I've cooked ok with a (heavy flat bottomed cast iron) wok for years on my electric range and yearned for a gas source, then cooked a bit better with round bottom woks and the "ringstand" on some friends 12,000 BTU stove/range top burners too, then saw this on Amazon resembling the wok burner style I'd seen often in use at around Thailand, and bought it...
Well, the unit arrived quickly, it quickly bolted solidly together, and I found that it's built Rock Steady; a 200# person could sit supported on it's 3 sturdy legs and superwide feet and not wobble it. It comes with a safety and recipe video as well.
The heat output ranges from mild to tremendous at 55,000 + BTU's. After firing it up and cooking many meals in one fourth the time as before, I can now say this IS just like many of the sturdy roadside stand woks used in Thailand on a daily basis...read as this as: "The really right stuff for great wok cookery!"
My unit arrived with some incidental damage suffered in shipping, and the company quickly sent replacement parts and more, making me a very happy customer.
Only "problem" is... I've "mothballed" my faithful flat bottomed wok to the closet, as a round bottomed 16" carbon steel wok and the Big Kahuna burner have taken it's place!
I've cooked on it for over a year. I have had fun, and no problems with rust or repairs. I've even turned it's reversible top from its concave "wok" side" to it's flat "range or pot" side, and rapidly heated a 15" cast iron skillet and a griddle pan, when company comes over, to not smoke up my kitchen. I keep it stored inside as Florida's salt air and rains would do a number on it.Read more ›
First the caution - this burner can produce a -lot- of heat, way more than you probably need for most wok cooking (unless you're using a really giant wok like a 22" or something). I use a 14" cast iron wok, and found that even on a moderate burner setting I could ignite a tablespoon of hot oil. My first time out with this burner, I overheated my wok and actually burned the seasoning right off it. So if you're using this with a wok (as opposed to a turkey fryer or something that truly needs a huge amount of heat), be conservative with your settings until you really have a feel for what you need. I suggest cooking some leftover vegtables or other "throwaway" items once or twice to get the hang of it.
Now, the complaint. I find that if you want to use a relatively low amount of heat relative to what the Big Kahuna can deliver, it's hard to get it precisely set where you want it. At the lower settings, the valve tends to "creep" open a little once you set it. So, you can dial in a low setting, but a few seconds after you let go of the valve it will open up to a slightly higher setting. Now, this may just be my unit, and it may be a break-in issue that will go away over time. But it necessitates extra caution, and a little more work than I think should be necessary to get it set up to where you want it. If it weren't for this I'd give this product 5 stars. With this glitch, it's a solid 4 and I'd still recommend it for anyone wanting a truly powerful outdoor burner.Read more ›

Sadly, my BIG KAHUNA was stolen from my home before I used it, so I am mainly basing my review on its build quality.
It was well designed and firmly constructed. Read more

I admit: I took all of the five star reviews here with a grain of salt. However, I also thought: "Worst case, I lose $60".
