First Time Wok'ing

New to the BGE but slowly learning.  Wife got me a Wok for our anniversary recently.  I got the Spider set-up and seasoned the Wok today and then tried out my first stir fry.  Turned out nicely and look forward to more.  Appreciate any tips/recipes others have to share.

    Nice lookin looking wok event right there.  I usually will stir fry 2-3 times a month. 

    If you wanting to learn the ways of the wok do search for @Village Idiot   He has some pretty stout cooks

    Looks delicious! I'm a big fan of woking on my large egg. In case some other eggers are wanting to join in - here's my unsolicited advice..

    The cheapest route is to buy a flat bottom wok. 

    The second cheapest is to buy a traditional wok and using 2 fire bricks so your wok can rest on them while the bricks are laying flat on your grate.

    The BEST way is to buy a spider from CGS. Then with the spider legs down your wok will be fine and give you more time to cook your meal.  But if you want to cook your meal fast put your spider in with legs up so your wok will be closer to the coals.

    And last but not least what works for me is to get my egg to 350 dome temp with my wok in place and then close my bottom vent. Then with my dome open the fire will be fine and never be a raging inferno.

    Stir fry is a ton of fun. Nice work. I posted this a couple of years ago. You might get something useful from it.

    Large BGE & Mini Max for the wok. A few old camp Dutch ovens and a wood fired oven. LSG 24” cabinet offset smoker. There are a few paella pans and a Patagonia cross in the barn.

    @RRP Those were some very useful tips.  I've been planning to finally use the CGS wok setup I purchased like 8 years ago, so this is all helpful.
    It's "Smokin Gal", not "Smoking Al".
