If your cooker can fit the 18" I'd say go with it! For the amount of work & time to cook a paella, I figure I want as much as I can cook even though I'm typically only cooking for two. I had a 13.5" pan that I gave to my bro-in-law because it didn't hold enough for me. I have an 18" SS pan from that I'm not all that crazy about (it warped a bit on me on my last cook & personally I find it a pain keeping it shiny. I'm planning on buying a pata negra pan soon. I was drooling over them over at the hotpaella retail store. They're seriously heavy duty. I might be able to fit a 20" pan on my cooker. is another site to check out. Seems like a few of the vendors sell the same brands of pans (Garcima or Paderno) so it is worth doing some price comparisons. The same vendors also appear to sell on

Make sure you measure the cook area and the pan for sale.

I could help being the way I am, but the problem is...there is nobody else willing to do it.

Default Campground Paella

The guys and I do a 4 day camping trip in the Adirondacks every year. This year one decided to make Paelle on the Weber. Check out the video from last year. It starts at the 1:45 mark

sausage, scallops, shrimp, grouper, chicken, clams, mussels, home made sofrito

check out the other meals and the shrimp the size of your hand!

all this food is for just 6 people and we do eat well. I also brew about 10 gallons of beer to go along with the many cases of store bought stuff we bring
Weber Performer, Smokey Joe, home brewery- "smoke em if ya got em"

I got my 16" from Amazon:

Ground the rivets out and remounted the handles so it would fit on my LBGE.

Made my first attempt following the Naked Whiz's Paella Primer and it turned out great!
