Dirrty-Discada

Post by Dirtytires » February 20th, 2018, 12:19 am

Figured it was time for me to put together a quick discada. Hardest part was finding a disk, in any condition, without paying a fortune for shipping. I ended up driving over an hour to a tractor dealership and purchased a new 20 inch disk. First task was to weld up the mounting hole.

I did a little different on my spoon rest as I wanted a more compact disk. I came square off of the two sides then cut a semi circle out of 10 g plate ( I think) about 3 inches wide. Finished it off with 1inch strap and put on a few simple but sturdy handles out of 0.5 inch rod. It works great to keep food warm on the lip, is easier to carry when full of food and perfectly holds my favorite wood spoon.

Added a little high temp paint to the bottom and seasoned the cooking surface by oiling and heating on a gas grill. Same process I use on cast iron.

Finally, time to put it to use. Made a batch of shreded chicken chili with the chicken I smoked the day before. One thing you can’t see is the wire rack I fabbed up to hold it on the burner and also doubles as a trivet should I want to put the whole wok on a table to serve from.

Nice, about how thick is the material you welded around the sides?

Very cool! I really like the spoon rest idea. The others I've made and other people have made have diving boards, which sure works but your idea is nice too.

The strap is 0.125 x 1. It’s plenty heavy to support the handles and the 1 inch adds a nice bit of capacity for big batches of chili and such.

I use at home on the outdoor kitchen but also need to be portable as we camp a lot and it does group cooking nicely. I chose the rounded spoon rest as it is more compact and allows me to use all 3 burners on my camp stove without hanging over where someone might knock it off. (We might have an adult beverage or 3 while we cook).It did take a fairly big piece of sheet till you figure in the curve however.
