In this show, we cast metaphorical nets in the sea, over land, and in the air, working the Project Smoke magic on classic surf and turf. First, a smoked shrimp cocktail fired up with chipotle chiles and served with an electrifying Yucatan orange cocktail sauce. Next, fresh trout stuffed with lemon and dill, wrapped with bacon, and smoked on cedar planks in a mammoth ceramic cooker.

Multi-award-winning author, journalist, cooking teacher and TV host Steven Raichlen takes a side journey away from classic grilling to explore the rich flavors of smoked food in the 13-part series STEVEN RAICHLEN'S PROJECT SMOKE. PROJECT SMOKE is a "how-to" cooking show that focuses on the art of smoking techniques and recipes from hot smoking and cold smoking to smoke roasting and "smoke-tisserie" cooking. Using traditional and cutting-edge techniques in must-try recipes, the grilling and smoking authority shows how to smoke a variety of iconic foods, such as Texas brisket, Kansas City ribs and Carolina pork shoulder. In several episodes, Steven also demonstrates smoking dishes not known for being smoked, such as vegetables, pizza and dessert. There's even an episode devoted to urban dwellers on how to make smoked eggplant dip, smoked gazpacho, stovetop smoked salmon and smoked ice cream.
