Hello from Ft Worth!

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by aggie91, Nov 3, 2010.

  1. Hello All,

    I started a google search on Fatties grilling & ended up here tonite.   Liked it well enough I decided to join up &  "hang out" a while.

    I have been grilling/smokin meats (briskets, fish, ribs,. fajitas, cabrito, etc) since I was a teenager.  Learned most of my starting stuff from "undocumented workers" on my families place in South Texas.  Can't handle the hot/spicey stuff any more, so I am always on the look out for new ways to cook "stuff".  This looks like a great spot to learn things . . . .

    Equipment for "cookin":

    I have a pit I made in 1992 that started out as 8 ft of 36" Casing.  made it as a "in line" fire box/cooker with 2 ea 2 ft doors.  Cooks 4 turkeys or 5-6 briskets on a good day.


    Weber 22"

    Jenn-aire gas grill

    3 fish/turkey fryers

     18" & a 22" discada cooker (google plow disc cooker).  Been cookin on these since I was a kid.

    Newest toy I picked up is a 38" fire pit with a swing out grill top for burgers, steaks, chicken, etc.  Also make a killer heater/fire pit for colder nights or for the grandkids to do smores before the adults get down to serious weller & crown consumption on cool fall nights!

    Thanks & Glad to be here!

    Welcome to SMF. Now I noticed that you have a Discadia 18 and 22. I have the 22 and would love to hear what you are cooking with it
  7. Scarbelly,

    For the past few years, I have been using the disc cookers for frying fish more than anything else.  They cook quicker & use less oil than a fish fryer.  When the holidays hit, or we have family over, they get pulled out for breakfast tacos in the mornings.  I have used them for fajitas, chicken fried steaks & chicken (you can make a BIG batch of gravey after the chicken fried is done!)

    I have used it for flash grilling veggies such as green beans, kernel corn, carrots, or anything chinese . . . they don't call it a cowboy wok for nothing!

    We use it quite a bit in the summer.  It keeps from heating up the house, and we can sit outside and relax.  I have a char-broil single burner cooktop that works great with it & propane is always easy to start!

    I don't have any recipes as such, I normally just start with a little olive oil and wine & go from there . . . . .
