Steven Raichlen's Project Smoke - Smoking 101

Smoke. It's the soul of barbecue, and you know it when you smell it and taste it. In this show you'll learn how to harness the flavor-enhancing power of smoke, starting with the essential techniques of hot smoking, cold smoking, and smoke-roasting. You'll also learn how to use an electric smoker, offset smoker, and upright barrel smoker. And that's just in the first episode. On the menu: Cold Smoked Scallops with Smoked Tomatoes and Jicama Salsa; Smoke-roasted Chicken with Horseradish Glaze, and Apple Smoked Baby Back Ribs with Prickly Pear Barbecue Sauce-the latter inspired by Project Smoke's taping location in the scenic Sonoran desert. Recipes: Cold-Smoked Scallops with Smoked Tomatoes, Jicama-Mango Salsa; Smoke-Roasted Chicken with Horseradish Glaze; Apple-Smoked Ribs with Prickly Pear Barbecue Sauce.
