His 30 books (two of them million + bestsellers) and public television shows — “Primal Grill,” “Barbecue University,” and the new “Project Smoke” — have redefined modern American barbecue. He also hosts two French language barbecue shows — “Le Maitre du Grill” and “La Tag Barbecue.” Steven’s books have won five James Beard Awards and three IACP — Julia Child Awards and have been translated into 17 languages.

Steven has competed against — and defeated — an Iron Chef on Japanese television. He has lectured on the history of barbecue at the Smithsonian Institution and Harvard University, and he founded “Barbecue University” at The Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs. He has written for The New York Times, Esquire, GQ, and all the major food magazines. Steven holds a degree in French literature from Reed College in Portland, Oregon, and studied medieval cooking in Europe on a Thomas J. Watson Foundation Fellowship.
