Pat Martin Explores Barbecue Traditions in “Life of Fire

New series on Outdoor Channel showcases time-honored cooking methods across America.

Life of Fire, a new series premiering on Outdoor Channel on Monday, May 6, at 8 p.m. CT / 9 p.m. ET, is hosted by legendary pitmaster Pat Martin. The show is dedicated to showcasing the nation’s varied and time-honored cooking traditions over the course of 10 weekly episodes. Martin intentionally features the arduous, old methods of barbecue and live-fire cooking, each with its own unique style and story to tell.

The series was created by Martin and produced by Intuitive Content, founded by culinary giant Andrew Zimmern and industry legend Patrick Weiland. Martin, one of the only three pitmasters left practicing the art of West Tennessee-style whole hog barbecue, showcases different techniques and practices from across the country and fosters conversations surrounding the importance of keeping these dying customs alive.

Viewers can expect to learn about old-school cooking methods from various states, as well as some international traditions from places like Greece and Laos. Martin speaks the language of time-honored cooking traditions and is at home in the culture of wood, smoke, and coals to tell the cultural foodways of cooking over fire.

Life of Fire airs exclusively on Outdoor Channel and is available to cable and satellite customers throughout the United States, as well as for streaming via Sling TV, Hulu Live TV, Fubo, Frndly TV, and more.
