Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Best wok for XL? (let's try this again...)

So my earlier post is a jumbled mess, thought I try once more, with conviction.

I have an XL egg and Woo2 and am looking for a good wok to add to the collection. Any recommendations for that set up?

Cheers -

  • I, too, have the 19" wok from CGS. It's big, but if you have a place to store it I'd recommend it.

    Yeah, I have a large egg and have 16". It seems big. I would think the 16" in the XL would be a good size so that is what I recommended. I cant imagine filling the 19" up, but then again I usually only break out the wok for my wife and I.

    Okay, 19" from CGS looks great. Did you guys get the accessory pack? If so, would you recommend it? If not, did you get other accessories (spatula, whisk, etc)?

    Thanks again to everyone for the recs -

  • Didn't get the accessories. I've got utensils that work just fine while cooking. When it goes inside for serving I set the wok on a stoneware bowl. Works just fine. I did get several little squeeze bottles from Wal-Mart to put all the oils/sauces in.

    I have the 16" from CGS. It is pretty big but I sometimes wish I'd bought the 19" for larger cooks and to reduce the chance of overloading the wok (which cools the wok down). If you have the space to store the big one I'd recommend that one.

    I got the accessories but I only use the lid and wok ring. I misplaced the brush and didn't need the spoons and prefer a traditional metal chuan (spoon/spatula) even with the risk of scratching off seasoning.

    I have the 16" Hammered Carbon Steel Wok from the WokShop in CA and a Spider from the ceramic grill store. Works like a champ
