NEW YORK, NY - April 25, 2013 - Chef Roger Mooking, returns to Cooking Channel for the second season of Man Fire Food, premiering Monday, June 3rd at 9:30pm ET/6:30pm PT. Roger's fascination with flames continues as he travels across the country in search of the most inventive ways to cook with fire, and this season the heat is hotter and the flavors are bolder. From traditional Hawaiian grub smoked in an underground lava pit to whole ducks on Brazilian skewers cooked on top of an outdoor oven, each stop delivers sizzling recipes and out-of-this-world heat.

Over the course of the series, Roger discovers the most innovative smokers, fire pits, and rigs the country has to offer along with chefs and home cooks who are manning the machines and preparing delicious and flavorful dishes. In one episode, Roger ventures to a farmer's market in Oahu, Hawaii, where he and a local resident take the art of smoking to a whole new level. They smoke pork, meat and turkey tails with guava and kiawe wood in a smoker crafted from the most unlikely materials - an Air Force cargo container, an airplane food cart, and a computer fan. Another journey takes Roger to St. Helena in Northern California where Chef Stephen Barber celebrates Argentinian Asado to the fullest at Farmstead Restaurant. Chef Stephen built a cook area complete with an eighty-five gallon cauldron, planchas, and metal crosses for the asado. The end result is a slow-cooked spring lamb seasoned to perfection with Mediterranean flavors.

Plus, Roger looks back at some of his favorite Man Fire Food moments in an hour-long special Man Fire Food: Coolest Cookouts airing Sunday, June 2nd at 8pm ET/5pm PT. From locations big and small, Roger highlights his most memorable visits and impressive recipes.

Roger Mooking is the host and co-creator of his own internationally broadcast television series Everyday Exotic and host of Man Fire Food on Cooking Channel. He is the co-host of the hit show Heat Seekers on Food Network. To add to his growing plate, Roger's highly anticipated first cookbook Everyday Exotic: The Cookbook hit shelves in 2011. In addition Mooking is the recording artist and creator of Soul Food; a unique food and music project released by Warner Music. For Roger, music and the epicurean world are seamless. One feeds the body, the other the soul; it is all food in all its various forms.

Man Fire Food is produced by IW Productions LLC.
