Wine Country Grill
steven raichlen's project fire

The deep connection between wine and barbecue dates back millennia and still runs deep as ever. In the rustic wine country of the Santa Ynez Valley where we tape Project Fire, grape vines are used as fuel and wine for marinades and sauces. Here's how the fruit of the vine meets the power of fire. First up: special Jidori-breed chicken breasts stuffed with country ham and dry-aged Sonoma Jack cheese grilled over a grape vine fire. Next, flank steak with Pinot Noir mushroom sauce grilled over charcoal and oak. Finally, chef John Cox from the Bear and Star restaurant smokes a whole bourbon-soaked wagyu strip loin that's been aged three years. GRAPEVINE-GRILLED CHICKEN BREASTS WITH PROSCIUTTO AND MONTEREY JACK; WINE-MARINATED FLANK STEAK WITH PINOT NOIR MUSHROOM SAUCE; BOURBON-AGED STRIP LOIN SMOKED OVER OAK.

About Steven Raichlen's Project Fire:

In his groundbreaking Barbecue University television series, Steven Raichlen taught the world how to grill.

In the popular sequel Primal Grill, viewers were taken on a virtual tour of global grilling.

And in Project Smoke, Raichlen brought the arts of barbecuing and smoking from the competition circuit to the American home.

Deciding it was time to turn up the heat, Steven introduces his hottest series yet, PROJECT FIRE, a new and insightful exploration of how we grill today, and how we will grill and smoke tomorrow.

With a dynamic new format that includes on-set guests and off-road field trips, innovators of live fire cooking join Steven to share revolutionary new techniques that elevate the backyard barbecue experience - from ember-roasting and salt slab grilling to fire-heated iron and high tech rotisseries.

STEVEN RAICHLEN'S PROJECT FIRE introduces new foods - from unfamiliar cuts of steak to eco-friendly seafood - and new twists on popular classics, such as entire meals cooked on the grill, from breakfast to paella to clambakes.

And, as usual, Steven features a collection of new tools and fuels for the avid griller.
