Steven Raichlen’s Project Fire premieres nationwide this summer on public TV

Latest ‘must watch’ TV series from the man who reinvented modern American barbecue


OWINGS MILLS, MD, March 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- International bestselling author and renowned television host Steven Raichlen will launch a new public television series premiering just in time for this summer’s barbecuing season. Steven Raichlen’s Project Fire offers viewers an insightful exploration of how Americans grill today and how people will grill and smoke tomorrow.

Steven Raichlen’s Project Fire, filmed on location at the 10,000-acre Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort in California’s scenic Santa Ynez Valley, explores the latest trends and techniques in contemporary grilling, using a dynamic format that includes on-set guests, off-road field trips and a surprising collection of new tools, fuels, grills, and smokers.  The series’ field segments feature some of the most talked about live-fire restaurants in Southern California, from Industrial Eats and The Bear and Star in the Santa Ynez Valley to Gwen, Charcoal Venice, Chi Spacca, Park’s Barbeque, and Odys + Penelope in Los Angeles.

The new series reveals an inspiring range of techniques to elevate the backyard grilling experience, from ember-roasting to high-tech spit-roasting.  Raichlen also introduces new foods, from unfamiliar steak cuts to eco-friendly seafood, and new twists on popular classics, from pastrami beef ribs to wood-fired paella.

Upcoming Steven Raichlen’s Project Fire season one episode highlights include Grilling 24/7 (yes, he grills eggs), Extreme Grilling (using hot iron, live embers, and more), and The Vineyard Grill (exploring the intimate connection between grilling and wine).  Viewers also get insights on such Raichlen innovations as brisket tacos, pork loin “Reuben,” finger-burner lamb chops, and orange-mint mojo grilled lobsters.  Of course, Raichlen grills dessert, from Brazilian pineapple to cedar planked chocolate brownie s’mores, along with smoked peach Bellinis to wash them down.

The new series comes from the same production team that brought viewers Steven Raichlen’s Project Smoke and Primal GrillSteven Raichlen’s Project Fire is a co-production of Maryland Public Television, Barbacoa, Inc. and Resolution Pictures.

They've been lying to us all along, and cheaters prosper

"Cheaters never prosper." Oh, really? In my 63 years of life, I've watched in amazement and sometimes horror as the people who cut corners and copy the work of others rise to the top, gaining status, power and wealth. Even in low-wage professions, the worst workers often rise to management positions.

They told us when we were children that we could be successful if we followed the rules, were kind to others and worked hard. They lied to us.

I've watched i disbelief as the best employees in fast food, factory work and education got shunted to the side, while the brown-nosers got promoted without so much as breaking a sweat. Dad's uncle, for example, rose through the Navy ranks during WW2 to eventually become an admiral. He was in charge of supplies for the Pacific Fleet, based in Hawaii. However, since he didn't go to the Academy, the other admirals refused to play golf with Edgar Chapman. He was the lowest rank of admiral, and the only way to rise higher was by playing golf with other admirals. Doing a good job didn't profit him.

On top of that, it really does matter where you came from. If your parents didn't mix with the right people, your first job was pumping gas or feeding snakes at a pet shop or handing out donuts and coffee. Their first job was an internship with a desk, a badge and a business suit, as well as a salary that was more than what their work was worth.

Doing well in school can help with your career, but you will never get a job that enables you to pay off your student loans, unless you "known somebody". It also helps to have wealthy parents who are willing and able to pay your tuition, thus avoiding the student loan trap. Meanwhile, tuition has skyrocketed. At the junior college, I paid $50 a semester. At the four-year college, I paid $600 a term. What do you pay now? Your books cost more than what I paid for tuition in the 1970s.

Wages and salaries, on the other hand, have not risen much. You are stuck with low wages, unless you know somebody or your parents mixed with the right people. If you have one or both of those advantages, you don't have to do a good job. A third advantage is available to cheaters, and they do prosper. They suck up to their superiors, and they steal the work of others, and they rise to the top.

The rest of us are stuck going to work to earn the money to keep the car that gets us to work.

They lied to us. Yet I can't bring myself to cheat or to steal the work of others. It just isn't in me.

Get $3 when you sign up for Swagbucks in March (US)

The fun at Swagbucks is matched by the earnings you can enjoy. 

Want some extra boost for your budget this month? 

If you haven't tried Swagbucks before, you can get a bonus $3 for signing up as my referral in March. Swagbucks is a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you're probably doing online already, like searching, watching videos, discovering deals, and taking surveys. Then you take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart, Target, or PayPal cash. 

When you sign up through me, you can earn an additional $3 bonus! Here's how: 

1. Sign up using this link 
2. Earn 300 SB total before 4/1/18. You'll get a $3 (300 SB) bonus for it! 

3. If you want even more bonuses, you'll get a $10 (1000 SB rebate) bonus for making your first shop purchase! That's in addition to the SB you earn for every dollar you spend.  

That's it. It's super easy, and Swagbucks is for real. I use it myself, and I've earned $15 in February, and a total of $748.87 since I joined Swagbucks. I get Amazon gift cards and Paypal cash.
