Planet Barbecue with Steven Raichlen

Fifteen years ago, Steven Raichlen embarked on an extraordinary journey. He set out to travel the world's barbecue trail—to experience the world of live-fire cooking from Indonesian sate to Indian tandoori to Italian bistecca alla fiorentina. He explored how a country's barbecue reflects its culture and how that culture determines what people grill. His 500,000-mile odyssey has taken him to more than 50 countries on six continents. And now that adventure comes alive in all its sizzling excitement in a PBS broadcast extravaganza: Planet Barbecue ™.

Planet Barbecue will take TV viewers on a mouth-watering tour of the world’s barbecue trail, from the kebab parlors of Istanbul to the churrascarias of Brazil to an authentic South African safari brai. Along the way, we’ll meet Japan’s most acclaimed yakitori master, a madcap barbecue iconoclast in Spain (grilled eggs and smoked ice cream, anyone?), and the octogenarian owner of the most famous grill parlor in Morocco. We’ll visit a reconstructed Neanderthal village in southwestern France (to learn how our prehistoric ancestors grilled); a tandoor factory in New Delhi (to watch the construction of the world’s oldest type of barbecue pit), and a kiln built into a Japanese cave used to make bincho tan—the world’s most expensive charcoal.
