Turkey fryer used for wok?

Wendy Leonard | Mar 7, 200203:03 PM     5

I am thinking of getting a turkey fryer after the discussion on this board a couple of weeks ago. I was wondering, has anyone ever used one as a wok cooker? A first-class restaurant wok stove is about 140,000 BTU, the same as the turkey fryers. Is there any reason why they wouldn't work great for wok cooking? If you got one with a ring to hold the stock pot seems as though that would hold a wok as well. Turkey fryers cost about $100 and wok cookers cost several thousand--not to mention having to retrofit the kitchen to handle that many BTU and voiding one's homeowners insurance!
