Filmed on location in the outdoors at the Esplendor Resort and Country Club at Rio Rico in southern Arizona, recipes alternate between daytime and evening filmings. An internationally inspired soundtrack provides the backdrop for a wide range of culinary delights drawn from Raichlen’s extensive worldwide travels in search of new and traditional barbecue.
As a grilling novice, I truly appreciate Raichlen’s introduction to the tools of grilling, and the safety tips that he provides throughout each grilling session. Even those just getting started will be taken by the hand and led through grill safety and cleanliness time and again. Viewers will have to suffer through some old-earth caveman quips (to be expected I suppose with a title including the word “primal”), but it’s well worth it to see a man so at ease with his craft at work firsthand.
