AS NOT EVERYONE HAS A PLACE WHERE THEY CAN LIGHT A FIRE, I HAVE ADAPTED MY FRIEND ROGER’S PAELLA SO YOU CAN COOK IT ON A BARBECUE GRILL PLATE, BARBECUE GAS BURNER OR ONE OF THOSE LARGE GAS BURNERS YOU CAN BUY AT THE HARDWARE STORE OR ASIAN GROCERS. PREPARING PAELLA OVER A FIRE IS DIFFERENT TO ANY OTHER COOKING TECHNIQUE. HAVING A LEVEL COOKING SURFACE IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE IF THE PAELLERA IS ON AN ANGLE, THE LIQUID WILL GO TO ONE END AND THE RICE AT THE OTHER END WILL NOT COOK. SOME PEOPLE HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO GET OUT THE SPIRIT LEVEL — NOT A SILLY IDEA IF YOU HAVE ONE! REMEMBER, YOU NEED TO CONCENTRATE ON THE COOKING AND NOT BE DISTRACTED.
