My first stir fry in wok

Seasoned my wokshop 16" carbon steel wok and decided this was the weekend to give it a run. I have to say the spider is a must for using the wok and the ability to flip it over and get closer to the fire as it goes down is very nice.

I have to say, it was relatively easy to do but definitely took some preparation and getting all things staged and ready to go. I made some minor mistakes that I know I can avoid next time, a little too much oil, etc.

I did make some fried rice with a small bag of frozen veggies that turned out excellent, all in all the family said it was delicious, and I have to admit it was pretty good. Only gripe is some of the "seasoning" came off the wok as I was stirring everything with the metal spatchula.

Here are some pictures, so you can see it did happen. :-)

    I bought a "pow" wok, with a single long metal handle, so I couldn't flip the spider over to get it even closer to the coals like you have.
    However, since I lost the hair on my right arm anyway from the intense heat, I'll just be happy with that!  
    Live fast, die young, and leave a well-marbled corpse.
