| Building on the popularity of his hit series Barbecue University, Raichlen’s fifth season on national public television features an intercontinental view of the world’s oldest and most primal cooking method – grilling over a live flame.
Based on Raichlen’s best-selling The Barbecue Bible 10th Anniversary Edition, an updated version of his 1998 global grilling odyssey, Primal Grill’s menu of episodes pairs internationally inspired entrees with colorful side dishes that sizzle. Each week, viewers’ taste buds will travel to different parts of the world to explore the primal fascination of cooking over crackling flames and burning embers.
Credited with reinventing American Barbecue, Raichlen’s signature easy-to-follow teaching style both entertains and educates viewers. From basic charcoal grills to today’s extravagant outdoor kitchens, plus all the sauces, rubs and accessories you can imagine, Raichlen covers all the bases necessary to build viewer loyalty, confidence and talent at the grill.
Shot entirely on location at the renowned Tubac Golf Resort and Spa near Tucson, Primal Grill co-stars the stunning Arizona mountains, giving viewers a more authentic grilling experience. The series also has a fresh new look with updated graphics and music, as well as new camera techniques like the “floating camera” which gives viewers an intimate look from overhead at the grilling action.
