    Its a outdoor wok on steroids! Made from a harrow disc or as some refer to them plow discs.

    Mine is 24" and weighs in at 39 pounds.

    Here's some pre-seasoning photos



    Welded plug where the hole was for attaching to the harrow.

    Hey Case......

    Those can be so much fun. Are you going to add diving boards on the sides?

    No plans at this time. The thing is so thick and big that I think I can use the edges for warming and the middle for cooking.

    This brings nice memories. I cooked many a meals on the disc.

    And the disc harow is exactly where we got it.

    Can cook your meats and potatoes in the same time

    I've tripped over many of a discarded disc in my youth, but never heard of cooking on one.

    For the record, the plow, disc and harrow are three separate tools. First you plow -- that cuts deep into the earth and turns it over. Then you disk, and that cuts up the plow furrows and evens them somewhat. Them you go over it with a harrow, which has a a bunch Of fingers, like a rake on steroids and that brakes up the clumps left by the disc. Then you are ready to plant

    I can't take credit for this recipe........it's from BBcue-z on another site.

    But I can tell you it is a killer meal.........

    B~

    Made Italian sausage pasta dish today, starting with these few ingredients:
    [​IMG]

    Browned some parboiled Italian sausage cut into large chunks
    [​IMG]
    Removed the sausage and added the pasta to season it. I don’t care for plain pasta, so I stirred in some butter, parsley, and some parmesan cheese, and a hint of garlic butter
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Removed the pasta and added some oil and slices of pepperoni to season the cooking oil
    [​IMG]
    Then added the veggies
    [​IMG]
    Then garlic, dry Italian herbs and some red crushed pepper
    [​IMG]
    And diced tomatoes and some wine
    [​IMG]
    Added back the sausage and the black olives
    [​IMG]
    Then the spinach and let every thing simmer a while
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I then added some marinara sauce
    [​IMG]
    Added back the pasta and let everything simmer a while
    [​IMG]
    Topped the pasta with parmesan cheese and fresh parsley and served it with garlic toast.
    [​IMG]
    Yum [​IMG]

    Thanks for showing this Case!![​IMG]

    Most of the "Disc Harrows" around here are still behind the Tractor.

    Some of the farmers call them "Diskers".

    There used to be other guys on this forum using them---Maybe you'll wake them up!!

    Thanks Bear! Like the Mini forum I asked for this one so those that do Disco can show off the cooks. There are some fantastic ones out there on other sites. Some cool builds too! Mines all seasoned and ready I just need to start using it. I need to modify my propane burner a bit to make it work. I could use it on top of the stove tec stick burner today if I wanted too.

    Bet my turkey burner would work for this.

    Oh my. My father-in-law would be rolling in his grave with laughter if he could see this. He was an Iowa farmer and a tinkerer.

    Talk about your ultimate "re-purpose, re-use"

    I think I need one of these for deer camp! I could see some serious scrambled eggs and breakfast potatoes being cooked on this.
