OWINGS MILLS, MD, May 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Steven Raichlen’s Project Smoke, the first how-to series to focus on smoking every type of food, launches its third season on public television starting Memorial Day weekend. Project Smoke stars live-fire cooking expert and author Steven Raichlen and is presented by Maryland Public Television. Project Smoke brings the arts of smoking and grilling from the competitive barbecue circuit to the American backyard. Filmed at the Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort in California’s historic Santa Ynez Valley in Santa Barbara’s wine country, season three features a new collection of smokers and grills, including a wood-burning plancha grill, a gravity-fed smoker cabinet, and a high-tech infrared grill. This season’s 13 episodes offer new smoking techniques for home chefs, such as herb smoking with a blowtorch, and curing and smoking bacon like pastrami. For fans of Steven Raichlen’s Primal Grill TV series, the new season brings a renewed emphasis on grilling for viewers who may not own smokers. During season three Project Smoke goes global, with episodes on Mexican and Pac-Rim smoke and global tailgating. Series fans can look forward to episodes on the BBQ Holy Trinity, Perfect Hog, Extreme Smoke, Hot Stuff, and Water Meets Fire. The coming season includes recipes for Korean pulled pork, cedar-planked king crab, Yankee porchetta, and smoke-grilled monster tomahawk steaks, to name just a few. Visit projectsmoke.org for more details and check local TV listings for Project Smoke airdates and times.

International Journal of Mass Spectrometry | Year: 2011

A quick and direct method for identifying organic components of papers in library and archival collections with minimal destructive sampling is needed for preservation, forensic, and general purposes. Direct analysis in real time mass spectrometry (DART-MS) is used for characterizing 16 reference papers of known manufacture in terms of their pulp composition and pitch contaminants. Unique mass spectra are obtained from bleached kraft, chemithermomechanical, and stone groundwood pulp papers in real time without extractions, derivatizations, chromatographic separations, and other time- and chemical-consuming sample preparations. Phytosteroids are volatilized from bleached hardwood kraft but not from bleached softwood kraft papers, which differentiates the two of them. The kraft papers are in turn differentiated from chemithermomechanical pulp papers by lignin-derived thermolyis products: syringyl products arise from hardwood, but guaiacyl and coumaryl products arise from softwood, chemithermomechanical pulp papers. Stone groundwood papers contain a number of extractives that are volatilized, which serve to differentiate them from all the other papers. Papers that contain rosin vs. alkyl ketene dimer (AKD) sizings are immediately differentiated. The DART-MS methodology is fast and simple, and the spectra are repeatable. Microsamples as small as ∼10 μg tweezed from the paper surface may be analyzed. These benchmark spectra are the prelude to further applications of DART-MS in paper research and the beginning of the development of a searchable library of DART-MS spectra of printing and writing papers by the Library of Congress.
