    Have been seeing a bunch of posts on some other sites for using a plow disc as a wok so I had to give it a try

    Here is where I got it

    http://www.southwestdisk.com/

    Here is the stand and burner - the legs are removable and telescope up to 22" which is where they are now

    Here is the wok on top

    Our first run was some paella

    [​IMG]

    Starting with the Chorizo

    [​IMG]

    Pulled that then cooked the chicken and pulled then added onion and garlic

    [​IMG]

    Cooked the rice a bit before adding the chicken stock

    [​IMG]

    Here we are with the chorizo,chicken, chicken stock, onions, garlic, peppers and tomatoes - also added spices at this point - some paprika and some saffron

    [​IMG]

    Added some shrimp and peas for the last 5 min

    [​IMG]

    Here is the finished product

    For the first time out with this we were very happy - will add more seafood next time this is all we had in the house

    Love this wok

    I will be doing a second run with it today - Making another Paella for RandoCammando and his wife after attending the KCBS Comp in Vista  - Found a couple of parts in the box that I missed the other day - like the ones that hold the wok off the burner LOL - will make a difference in how it cooks for sure

    WOW Scar looking great wish i had one will add to the wish list.

    A few years ago we would stir fry all the time but moved to a new place and the microwave way toooo low and keep cutting the hands under it as we cook it so we stopped.

    Now i have away to do it outside and enjoy the outside also.

    This could be something to do while waiting on a butt to cook, a light lunch LOL.

    Throw some avocados in at the end.

    Good smoking...

    Hey now that things pretty darn cool and I really love some good paella too. Now that would be really nice addition to the outdoor kitchen and I have a place just for it.

    Did the second run on the Paella yesterday with RandoCammando and his wife after the comp in Vista. The pieces I had not installed the first time hold the wok up a few inches off the burner and made it much more efficient to cook with. Paella turned out even better

    The discada is a great tool.  I enjoy mine.  Keep cooking.

    I wanted one of these as soon as I saw one of the other members using one about a year ago. I don't have the skills or equipment to make one of these so this link may be my ticket to getting one. Thanks.

    The Disc was $60 and the burner was $85 and if you enter USMC at the end you get 10% off the shipping - the package with shipping was at $150 mark

    I already have a turkey fryer burner so I think I would use that. It wouldn't be a nice as the burner with the extendable legs but it would work.

    Just make sure that the unit does not sit too close to the burner as it gets too hot and has a hot spot - found that out the hard way when I did not install the wok holder on the burner [​IMG]

    I have done breakfast for 35 Boy Scouts.  Eggs, hash browns and bacon.  Philly cheese steaks turned out great w/green peppers and onions.  To season it I made doughnuts.  Very cool.

    Ya know I was thinking that this would be a great way to do some Huevos Rancheros for a bunch of folks or eggs benedict with the eggs cooked in the wok -

    I love the doughnut idea - maybe some little donut holes in some cinnamon sugar or jelly filled

    Seems like the choices are endless- just lookin for ideas on what other folks were doing

    WHOA!! That is *awesome*

    I am blown away by how HUGE it looks!  I cannot even think of why I'd need something that big, but if I did, I'd get my mittens on one in a heartbeat!!
