steven raichlen's project fire
Charm City 'que

Baltimore may lack the barbecue bona fides of Houston or Kansas City. But the town where I grew up boasts plenty of awesome foods for grilling. Pit beef was born here, and this jaw-stretching sandwich of grilled top round sliced tissue-thin and piled high on a kaiser roll with fiery tiger sauce, remains some of the best barbecue on a bun. In the seafood department you find a sweet white-fleshed fish the rest of the world calls striped bass and we Baltimoreans still know, love, and grill by the name of rockfish. And speaking of Charm City specialties, no meal would be complete without local chocolate top cookies-today reimagined as s'mores. Because sometimes, the food you grew up with remains the food nearest and dearest to your heart. GRILLED ROCKFISH WITH SHALLOT, FIG AND POMEGRANATE SAUCE; PIT BEEF TRIPLE DECKER WITH TIGER SAUCE; CHARM CITY S'MORES.

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.
