New Woks!
« on: March 02, 2015, 12:23:19 PM »
While they are not Weber original woks (with the cool tabs), these carbon steel Woks are pretty sweet.  A buddy of mine gave them to me as he was not using them.  He sandblasted all the old finish off before gifting them to me.  Both are made of carbon steel and have an "old school" feel about them:





These are going to work great with the Gourmet grill system:







Did some seasoning work on the bigger unit today.  Chimney of Royal Oak, nice and hot.  Using Flaxseed oil to season:




Seasoning session #1 complete:



Currently going back through all those WKC wok threads for some ideas for first cook.  My Malaysia favorite, Char Kway Teoh is definitely on the list!

Nice Winz

I was just gifted a small wok as well. I love the original Weber wok, but this will be fun to play with.




I have a small CI wok too. Can't have too many woks.    ;D
Dude, relax your chicken.

@dazzo - do you prefer the steel or CI woks?  Seems like the steel would change temp much faster while the CI would be slow to respond but would retain heat.

Winz, steel vs. CI woks depend on my mood. Steel does get hotter faster, and in my opinion, cook a little hotter. Although, with a chimney full of briquettes, anything will cook hot.

And I also tend to keep beef and pork tools separate from chicken tools, so more woks. And helps justify the arsenal.   ;D

I was seriously looking at plow disk/discadas before I got my hands on the Weber wok.

Winz, that larger wok looks like it would make some incredible stir fry meals.
