Just our way of saying, Thanks
Looking for new ways to enjoy your grill, how about wokking. It can be a healthy alternative to BBQ too. And, there is more to wok than just Asian meals. Our favorite is shrimp scampi.
16" Wok offers unlimited stir fry possibilities in 18" or larger round and Primo's XL oval kamados. The round bottom wok is 16" in diameter topside and has two riveted handles.
The Set-Up: We recommend using a CGS Spider to hold the Wok. The Spider provides two height options on placing the wok. First is Spider legs down which gets the wok close the fire. Second is Spider leg up which elevates the wok for easier handling. Most folks go Spider legs up. Note: We shy away from using Expanders to hold a wok, as the Expander's top ring can interfere with handling the hot wok. Think safety first on these hot and fast action cooks.
Best Style: Carbon Steel is the premier metal for a wok. Unlike cast iron which absorbs heat, steel passes heat to the food fast. Wokking is a fast hot cook, so we need the heat to move fast. Round bottom Cantonese woks are perfect for kamado grills. We recommend shying away from flat bottom woks as it is harder to stir food vs. a round bottom. Woks are one product we don't mind importing from Asia!
Wok Rack: The Rack holds the wok on a table or counter, so the wok doesn't roll. Can be used with 12", 14" or 16" woks.
Palmyra Bristle Brush: 8" Palmyra Wok Brush is specially designed to tackle the round wok shape. The large bristle area and stubby handle length provide plenty of leverage to ensure your wok gets clean. The Palmyra bristles are perfect for attacking rough surfaces and hard-to-remove foods. Easiest to clean the wok while hot with water. Clean similar to cast iron.
Those wacky spoons and ladles: Many stores promote using metal spoons and ladles with wood handles. We do not recommend them, as they have square edges that can scrap off the wok's protective seasoning during a cook. We offer a wide, round, skimmer spoon to handle food out the wok. Use this spoon and a solid wood spoon for the actual wokking and you are all set for food handling.
Seasoning a Wok: You'll need to season the wok, The process is similar to seasoning cast iron. The wok comes with a protective oil to prevent rusting. You will need to wash this off with warm soapy water prior to seasoning.

Have not used yet but feels very sturdy.
1st wok came dented 2nd/replacement packaged same way and arrived with more dents than tthe 1st wok . CGS says ohh well. So I have 2 dented woks.
We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience regarding your recent wok purchase. We understand how frustrating it can be to receive a wok with a small dent. We are not sure what UPS did, as damage to woks is very rare.
It's unfortunate UPS again mishandled the replacement wok package. We did not proceed further, as we simply followed your request in your last email to us: 'Not asking for a replacement tired messing around with this. Just wanted to let you know for future reference.'
We continually work with our shipping partners to ensure safe and secure delivery of our products. Your feedback will be shared with UPS.
I've been looking for a carbon steel wok for a while, and this one is perfect, and a great value. I bought the 16" for use in my large BGE. I also picked up a spider for it to sit on - makes it easier to access, and lets it sit down closer to the coals (if you put it directly on the grate, the handles will prevent the lid from closing - but a bit lower and you can close the lid over it, if desired). Another awesome product from CGS!
Gave it to my son as a birthday gift and he is very happy with it.
This is a great steel wok for the large BGE. I used it the same day that it came. I seasoned mine with pure flax seed oil in a 450 degree oven (great for cast iron too). There is enough room around the edge for the grill to breath, but tight enough to keep the hair on your arms intact for those hot- -hot stir fries.
