    Heres some shots of my paella
    the initial spread
    i pregrilled or sataued most everything
    Made some seafood yellow saffron rice
    honey butter bbq lobster
    combined everything in a pan and smoked for an hour
    final shots were around valantines
    choose the entry shot of just plain dish
    maybe should have choose the one with the fluff instead but figured the dish looked good enough
    made about 5 pounds
    I ate it all as the boss does not like seafood
    thought i had a winner this month,
    better get workin on my chicken!!!!

    This was my favorite, nice application of smoke to a classic spanish dish. I really like the thinking and the time you put into pulling this off.

    I'm so into paella, your version is certainly not a traditional method, but like bbally said, the effort and thinking, to pull off combining so many different ingredients using grill and smoke procedures earns huge points.

    great dish..........and in spain it is done on a dried grape vine fire so there is some smokie element in the traditional way.

    Rick wanted you to see a picture of my wedding paella. Get two or three weddings a year wanting paella... these bring guests around to see what is cooking.

    hey BBally, how you fit that dish in the smoker?

    To big to smoke, though I probably could smoke the ingredients or some of them. However, I am usually cooking to create the traditional paella.

    These were done on those tripod gas heaters you see them sitting on, the burner rings are individually controlled.

    It allows me to create the socarrat for the dish. Taking care to add the sofritto a little at a time to create that neat toasted rice.
