I bought one of these charcoal stoves


And now I'm trying to figure out what I want to put it on to

1) not burn the porch

2) raise it up higher

I found cinderblocks 8x8x16" I can double up and the height of the stove is another 11". Is 27" high enough for wok cooking?

It's usually lower than a normal stove right?


What height do y'all cook at?

Counter height is 36 inches. Table height is 30. Somewhere in the 32-33 inch height would be my preference for wok cooking. But that's not my reality very often.

Good enough for something I haphazardly threw together.

I'm not going to light this thing up for every stir fry; I have the propane burner for that. But if I need a longer burn like for a smoke or a braise, it's totally worth it. Also if I need to sear something, this gets intense heat using much less coal than lighting up my kettle grill.
