AOrdered the 18" version from southwestdisk.com and the burner from Amazon.  Of course they arrived as I was getting ready to move so hadn't had a chance to use it until last weekend.  Looking forward to using it out on trips one of these days.

These Tembo Tusks are $275!!  Why not just put a small wok on a Coleman Bottle Top Propane Stove or some other heat source? A lot cheaper.

These look promising and more versatile for taking in a pop-up camper. https://www.volcanogrills.com/

Can use wood, charcoal, propane fuels, and wok, Dutch oven, grill or griddle. Don’t have one but am considering one.

I got one of the Cobb grills but found it oversold what one can do with 8 charcoal briquettes plus it was difficult to clean when camping. In fairness, after having to borrow a grill to complete cooking chicken dinner the first time, I have not invested much time in trying to “master” its use.

This^^^^

With the price of those trendy overland products I'd try the tried and true budget version first.

 

I have one of those Coleman single burners and a two burner stove. Never needed more but I'm usually only cooking for 1-4 at the most. With 4 being few and far between. I recently discovered Trangia alcohol stoves and they are quite addicting. On my recent trip to Death Valley the wind was blowing hard and with the minimal windbreak of a truck tire I heated precooked burgers on the Trangia and had a great lunch without having to break out my whole camp kitchen set up.

There are indeed many ways to cook and many choices for stoves, etc. I'm not to sure I would trust myself with a wok with boiling hot oil atop that Coleman burner, especially since wok cooking usually involves a lot of action with a wok spatula, stirring everything and flipping ingredients in the hot oil. Seems like a disaster waiting to happen but to each his own. That's what I like about the Southwest setup, pictured above on its tripod burner. It is sturdy, and you can really "work it" with a proper spatula. And, in addition, the tripod can be setup away from the picnic table where a camp chef can flail about with impunity. YMMV

Awesome! I love my wok & use it almost every day. 1st off, season it.
Now for recipes, have a look at the recipes in these links, I'm sure you'll find something you & your family will like.
You're not limited to cooking just Asian food in your wok, I've made fish & chips, beef stroganoff, various soups, pastas and even doughnuts. The wok & stir-frying techniques are so versatile, you can easily adapt many recipes to the wok. Just keep it seasoned & oiled, the woks I've used tend to rust easily if you don't.

Regards,
Dex
