    Way to go Travis. Are you being flooded out right now. I am so glad the Salado Fest is next week.

    We are at the top of the hill, spring at the end of driveway is bubbling.  Another boomer just rolled thru.  Guess protecting the large from the hail didn't effect the rain.

    Travis,

    I have a Large BGE and a 16 inch diameter wok.  That's about the right size for the Large.  The large has about an 18" diameter cooking surface, so my wok is 2 inches smaller.
    Using that logic, it would seem that since the  XL has a 24 inch diameter, a 22 inch wok might be the right size.  Consider that when you are wokking, you want a very hot fire to achieve Wok Hei , but that is a two edged sword.  The intense heat from the fire comes around the wok and is very hot to your arm while using the spatula.  That's why you want a long spatula.  If you have a smaller diameter wok than the 22 inch, your arms would be traveling through a lot of very hot open space.

    I would probably get the 22 inch. That's one of those things you'd like to test before buying, but you can't.

    P.S.  We have had 2.3" of rain so far in Houston.  Not raining now but much more in the forecast.

    Bump.  Travis hasn't seen my post, I guess, and it's about to fall off the page..

    Travis why didn't you just go to Central Market. We picked up some maple-blueberry sausage for early cook Saturday. They taste like pancakes.

    XL, I've never needed a lid.  I guess if you were steaming something, you'd want a lid.  But, I normally steam things on the stove.

    I just ordered a 20in hand hammered Wok from Mrs Tane. She was super helpful and explained the differences between some of their stuff. If anyone else orders from there, I highly suggest calling and picking their brain. 

    Thanks for the advise, Gary.

    Travis;

    What is the difference between the hand hammered the the regular carbon steal?

    The hand hammered is made in China and is a little deeper. It looks a little different due to the hand hammering but, should work the same. I'm pretty excited about it. I also got a large spatchula.

    Sorry. Done at a fest last year and can't remember. That is just the way I like them.

    I'm bringing it. I have a trailer that I'm going to wheel my cart onto. It's traveled like that before.
