Wok Talk - Hitting a Comfort Zone

First Image
This blog will cover some of the initial discoveries I’ve made dipping my toes into wokking waters. I have reached an initial comfort level far quicker than I ever expected and I have been extremely happy with every wok cook I’ve done so far. Now before you think I feel like I am some sort of expert, that is far from the truth. I am just sharing what I have learned so far and I am well aware I still have LOTS to learn. Since it is more general knowledge than Big Green Egg specific, I will not include it in my series of Big Green Egg blogs. There will be a small amount of BGE specific info, but most of this will apply to wokking on a grill. Read More...

Big Green Egg - Pt 17 - Stir Frying on the BGE

First Image
This blog entry does have some Big Green Egg specific information, but it also has lots of information that applies to wok cooking or wok cooking on a grill. One surprise about my new Big Green Egg has been the versatility of it. I am now not just grilling and smoking on it, Ive been baking on it and now as of yesterday Stir-Frying. If you told me back in August I’d be baking on the new Big Green Egg, I might have said: “OK why not, I baked a couple things on my gas grill too.” If you had said I’d be stir-frying I would have laughed at you. I don’t stir-fry on anything, never had and I figured I never will.. But it turns out the Big Green Egg excels in wok cooking due to the high heat it can bring to the table. This blog will be about my first attempt at stir frying and what I have learned. I will divide this entry into two parts. The first will cover the big picture.items like why you would want to stir-fry on the Egg, what you need to get, and getting started. The second entry will talk about my first wok cook. Also please note that I am not suddenly declaring myself an expert on using the wok on the Egg. I am just trying to pass along what I have picked up so far, which will hopefully help some other folks who are thinking about trying this too. Read More...
