Richie experimented with his as new 2 Charity Shop Wok
And created this (here is the recipe in his own words :) )

My recipe for oak smoked chicken
take one cheap charity shop wok


take one dead chicken a load of fresh mint a splurge of chilli oil half a strange garlic type onion thing a slice of ginger and a couple of star anise and half of one of them green lemon things


mix the afore mentioned stuff and wizz it a bit then smear it liberally over afore mentioned dead chicken stuff the load off fresh mint delicateley up the bum of afore mentioned poultry (see above pic)
deftly arrrange oak chips in bottom area of wok and then place wok in centre of barbecue thingee(the barbecue thingee is what suppplies the heat to cook afore mentioned poultry and causes the oak chips to start smokin


place lid on charity shop wok sit back and swig whatever alchoholic beverage you have available :smiley:


nows the time to send the missus in to prepare the salsa thingy and cut up the salad (if you wants the salsa recipe you gotta ask Jeni)



Aha it looks burnt I hear you say but...


serve with huge sheets of bread stuff we got from the asian market and spread the Jeni salsa stufff on top



There you go next time i will be doin Tea smoked duck in the charity shop wok :undecided:

See what I have to cope with!!! :biggthumpup: his second attempt at smokeing was a Pork Shank will try and post that soon. I have to say his "Chicken Thinggy" was awesome!!!

it a thumbs up................................................ ....................................BH51..

One of the best "woks" you can get can be made from a plow disk. Weld the center hole closed and then weld three short pieces of heavy re-bar onto it for legs.

Just make sure you get all the paint off first if its new, but you can get used ones for little or nothing. I made one for a guy here and I welded on a 1" piece of flat steel upright on the edge to give it more "capacity" I also added 3 screw in bases for pipe legs and 2 rebar handles. Pick another one out for a lid. You now have a great way to cook over a fire or propane burner. The Mexican I made it for says they make them a lot where he is from. And boy does the stuff he cooks in it taste good! :food04:

Mosta my 'cooking' entails opening a can of beans. If I feel like putting some extra effort into it, I pour 'em into a pan and heat 'em up.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE good cookin' (like the above). I just like it better when someone else does it. :D
