First crack at BGE Paella

Got this recipe from a fellow Egghead on Twitter. It has it all- Shrimp, mussels, chicken, sausage. Not sure I would do anything different. It was a definite hit with our group.

    @Springram - Not sure yet. I am working on it. That weekend is one of our grandkids birthday so it depends on when they have the party but I hope I can.

    How about you.

    Sorry @C2egger - Don't mean to hi-jack your post.

    How was the "rice crust" from the bottom of the pan (sofrito, sopresetta, damn what was it called??)?  
    Yours is certainly loaded, looks delish!

    The sofrito is the base of tomato and onion that you start with.  The "crust" on the rice is called the socarrat.

    Stupid question. With all the opening of the egg, how do you control the temp?

    @henapple-I follow Naked Whiz's guidance on paella fire building here( http://www.nakedwhiz.com/paella/paella.htm ) and temperature control is pretty easy.  Do play with the bottom vent sometimes but not a whole lot of effort required, even under the influence of adult supervisory beverages.  FWIW-

    @henapple-the only trick with the pan is to be able to shut the dome on the BGE.  As with buying a BGE, I would get the biggest pan that would fit (the handles take a good bit of space so you may need to modify them (bend to a vertical) depending).   TJ Maxx sometimes carries the pans but I would call first.  Otherwise, TNW's on-line site looks promising.  (The pan I use was a gift so I can't give you a personal purchase reference).  A great cook!  Apologize for the partial hi-jack.

    Different brands can have different size handles, so you might get away with a slightly bigger pan.  I recently bought a pan for my BigJoe cooker from Hot Paella and they were kind enough to measure the handle to handle distance for me before I bought.  It wouldn't hurt to email any online vendor to be sure about a particular brand.

    You should never use crack in the same sentence as BGE.
