About Steven Raichlen

EWSflash | Jul 2, 2011 11:41 AM

i've seen Steven Raichlen referred to as a douchebag or something similar several times in print, don't remember exactly where. I watch his shows when I can, they are educational, and I don't see any bad attitude or arrogance that stands out. I looked his bio up on Wikipedia, and the guy has had a lot of very impressive training. The show is formulaic to a degree, but it's nearly always educational and the food looks wonderful almost all the time.
My question- what's your opinion of him and his shows? If you think he's a douchebag or jerk or pinhead, why? Did you attend one of his BBQ U classes? What did you think of it?
