Re: Paella recipes

Outstanding christian....... thanks.

I suppose we should also mention that a paella pan requires somewhat even heat along a big flat bottom. On a BBQ or woodfire is pretty cool, but I haven't tried one like that yet. It may be neat to try on a beach sometime, but its a lot of ingredients to bring to shore.

A 12 person pan is approx 20" across the bottom and a 20 person pan must be well over 2 feet!! Beautiful, but perhaps impractical aboard.

My little 13" pan works great on the boat galley stove. I was thinking of trying to fashion a larger burner for the rail, but it would be tough. For my bigger pans at home, I have a propane paella burner, which has concentric flame rings to heat the larger bases. I think my burner will hold up to 22". At home, I put it on the stove top and run the propane hose across the counter. Probably a code violation of some kind.
