If I had your skills and knowledge of Asian cooking I'd be cooking on this thing like crazy.

Tane has suggested a 32,000 BTU portable wok burner that they carry, but that looks very good too.
I never noticed the cooker on but I make occasional trips over to S.F. Chinatown to shop in person so I haven't looked too closely at their website.

I tried one wok cook on my Weber Summit side burner (only 12,000 BTUs) and it fell way short of the heat I needed.

Thanks again for the inspiration on the cooker Richard!
