He set it on the far side of the coals, and on the hot side he threw in a few handfuls of hay, closed the lid and let the hay smoke the meat. In a few minutes, the steaks were smoked but still cold! Then he raked the coals and grilled them. What a great idea! I'd have to go out looking for some hay, of course.

PBS has posted other cooking show's episodes, not this one, so far. I give it thumbs up for nothing doing Saturday PBS viewing...nothing else was on. No big whoop...wanna fight about it?

The only cooking shows I watch are ATK, Cooks Country, and Jacques Pepin. Then I like Sunday nights Masterpiece Theater. But I can't seem to get into the present Summer Heat. Or whatever it is called. It takes placer in India. I am just waiting for Doc Martin and Downton Place to return.

I saw one of Raichlen's Project Smoke episodes quite by accident recently, and DVR'ed them. I enjoy it, too.

If I recall, one of our other members also uses hay for smoking - I think it might be Joey/Salt and Pepper.

Thank god for PBS. Frontline is one of the finest shows on TV. The American Experience is another.

Which Hollywood factory crap escapism TV show were we discussing?

Leisurely Saturday afternoons, I tune into PBS TV on Saturdays and their cooking shows.
I guess that's all I wanted to add.

The thing here in the US we do not appreciate, is the British shows we get are the cream of the crop. When we were in England, one of the more exciting shows we watched was sheep herding, and another one on lawn bowling!
BTW, Addie, the name of the show is Downton Abbey

Caslon, I've found some good cooking shows on PBS just by leisurely viewing, too!

Sous....LOL - Somehow I envisioned British TV to be a little more entertaining.

Nope, dead bodies and bad guys. Besides, Angie Harmon and her character make me think of our daughter even more than Sandra Bullock. One of these days I'm going to have to post a poll with Loverly's photo and one each of Bullock and Harmon, then have you guys vote on which actress out daughter could pass as.

I love Rizzoly and Isles. Oh, and being a man, they both are so darn cute I like them even more.
