Topic: Wokking Help (6 msgs / 85 lines)
1) From: Jason Brooks
All ya'll who've wok roasted, I need your sage advice.
Tonight, I did my second wok roast.  My first was some time ago.  
Roasted about 1/4# Mexico Oaxaca Organic - Finco El Olivio to city+.  I 
roasted it over the gas sidburner of my grill.  The problem I had was 
scorching, which is leading me to believe the wok is too thin.  What's 
the thickness of your wok/skillet used for roasting?  Anyone using cast 
iron?  I also had the idea that cast iron might work - it's thick (=no 
hot spots) and holds heat well.  But what about tempering, et al?  
Better use one dedicated for coffee instead of ruining the bacon/sausage?

14 gauge (or heavier) plain carbon steel wok. While I haven't used a cast
iron pan/pot for roasting I suspect it'd be less responsive to heat changes
holding heat too well.
FWIW I wouldn't worry about coffee oils hurting the flavor of bacon, could
even be quite good. But don't think I'd go for roasting coffee in bacon fat!

Is that what people are referring to when the talk about using a Cajun Pot?

Pecan Jim is the expert in this area. I seem to recall him in the past
saying that the wok should be the thickness of a nickel.
