I have recently started using my grill as a way to cook in my wok. I have never had much success with it over the flame from a gas stove and there is absolutely no hope with an electric. using a chimney starter, i pour out the coal and arange them with a hole in the center in a kind of circle. then i put the wok in the center and it is raging hot in no time and doesn't lose much heat after the food is put in it. I know i'm not the first to do this but it felt magical when i did. Anyone else have some ideas other than the standard grilling meat/veggies on the grate?
