the wife got them at sur la tab. I assume the rice is fine but not sure if the covering on the handles will be ok. She thinks the pan is the house brand.

    Not sure of the covering on the handle. Wrap up with HDAF and see whar happens.

    Looks like mine did when I first got it. You'll be fine.
  • Off subject, but thank you for the homemade butter instructions. It made the cornbread so good.

    you're welcome. fresh real buttermilk and the fresh butter really do make it better.

    there ya go, giving away all my closely guarded family secrets.

    i have a much simpler recipe for butter that i hesitate to give out, because it is always a hit at the table when i tell them it is homemade. i use the microwave, but my grandmother used a small pot.

    1.) melt a stick or two of butter slowly over gentle heat

    2.) pour into mold(s) shaped like a stick of butter

    3.) refrigerate til cold and solid

  • Sure, why not? Bomba rice is the perfect rice for paella and a paellera is the ideal pan. Good luck!

    That is exactly what I have. There is no need to wrap the handles.
    I always start my paella on the stove-top and then transfer it to the BGE right before I add the stock.

    Remember that paella is a concept and not a single recipe. I often only make a meat paella with Chicken, Pork and Chorizo. It depends upon what I have.
    Sometimes I add Artichoke Hearts. I always add frozen peas at the end and I start with Flame Roasted Red Peppers.
    I char the peppers on stove and then place in a brown paper bag for at least 15 minutes.

    Thanks, TNW, for the work you put into the paella section of your web site. After going over it several times, I'm ready to tackle this project.
