Of course they do, Alan.woks do definately come into their own when cooking outside on a real fire .
you can use them but they dont really work unless buried in a nice red ash fire .
then they do beat every other type of cooking .
i like using an oven or pressure cooker .
but when in the right place a fire and a wok work great. ..
I know who grassed me up as well........... I was really not having a good day (excuse no 34 from the I-Spy book of pathetic excuses) and knowing that the pee was going to be mercilessly taken, really should not have said "oh by the way, bring yer own food......"LOL Oh dear, David..... your reputation as a chef has already preceded you I am afraid.
