100 Degrees and Grilling

On June 9th and 10th, so far the hottest days of the summer, photographer Andrew Purcell joined a cast of culinary all-stars on the set of Martha Stewart's Grilling Secrets of the Master Chefs which premieres Friday June 24th at 8pm on The Hallmark Channel. Andrew and his team braved 100-degree heat and the intermittent threat of thunderstorms to capture these great behind the scenes moments of Martha and her guests: Emeril Lagasse, Bill Taibe, Public's Brad Farmerie, America's female grilling expert Elizabeth Karmel and more.  Be sure to check out Martha's blog for more behind the scenes fun before the show airs tonight.  Whether it's delicious smoky BBQ goodness or the irreplaceable experience of mingling among these super chefs, the heat is always worth it.  And if you can't stand the heat, well, you know.
