Gas and air supply were enhanced. Don't try this at home unless you know what you're doing.
Eileen Yin Fei Lo cuts her cheap wok ring to fit on the cooking grate. Custom fit for each stove and wok rings are cheap.
I know. But this is for free, and besides wok rings i can get here do not fit properly over my stoves. Most important here is to open up gas supply, which i did with a thin drill bit and get rid of the stove lid to obtain a fire "jet". Works really nice.
Whoa, that's awesome. I never thought of that hack. I wonder howw risky it really is. My immediate thought is that the gas orafices, that normally is not exposed to flame but is in this configuration, is made of a rather lightweight aluminum. Maybe it is stainless steel, but it's thin. Unlike true real burner that is thick cast aluminum with steel cap. The burner in the video is different than mine. Seems to me like melting the gas orafices is a possibility. But what an impressive flame that is!
What kind of ventilation do you have at home?
Hehehe luckily I don't even have a gas stove indoors or you will see in the news "5 die in tragic explosion"
It's a big kitchen surrounded by windows, next to a 3000 sq ft garden.
I don't think my home owners insurance would cover any accident they could tie to the modified stove. Which would also violate the terms of my mortgage.
So many constraints.
Guys: this is my house, not a rental appartment.
Nice hack! I don't see a problem with it - I have ring burners on my Southbend and I just take the grate off and put my wok directly on it.
The only problem i find (a good one) is to manage the fire. The wok gets so hot that sometimes it's tricky. Really need to move and shake it and be carefull when deglacing. High flames all over the wok! Beautiful.
on the topic of wok cooking.. I got this book last week
It's amazing. Great ideas, lots of detail on regional provenance, detailed explanation of ingredient preparation and techniques.
