Grilling 24/7

The time of day or night matters little to the world's hardcore pit masters, who think nothing of firing up grills or smokers or wood-burning ovens for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even a late night snack. I often start my day with a barbecue breakfast, such as farm eggs grilled in a cast iron skillet with cream, crusty bread crumbs, Parmesan, and crisp shards of prosciutto. For lunch, we have wood-fired pizzas from the popular eclectic Industrial Eats in Buellton, California. Spice-crusted pastrami beef ribs make a spectacular supper, and for a midnight snack, Steven makes South African grilled Cheese sandwiches, smoky and salty with bacon and sweet and fruity with mango chutney.

Grilling with Wood

It's the world's most ancient grilling method, and to my mind, it remains the best. It's practiced on six continents by traditionalists and cutting-edge chefs alike. Propane offers convenience and charcoal burns hot, but the ultimate fuel for grilling is wood. Wood smoke contains more than a thousand flavor-producing compounds: It's the one fuel that delivers both heat and taste.

Brisket 24 / 7

Brisket is simultaneously the easiest and hardest meat to barbecue. Easy, because it requires only three ingredients: salt, pepper, and wood smoke. Hard, because, unless you master the fire, airflow, and temperature, the stall, the wrap, and the rest, you wind up with a mouthful of misery. Today's show is all about brisket, complete with fail proof methods for smoking it right every time. From not so traditional Texas barbecue and a distinctive bacon-smoked brisket flat to an electrifying Vietnamese brisket salad. You'll even learn how to make breakfast-worthy Tex-Mex brisket tacos.

Gulf Coast Grill

Steinhatchee, Florida, population 1500, perches on the north shore of the historic Steinhatchee River where it joins the Gulf of Mexico. What better place to tape a show on the spirited seafood-rich grilling of the Gulf Coast? From Louisiana, with its blackened redfish-today grilled "on the half shell" (you'll see why on the show) . To the Florida shrimp boil, here, deconstructed and flame-charred on the grill. And, yes, there will be oysters and clams-invigorated by the sweet scent of wood smoke. Today, we're exploring the grilling of one of the most colorful coastal regions in North America.
