While I do use the wok for wokking, it is also a useful dual purpose pan. For example, fill it with water to boil pasta and you don't need to carry a large pot.

I'm hoping to avoid that by doing most oy cooking outside and if inside being careful.

I do a fair bit of deep fried turkeys and no use canola oil which handles the required temps just fine. I also filter the oil through cheesecloth and store it in the freezer getting me 3 or 4 uses out of it. Deep fried turkey is just so good, I usually do two for family gatherings as with less than 60 minutes cook time it is easy to do.

Oh, and a huge batch of sweet potato fries that takes but a minute or so are a nice follow up.

I take this stuff on weekend camping trips but would never take it on a long trip.

I need to get out more often as I've never heard of a flat bottom wok. Wouldn't that be a frying pan?

its still a wok, just the center of the bottom is flat, these are generally used with electric stoves.

Using the burner from our turkey fryer , a metal ring I fabricated , and a standard round bottom wok , we are able to do stir fry outdoors
I also built a stand with slide rails and wind shields so I can use our turkey fryer burner for cooking Booya
A 30 gallon booya pot sits on top of the stand and is at just the right height so I can stir the booya with a clean canoe paddle .

This thread made me concerned about the pot size limits for the older style two burner (above counter style) that is in my 2018 so I checked the manual. 10 inch is the limit for my stove, and there's a caveat that if you are using a griddle on one burner, don't use the other burner at the same time.

Yes, these rv stoves are not as robust as our residential stoves. Serious cooking should be done outside....

The largest pot an fry pan we have in our trailer is 10" diameter and does not get hordes of use as for many foods is just too big. Why would we need larger unless we are cooking for a large group, and then I too would be doing my cooking outdoors. Even our 10" Magma pot would cook food for many though.

I had to do the liquid clean out that was addressed in the video. In fact, my situation was possibly the reason that this video was posted. It was very easy to do and worked like a charm.

Doing the water clean out also helped my find the origin of a screw I'd previously found loose on the floor in my trailer.
