Today I am making my version of Paella. It will be made in a custom barbeque called the 'Texas Party Wok'. The Party Wok is made out of recycled plough discs. The middle disc holds charcoal to heat the top disc. The top disc is polished smooth to create a great cooking surface. This Party Wok is a lot of fun. Its uses are only limited by your imagintion. The paella will be a combination of Chicken, Sausage,Shrimp and rice.

  1. 3 pounds Chicken Thighs
  2. 2 pounds Shrimp
  3. 1 pound sausage
  4. 1 cup peas
  5. 2 cups rice
  6. salt & pepper
  7. 3 cups water
  8. 1 pinch saffron
  9. vegetable oil
  10. small onion diced

Fire up the Party Wok. Season the chicken thighs with salt & pepper. Add some oil to the wok and fry the thighs for 15 minutes or until browned. Reserve the thighs. Brown the sausage and reserve. Place some more oil in wok and cook onion for 4 minutes. Add the rice and stir until fragrant. Add the water and saffron, then stir. Arrange reserved chicken and sausage. Place shrimp and peas into mixture. Cover with foil and let steam for aprox 15 minutes.

This is my Cowboy Paella. It is a fun party dish. Who would think that Texas would make Party Woks!
