Just got a wok for Mr. Big and need a few tips from the Eggsperts. We've done 'some' stirfrying on the stove in the past but, in truth, we weren't too thrilled with the results.
Been packing on a little too much flesh around the waist and have to do something healthy for a month or two.
Appreciate your help folks, thanks.[p]Carey

  • Sundown,
    To get started just remove the cooking grid and light your BGE. Let it get to a temp of about 425 deg. open the dome and set the wok in the Egg on the fire ring. This is the only time we cook with the dome open as the wok is now the top damper. Let the wok heat a couple of minutes and splas a few drops of water in the wok. If they dance and steam away you are ready to add a table spoon of oil and start stir frying. Note bottom damper all the way open is a hot wok moving the damper half way shut should be a medium wok. You get the picture.
    Here is a stir fry recipe from our recipe of the month. [p]Steve.....on woking in the Big Green Egg![p]We’ve had numerous e-mail inquiries about using a wok in the Big Green Egg
    and for additional stir-fry recipes. So, we sent Steve outside — with

    until he perfected his stir-frying on the Big Green Egg. We think you’ll
    enjoy these recipes![p]Orange Beef Stir-Fry[p]1 lb. beef steak
