      Pro tip.

      If you use the dragon fan to supercharge your set up and you are done or you need the fan off, move it away. Without the fan running with fresh cooler air you will melt the fan. One dragon fan suffered melting fate to learn this.

        Last trip to SF I visited the Wok Shop right there in Chinatown. WHAT a playground. I have been doing a bit of woking on my charcoal chimney and it is MUCH better than anything I ever did indoors. I will be writing about what I have learned on the free part of the website and in my next book. Thanks for the good info here everyone!

          This is new to me, but sounds interesting. Can you provide a link to see what's posted. Still not good at navigating the site.

          The chimney alone is okay, but a dragon fan blown chimney or rig is even better. Especially if cooking for a crowd because there is zero wait between batches of food etc.

        The vortex works excellent as well

          The vortex is like a chimney so may need forced air assist as well. I bolted my master touch grate with the hole in it to the dragon chimney so I can’t easily rest a wok in the kettle at the moment. (It would have to rest at least an inch above the vortex so the fire has exhaust room)

        me thinks FireMan was named WokMan in a previous life.......

        make that wok sing!

          Reaches 900F in a minute. Recovery between batches is seconds.

          Focuses most of the heat on the center 3-4 inches of the wok.

          Only trouble is keeping up with it.

                I use a medium vortex in my kettle. I have a wire wok ring fixed to an old grate that sits above the vortex. My 16 inch CS pow wok I bought from The Wok Shop, gets plenty hot. I'll measure the temp. The wok sits a couple inches from the top of the vortex, as close as possible while still allowing air flow through the cone. I'll wager at least 800.

                  16”, that’s a whopper. Need some pics.

                  I also have a 16”. Don’t use it much because it’s too heavy for me to toss things with and my fire is so hot sometimes I have to hold the wok away to be able to keep up.

                  16” is nice sometimes though.

                  Great thread! I've only used a wok inside, which goes against the grain of my very being. I see MCS in my near future!

                    Wok shop is fantastic. I wouldn’t think of ordering from somewhere else now.

                  With meathead discussing wok on a charcoal chimney, I figured this thread deserved a bump. Cool (actually way hotter than a standard chimney) ideas here.

                    Damn it P - if you hadn't bumped it, I never would have seen it and now NEED to go wok shopping. And shopping for all the other stuff needed to make it work outdoors. I HATE it when this happens. 😁

                    At least good woks are cheap. It’s all the other stuff.

                Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
