the primal pleasures of cooking wild foods with live fire. It starts with-what else? Wwild salmon from the Pacific Northwest grilled on cedar planks with a juniper and wild berry glaze. Our next course is grilled elk loin, marinated in wine and wrapped in bacon, and grilled wild mushrooms foraged in the forests of Washington State. Steven will even show you a wild dessert-a smoke-roasted wild fruit crumble. Cedar-planked wild salmon with a juniper and wild berry glaze; Wine-marinated Elk loin, with grilled mushrooms Smoke-roasted wild fruit crumble.

(Think of it as turbocharged egg salad.) Grilled tofu with pineapple, cucumber, and a chili-peanut dipping sauce from Malaysia. Grilled bananas with a spoon-licking caliber coconut-caramel sauce from Thailand (as good for breakfast or a snack as a dessert). And Israeli Eggplant Salad-proof that you don't need meat to show off your grilling skills. Israeli Smoked Egg Pate; Malaysian Grilled Tofu; Thai Coconut Bananas; Israeli Eggplant Salad.

More taste than time? There's no excuse not to fire up your grill. Travel the world's barbecue trail and you'll discover that in many countries, grilling is the original fast food. Here are three grilled masterpieces that let you assuage your hunger without making you break a sweat-basil-grilled tuna steaks, chicken breasts grilled under a brick, and coconut-grilled pineapple for dessert. Because there's simply no reason not to fire up the grill when you get home from work.

On The Bone
When it comes to flavor, you can't beat meat that's still attached to the bone. This simple truth is appreciated by anyone who has ever barbecued a rack of ribs, grilled a long-bone veal chop, or roasted a whole leg of lamb. Grilling and, more importantly, serving meat on the bone, transports us to a time back before the invention of knives and forks when barbecue buffs ate with their hands, chewing the fire-roasted meat right off the bone. Discover your inner caveman. Marinated veal chops with Catalan viniagrette; Smoke-Roasted leg of lamb Provencale; Kalbi qui, butterflied Korean short ribs.

Asia's Crossroads
Some of the world's biggest flavors come hot off some of the world's smallest grills. Proof positive? Sizzling beef sates-cut from well-marbled rib eye steaks and masterfully spiced with cumin, coriander, and turmeric from tiny Singapore. From Guam, where the sun first rises on American barbecue, comes a main-course chicken salad like your mother never made: smoked chicken with freshly grated coconut and vivifying doses of lime juice and chiles. Cambodia boasts some of the world's best grilled corn (basted with coconut milk), while Malaysia gives us a unique way for preparing swordfish: slathered with lemongrass paste, then wrapped and grilled in banana leaves-a popular Asian technique that not only keeps the fish moist, but that keeps it from sticking to the grill grate. Singapore Beef Sates; Guamian Chicken Salad; Malaysian Swordfish in Banana Leaves; Cambodian Corn.

Bombay Blast
More than 5000 years ago, a potter in Central Asia made a tall, urn-shaped, incredibly efficient clay barbecue pit-the origin of the Indian tandoor. Today, tandoori, Indian barbecue, is enjoyed from New Delhi to New Caledonia to New York. This show features tandoori salmon (washed with garlic water and marinated in spices, yogurt, and chickpea flour). Next up, two traditional Indian charcoal-grilled breads made from the same dough: naan and flaky, puff pastry-like lachha paratha, followed by fragrant Persian-inspired saffron chicken tikka kebabs. Best of all, each recipe can be cooked on a conventional grill, too. Tandoori Salmon; Indian Naan and Puff Pastry ; Chicken Tikka Kebabs.

Burn in The USA
The whole world grills, and a few countries smoke. But only one place on Planet Barbecue has highly evolved traditions of both-the U.S.A. (Of course, in the South, Midwest, and Texas, smoked meats are better known as barbecue.) In previous seasons of Primal Grill, we've shown you how to barbecue the familiar-chicken, ribs, and brisket. So here's a look at some less well-known regional live fire cooking: lobster the way we do it on Martha's Vineyard (my summer home); Texas beef clod-a massive cut from the shoulder that handily feeds a carnivorous horde; and Puerto Rican pork shoulder, seasoned with oregano and garlic, basted with annatto oil, and spit-roasted until the skin is shatteringly crisp and the meat fork-tender. Lobster Martha's Vineyard-Style; Texas Clod; Puerto Rican Pork Shoulder.

Since Roman times, the Italian focus-hearth-has made monumental contributions to the world of live fire cooking. A new addition to the Primal Grill equipment collection, an authentic Italian-style wood-burning oven, inspired this show's menu: two versions of Italy's iconic food, pizza, cooked on the floor of the oven but easily adapted to a conventional grill; wood oven-roasted sweet and sour duck; and monster bone-in pork chops glazed with a reduction of red wine, honey, and balsamic vinegar. Benissimo. Wood Oven Pizzas (Margherita and Bacon Potato); Sweet and Sour Duck; Grilled Pork Chops with Cipollini Onion Sauce; Grilled Cipollini Onions on Skewers.

Here are three indispensible gaucho favorites: Chicken roasted in a salt crust, from Uruguay's celebrity grill master, Francis Mallmann; the monster beef ribs that made the reputation of Brazil's famous grill house, Fogo de Chao; and a dessert from Brazil's cattle country, a pineapple you roast on the rotisserie.
