wokking on the egg

Got a carbon steel wok for christmas from the Wok Shop and it has been awesome so far. Seasoned it according to the instructions and the first cook was stir fry with rice noodles. Wasn't a great as I was expecting and I did have a little sticking. Put another couple coats of seasoning on it and did chicken fried rice last night on it. It was amazing. No sticking, great flavor and so much fun. I think it will be a sunday night staple in my house because today's lunch was even better.

I know i know, pics or it didnt happen. Well its hard to wok and picutre at the same time and it was gone before i could take any inside.

One question thought... i have welding gloves, but its still too hot to carry in doors when Im done and ready to serve. Any suggestions?

    What I'd do is I would bring a serving bowl and dump the finished product into it. The main reason I would not bring the wok into the house is god forbid one of my children touched the wok. The secondary reason, if the wok is still hot technicality it would be still cooking the food.
  • Plate outside.  Throw some water in the hot wok and clean then set aside to cool.  We do that for out CI and woks.

    I got a Wok too from them, likely the same carbon steel it.  Now well seasoned and works like a champ.  I have an old lid from a steel milk jug (the cap is 5" diameter with a flat top) and I put the wok on that outside to cool off.  Dump the food into a bowl and bring it in...
