Welcome to Splendid Table Selects, our mini podcast where we share the interviews that inspired us or just made us better cooks. In this Selects, we visit with Steven Raichlen, the master of the grill and smoker, and author of many cookbooks including The Barbecue! Bible and Project Smoke. Most of us think of smokers as being almost exclusively used for cuts of meat like brisket, ribs, and pork shoulder. But, as Raichlen tells contributor Joe Yonan, there is an entire world of meatless uses for them: potatoes, eggs, cheese, even water and ice cream! Enjoy their conversation and try Raichlen's recipe for Double-Smoked Potatoes.
Our presenting sponsor is Bob’s Red Mill. So many of our favorite vegetarian recipes (including Joe Yonan's Peasant’s Bowl) call for beans. Bob's Red Mill has one of the finest selections of beans available. From black turtle to heritage orca and cranberry beans, there’s an abundance of choices.
