Paella burner
 
Has anyone ever mounted one to their rail? My BBQ grill would not be wide enough to hold a paella pan, but it dawned on me that this dish is a perfect meal aboard, especially if we have guests. A 15" paella pan will feed 4 to 6 easily.

Not sure that wind would make it practical on the rail, but thought I would see if there are any members in Spain that couldn't live without it. :)

When are you heading for the Eastern Caribbean?
Nikki will make her dynamite rum punch and I'll find a few "bugs" for the paella.
I'm hungry already!

Need to get a rig on the rail first. I've located some portable burners, but nothing that seems readily mountable yet. Not crazy about running one in the galley off a propane bottle either, but it would certainly work well. I'm sure I could get the job done with the paella pan on the stove, but the heat would be uneven, which is fairly important.

I make it often using our magma grill, at anchor not under sail however. Although that was on the old grill where I could remove the lid, geez not sure it will fit on the new grill. Just use a Saute pan then, maybe not paella anymore but I doubt anyone will complain.

Try the WOK ring that you use on your home stove, it will support a large pan on the BBQ

Unfortunately, the lid on my BBQ prevents any pan from fitting, ring or not.

Rail mounted burner was unnecessary. A 13" paella pan fit nicely over the largest burner in the galley. This was the maiden voyage out at anchor last night......

Chorizo, shrimp, scallops, mussels, green beans, peas and roasted red peppers. This pic taken with another few mins to go till done. Spanish rice, saffron and paprika just became boat staples!

Edit.... No idea why the pic is upside down. Sry.
