Hi Everyone
I bought a Paella pan to cook on my large BGE. I got everything ready and then started to fill my BGE and realized I had very little lump. I resorted to cooking on my Weber. No matter how I cooked it I wanted to Thank Hoss's BBQ for the AWESOME recipe and let everyone else know what they are missing if they have not tried it. I noticed it had never been rated in the recipes section, well it is 5*'s! HumpDay Grillin & Chillin !

    Nice pics. I've grown to LOVE a number of paella recipes and have two different size pans depending on the desire to have leftovers or number of us dining...which is typically two. Here is the link to my paella cooks on my blog: Paella Recipies on Big T's Blog Click Here

    Beautiful, G&C. Does that fit on your Egg with those handles?

    dude, that looks awesome. i need to try that.
  • Thanks J.
    The Paella pan handle to handle is 17.5 inches and with raised grid it barely fits with the door shut. I think it clears with about an inch on each side. I wanted as much food as I could get on one cook since the pan is only 2 inches deep.

    That would be Hoss' BBQ.I don't anybody thinkin I could pull that off! :whistle: :)
  • We're loving Paella - 1st Paella cook was about a month ago. I think we've done it about 6 times now.

    Your cook looks great!

    Great Looking Paella!!! Thanks for trying it out. It is always fun to read what people think of some of the dishes I like to cook. I am not used to using recipes in the way that I cook so to take the time to measure everything out then write it up takes time for me yet I do enjoy doing it. It also helps train me in my craft.

    I had to Hoss just couldn't pass that one up!!! Hoss
  • Hi Hoss's BBQ
    It was good stuff! The only changes I made after reading many recipes, we chose yours and added a green bell pepper and a can of diced tomatoes. We also used smaller shrimp, I think they were 35-40 count. Besides that we used your recipe exactly. Thanks for posting it. I wish I knew of a way to search for recipes by forum member names, so I could try some more of your cooks on The BGE.
