First time with the wok

Finally got around to seasoning the new wok tonight. Then I put some chicken, fresh veggies and a clear sauce over some rice. It was really tasty! The dome temp was about 600 but I pretty much left the lid open when the food was in there. It was fast!! It took about 8 minutes total!! I had everything prepped and ready to go. I forgot to snap a pic of the bowl so this is all that I have.
Have a great night everyone.

    Wokking and Paella still things I want to get setup for. Trying to decide which one first...

    Looks really good.

    Good job. Are you open for a suggestion or two? From my own eggperience I have found a stable dome temperature of 400 works better for me and then to keep the fire from becoming a raging inferno during the open dome wok cook I always close my bottom vent entirely. You will have plenty of direct heat plus time for most any wok cook on the egg.

    I bought me one of those advertised on tv 'authentic hand hammered wok' about 20'ish years ago and I love it. Unfortunately, since I purchased a ceramic top stove, I no longer use it. What would I need to purchase to be able to successfully use it on my large bge?

    Nice! I love it when the colors of a dish are so vibrant.

    Nice job on the wok!

    @Hibby - you just need something to set the wok on. A spider or Woo3 works great:

    Or you can place a simple wok ring on your cooking grid. You can find a couple varieties here:

    I am always open to suggestions RRP!  Good call on the closed bottom vent.  I have a friend bringing me a welding sleeve this weekend because it got so hot on my arm.  I could use a longer wooden spatula too. 
    Hibby, I just used the Woo2 from CGS.  I also use the lump reducing ring but that is not necessary.

    Thanks everyone for the comments.  I still love my egg like the day that I got it!
