Shoulders and Bellies (Episode #102H)

KQED Life: Sun, May 21, 2017 -- 6:00 PM

If you want to enjoy the perfect ratio of crust to meat to fat, smoke a shoulder or belly. These fatty and often tough cuts were once considered poor man's food. But blast them with assertive seasonings and smoke them low and slow and you get meats that are beyond flavorful. In this show you'll learn how to smoke a luscious barbecued Berkshire pork belly and house-cured pastrami. You'll experience a Kentucky-style barbecued lamb shoulder with an unusual black barbecue sauce (called "dip" in local parlance). And to wash them down, a smoked Manhattan. Ceramic cooker, offset smoker, electric smoker, and handheld smoking device. Project Smoke has you covered. Recipes: Barbecued Pork Belly; House-Cured Pastrami; Barbecued Lamb Shoulder with Black Dip; Smoked Manhattan.

Smoking 101 (Episode #101H)

KQED Life: Sun, May 14, 2017 -- 6:00 PM

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.

Behind The Smoke (Episode #213H)

KQED 9: Sun, May 14, 2017 -- 1:30 PM

Did you ever wonder what goes into making a TV show like Project Smoke? This show takes you behind the scenes for a unique look at how we build the set, plan the menus, fire up the smokers, and smoke the food you see me and the crew taste. Plus, never before seen recipes with some of our favorites, and other smoky surprises.

The Big Smoke (Episode #212H)

KQED 9: Sun, May 7, 2017 -- 1:30 PM

Good things come in small packages? Maybe for jewelry, but not when it comes to barbecue. This show is all about thinking big and smoking big-with brined monster-thick smoked pork chops; wood-roasted Cape Town lamb; and spectacular smoked whole suckling pig. Our grand finale? Chocolate bread pudding hot off the smoker. Because sometimes bigger really is better. Triple-thick pork chops; Cape Town lamb; Smoked chocolate bread pudding; Smoked suckling pig, vinegar slaw, and vinegar sauce.
