  1. I've seen it done before, and it didn't look to different from making paella the conventional way. I'm sure you just have to watch your heat levels.

    1. I tired once, but the rice kernels kept falling through the grates......

      1. Paella on a gas grill is easy. Just pump up the heat and let her rip. The most difficult part of using a grill is that most covers get in the way.

        1. Any reason to do it on the gas grill? To get the benefit of cooking on a grill I might want to toss some wood in the grill to get a hint of wood smoke.

          1. Did is last month. I even grilled most of the ingredients on the grill and added one at a time to the rice mix on the pan also heating on the grill. Very good.

            1. Paella is traditionally made on an open fire or gas flame.

              1. I have made it on a charcoal grill - not a problem. With that said, didn't add anything to the flavor.

                The key to Paella, I have learned, is the Paella pan. But I am sure everyone else already knew that.
