  • 3ea lobsters (split)
  • 4 ears of corn (shucked cut in 1/3rds)
  • 1lb baby potatoes

  • 1 head garlic (peeled and sliced)

  • 1/2lb butter
  • 3/4 cup Winsor House Spice Blend (or Old Bay)
  • 1/2 cup parsley (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup rice bran oil (or other high heat oil)
  • 1 bottle of Champagne (you can sub water here)
  • Salt 
  • Lemon wedges 
  • 1 Food-grade burlap sack


  1. Soak your burlap bag in water for at least 1 hour
  2. Start the fire in your Solo Stove and place the Cast Iron Wok and stand on top, heating until the wok is extremely hot.
  3. In a large metal mixing bowl place the lobsters, oysters, clams, corn, onion, sausage, garlic, potatoes, and cut lemons.
  4. Toss lightly with the oil, 1/2 cup Winsor spice blend, and a little salt until just coated.
  5. Place everything into the wet burlap bag.
  6. Place the entire bag in the wok and cook for about 10-15 minutes, flip and cook for another 10-15 minutes. Cook time will vary depending on the heat of your fire (could take more time, could take less time).
  7. Periodically open the bag and peek inside to see if the shellfish is starting to open, the lobsters are turning red,  and everything else is hot and cooking along.
  8. Once everything is fully cooked, remove the bag and place half of the butter on the wok.
  9. Once the butter starts to brown and everything is fully cooked, empty the contents of the bag into the wok and stir with a wooden spoon.
  10. Pour 1 - 1 1/2 cups of Champagne over the top.
  11. Once the wine is mostly evaporated, grab the wok (using oven mitts please) and pour the entire contents back into the large metal mixing bowl.
  12. Toss with the remaining butter, salt, chopped parsley and 1/4 cup Winsor spice and mix well.
  13. Once the butter is melted and everything is coated nicely, pour everything onto a big serving platter or newspaper lined table and enjoy with lemon wedges!
