A couple of years ago I made a choofer from a old 9kg gas bottle and I had the bottom third of the bottle left over. SWMBO suggested that it would make a good wok, so I cleaned up the inside with a bit of wet and dry, welded on a couple of basic handles and it was a done deal. On the first use everything stuck to it and I was a little disappointed. On the second use it was better and the third, better again. After a dozen uses it was as good as a teflon pan. It's now had hundreds of uses and its like a seasoned politition, nothing sticks to it!!
I found a lid at a garage sale for a dollar. Fits it like a glove.
It not only gets used for camping, but we use it a couple of times a week on the barbie wok burner.
I'm not sure whether to use the attachment or imageshack for posting photos, but I'll try the latter.

Bloody ripper mate. First one that I have seen.

Looks very neat with the handles and polished up.

Looks like cocia has snared you in good and proper.

Was that your idea or did you copy from another ?

Ps. Show us your choofer  Smiley

No, I've never seen one before. Have to give credit to the wife for the idea.
Anyway here's the choofer.

Thanks for the comments. Yeh Dave, I think I'll have to do just that. When I cook with beads the height of the CO isn't a big deal as it's easy to add or subtract beads. With coals I have found it's not so simple and a little extra adjustment wouldn't go astray.
That choofer looks like it's done a few dinners.
