I love paella, its a very fun dish to do live fire.

Here's one of mine, not quite so pretty!  The wife isn't keen on shellfish so I keep to chicken and chorizo, and veg of course.  It gets its golden hue from being smoked towards the end with the lid on with some hickory on the fire.  Gets a nice crust, too!

Edit: it would help to include the picture!!!

Mmmmmmm MMM. That looks great. They have paella stands at some of the markets around here, huge, huge paella pans full of the stuff. Can't say it looks better that what you posted Al :-)

My father-in-law does an excellent paella, with the exception of the shrimp. They're head-on, which I just can't stand, and they're way, WAYY too salty. Give me some paella with only chorizo and squid, where the chorizo and some of the rice have stuck to the bottom of the pan and gotten nice and crispy, and I'll give you free beer.

BTW at least living in Europe I can get real chorizo, the rock-hard stuff from spain, and not that sausage-y stuff you guys have out there.  8)

Living in Tampa, I can go to any grocery store and find three or four different kinds of chorizo, some with Spanish only labels.  I like the soft stuff that you have to squeeze out of the casing.

Went to Jaleo's in the new Cosmopolitan Casino/Hotel in Vegas and took this pic of the paella station.  He was making Paella Valencia, they only make Paella once a night. I didn't have any, I just had tapas and a clara (beer mixed with lemonade with some rosemary).  We've made it as a big family Christmas Eve dish before, getting the crust on the bottom just right is what sends it over the top.

That looks really good nic.

I don't have a pan and haven't tried an authentic recipe yet but would love to give it a shot. Maybe in the fall when the weather cools down a bit. I'd like to use clams and shrimp.
