The grill/barbecue works great because you can evenly distribute the heat source to cover the entire breadth of the pan.
Thanks for that - I'll give it a try (weather permitting!)

Sounds great! If you're interested, below is a recipe I've found that works well. I don't normally have access to fresh clams, so I leave those out. But otherwise this is a good basis for getting the proportions right. Although the recipe says to always leave the grill uncovered, like I said above, I find that covering the grill for a few minutes while the rice is cooking adds a bit of flavor.

One other piece of advice: make sure to not skimp on the oil and don't let the fire burn too hot, or you'll never get that socarrat separated from your new pan.

Good luck!

Thanks - that looks like a great recipe. I think I'll give it a trial run before I try it out on guests!

Interesting that you use your grill, rather than the stove. Just checking for UK/US language differences - do you mean a grill from above, or below?
He means what we call a barbeque. What we call a grill they call a broiler.
