Primal Grill with Steven Raichlen

Primal Grill® with Steven Raichlen is the biggest, baddest, most comprehensive grilling show yet, with easy-to-follow instruction, close-up step-by-step technique sequences, and mouth-watering, in-your-face food shots.

This series is themed by place, such as “In the Wild,” in which Steven Raichlen shows viewers how to grill game and other wild foods, or “From the Farm,” which demonstrates how to grill the freshest fruits and vegetables. In addition, there will be a few occasion-oriented shows, such as “At the Game,” which focuses on grilling for sports fans, and “In a Hurry,” for people with more taste than time. Sizzling new recipes will range from a bigger-than-life Greek whole spit-roasted hog to lomo al trappo, Colombia’s singular beef tenderloin wrapped in salt and cloth and grilled right in the embers.

As in Primal Grill®100, we'll also include Steven's legendary fireside "chats" about his personal grilling experiences and philosophy, but this year, the chats will focus on his travels around the world's barbecue trail. Photos from Steven's travels will be superimposed on the screen.

Based on Raichlen’s best-selling The Barbecue Bible 10th Anniversary Edition, an updated version of his 1998 global grilling odyssey, Primal Grill’s menu of episodes pairs internationally inspired entrees with colorful side dishes that sizzle. Each week, viewers’ taste buds will travel to different parts of the world to explore the primal fascination of cooking over crackling flames and burning embers.

Credited with reinventing American Barbecue, Raichlen’s signature easy-to-follow teaching style both entertains and educates viewers. From basic charcoal grills to today’s extravagant outdoor kitchens, plus all the sauces, rubs and accessories you can imagine, Raichlen covers all the bases necessary to build viewer loyalty, confidence and talent at the grill.
