Cooking paella over an open fire is a great way and a surprising simple way to create your masterpiece. These forged wrought iron open fire tripods simply sit within on the ground and the fire is built around it. The 40cm Tripod can be used with pans from 66cm through to about 65cm diameter.

They are incredibly sturdy and raise the pan about 30cm off the ground. They support a wide range of pan sizes, both smaller and larger than the tripod itself.

They are also can be used to stand inside many round garden firepits

Apart from the usual safety precautions,  other tips for cooking you paella over an open fire are:

  • Ensure the wood used is not tainted by paint or creosote 
  • Use small bits of wood that will burn down quickly - Traditionally Orange branches are used, but are a bit difficult to find in the UK!
  • Have enough space around the tripod in order that you can rake out the embers (especially when the paella is very nearly cooked)
  • Start with a medium fire when  cooking your meat or fish. Build up the fire when the stock is in  (the flames can be licking around the side of the pan). When the rice is starting to show through, let the fire die down or rake out to only embers showing.
  • Use a long handle skimmer spoon
