Second look at it and it was too big for camp stir fry :D I'll keep my eyes open for the small version, or something that I can modify into a wok holder.

Hey Oops,
I have been a chef for many years, now retired, and I find woks great. Below is a link where I found a stainless steel 7" wok and a 10" hand hammered iron wok(preffered).
I am not sure if an alcohol stove has the temperature(lightning hot!) or burn time that you need to get the effect of traditional stir fry. You said that you had used one in the past though. I'm not sure what you will be using it for. Lond distance hiking? Weekend backpacking. Their not very light. :o

Hope it helps.

I have a couple of coleman catylitic heater that I'm going to disect to see how they work :D

They have a snuffer lid/cap that has a handle attached and looks like the handle can be bent to form a wok handle. The snuffer looks like it could be made into a wok. I'll try to get a photo of it and post. Oops, you might already have one in your collection. If you want the lid I'll send it on out with your mystery tool stove.
