other than pleasure of doing it, is there any benefit to cooking with a wok on the egg over the stovetop? Once you get a handle on temp control and how to use it, is there any difference?[p]

    hounddog,[p]Can't help you but I had wondered bout the same thing for quite a while.[p]Jethro
  • hounddog,[p]I haven't actually done it either, but I'll take a shot at it. Wok cooking is generally done at very high temperatures. I would guess that, unless you had a professional grade stove, you can't get the heat up as high as you can on the Egg. Wether that makes a difference or not I don't know. Guess I'll have to dig the woks out of the attic and try....[p]Just a WAG - grin![p]Kelly Keefe

  • hounddog,[p]I wokked out at the Eggfest last year and I still occasionally wok. The wok I use fits so snuggle on the fire ring that there is very little temp change. I'm guessing that the temp is somewhere between 500 º and 550 º. I think that's hotter than what I can get on the inside stove. Anyway it works. Did you see Alton Brown this week - he woks squid. I'll have to try that one.

    hounddog,[p]I'll use the wok on the Egg over the stove top anytime. Much higher heat on the Egg, which is a good thing for stir fry. Chicken and shrimp with veggies is my favorite to date.[p]Puj
