    Outdoor wok-ing

    I'm looking to piece together a good outdoor burner/wok setup and was wondering if anyone here has any insight on such a thing. Any input and or conversation is welcome :-)

    Turkey fryer propane base and a wok base thingy from the Asian market works great.

    It's pretty much impossible to have too many BTU's. Typical home burner is about 8-12k...typical restaurant burner is 30-45k. Wok burner in pro kitchens are 60-120k! Go big on the heat source...that's the only advice I can offer.

    I've got a Bayou Classic high pressure burner with a Lodge Cast Iron wok (flat bottom outside & round inside) that I use outdoors and this set up rocks.

    That looks like a good rig!

    You have any photos of that wok Dave? You've piqued my interest...

    The Lodge one I have? No I don't, never shot pictures of it.

    I think that you might be asking about the street vendor Thai one though? If so I don't have that...

    Sorry, was referring to your lodge with the flat and round bottom.

    I know they exist for sure. My friend's mom (bless her soul) had one in her backyard and she cooked messy and strong smelling dishes on it. She cooked on it one time when I was there. It was a propane wok burner. She also had a cast iron wok.
