How big is your disk?

Post by Dirtytires » April 3rd, 2019, 10:58 pm

I have a 20 inch plow disk wok and run it on a built in burner on my outdoor kitchen. It works great for the family but I am finding that some bigger groups I’m cooking for need more space. I would like to go a little bigger but don’t want to have to buy and set-up a special burner each time I cook.

So, my question is how big is your disk and what do you fire it with?

Hahahaha... that's a leading question for sure.

Seriously tho guys, I am wondering how big a discada can be and still heat efficiently on a standard burner. I’m thinking in the 24-26 inch range but I’d love to hear what everyone is running out there.

I'm guessing everyone is probably using a discada that is working for them. So no need to make it bigger to see where the drop off point is.

Now here DT is your chance to do the scientific hard yards and make a a unit that you can change the disk to see where the drop off point is...
