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.


I have one, I call mine a Mexican Wok. Great for doing fajitas with onions and bell peppers, then use it to warm the tortillas.

Same problem in my neck of the woods! That's why I had to import mine from the Westside of the state where the rocks aren't as plentiful!

That's the first thing I thought too....Just gotta get my hands on one now. I'm headed to the thumb of michigan in 2 weeks. LOTSO farms there so you can bet I'll be looking around.

Any propane burner will work. It's best to get the discada off the flame a hi though, 4"-6". I am working on a mod for mine to get it up a bit.

Most of you probably already know this, but for those that might not, an SRG make an excellent heat source for discada (or wok), especially when you are already roasting something

Have any of you guys tried it on a Weber kettle? Interested in getting one but using it on the kettle vs having to also get the burner will be a lot easier sell to management!

You can use a disc over charcoal. It's not as easy to regulate temps so be careful if you plan on deep frying. It would be perfectly fine for fajitas, stir fry, breakfast scrambles etc...

You'll also want to figure out a set up for setting the disc on. You could put it on the cooking grate but it will want to flop around. You could remove the grate but you don't want it directly on the coals, nor do you want to block air flow from the top. Which could happen if the disc was resting on the rim of the kettle.

Thanks. Very true about smothering the coals. I'll have to come up with a plan.

Three bolts with washers and nuts is all you need to adapt the cooking grate.



This is from my UDS charcoal basket, but should give you an idea. The three bolts would face up forming a triangle for the disc to sit on. Three points is best because it allows you to adjust the disc if the cooker isn't perfectly level.
