Here's the $10,000. question, where do you find flaxseed oil? I was thinking in a natural food store and /or vitamin store?

Got my flax seed oil (not cheap!), my disco is a little over 20" across and not as heavy as yours, but I don't think it will fit in the wife's oven. Where or what did you put yours in to get it to 400
 degrees? I do have a temperature heat gun, I can do like you did but use my gas burner, of course the temps would be hotter in the center than the side, I'll give it try.

I placed mine in my gas BBQ. Which a portion of it stuck out of. I just rotated it every 30 minutes.

You could do it on the burner too. Just move it around a bit. You don't want to go over 500 though.

I use my heat gun for disco temp readings when frying and cooking.

Ooops about the 500 degrees, it was a little hard to control. Right no it's cooling down after the first treatment. I'm doing this in my driveway in Medford, and its kind in a slant. I'll wait until everything cools down and level the burner and the disco. My burner is a Eastman that I go thru Amazon,com.
The burner has these funky fingers were the disk rest, and its kind of  hard to adjust to be dead center.

I looked at that burner before building mine. Since you are in Medford you should join us in September at the Paulina Lake Messabout. I host the event every year for a group of boat nuts. We all either build boats or just like boating. One of the highlights of the trip though is the food. Every year we do a group meal.  This year it's going to be stir fry in the woods. We will be doing it Mongolian grill style with everyone choosing what they want putting it in a bowl and then me stir frying it up. Bring your disc along and help cook!

This year it is going to be Sept 15-18, Little Crater Campground Paulina lake.

I would love to, it just so happen that I belong to the Lance Owners of America and we have rally the same week end at the KOA Mt. Lassen/Shingletown and do some Dutch Oven cooking, for some unknown reason the folks love my cast iron pizza (I used a 12" CI skillet and the lid of my Lodge DO)  and everything else I cook in my Dutch Oven. This time I'll be using my Ultimate Turkey Roaster which I can cook a 14 lbs. turkey in about 1h 15 minute. Maybe another event? I go out to Mackenzie River Lodge twice a year...maybe then?

Starting my third coat of Flax seed.

It has been a while since my last post. After cooking a few times with my disco,  one needs a lid/cover to simmer or lid related functions. DirtSailor, do you have one, or did you fabricate one? I've been looking on line for one. I'm not sure getting a flat or dome lid, any suggestions?

Hey you have a Klingon Battle Spatula! "We kill our meat on the grill."

Seriously a spatula with a serrated knife edge could be a formidable combat weapon that no one would expect.

Nice stir fry.

Once I was at a foodie campout and a jealous husband went off the rails threatening that he had a knife. We responded that we all had knives.

I just use the lid off of a wok that we had. It won't cover the entire disc though. I have been looking for a bigger one but they are hard to find this big.

I don't know if you've gone through the site Katom , but I see a big difference in price once you pass the 16 1/4 "
