Primal Grill with Steven Raichlen

Latest Episodes

When it comes to European grilling, Italy and Greece grab the headlines. Here's a look of some of Europe's lesser-known grilling traditions. From Belgium, it's briny oysters grilled with an uncommon (and uncommonly delectable) combo of ginger, soy sauce, and fruit jam. Serbia gives us boned chicken thighs, stuffed and grilled with bacon, ham, and cheese. And from Germany comes the best barbecue you've never heard of-spiessbraten-butterflied pork shoulder stuffed with onions and garlic and spit-roasted over beech wood.

When it comes to flavor, you can't beat meat that's still attached to the bone. This simple truth is appreciated by anyone who has ever barbecued a rack of ribs, grilled a long-bone veal chop, or roasted a whole leg of lamb. Grilling and, more importantly, serving meat on the bone, transports us to a time back before the invention of knives and forks when barbecue buffs ate with their hands, chewing the fire-roasted meat right off the bone. Discover your inner caveman. Marinated veal chops with Catalan viniagrette; Smoke-Roasted leg of lamb Provencale; Kalbi qui, butterflied Korean short ribs.

Whether you're a vegetarian, feeding someone who doesn't eat meat, or simply crave meatless grilling from time to time, this show is for you. Smoked egg pate from Israel. (Think of it as turbocharged egg salad.) Grilled tofu with pineapple, cucumber, and a chili-peanut dipping sauce from Malaysia. Grilled bananas with a spoon-licking caliber coconut-caramel sauce from Thailand (as good for breakfast or a snack as a dessert). And Israeli Eggplant Salad-proof that you don't need meat to show off your grilling skills.
