    Held my annual Paulina lake boat gathering this weekend. Broke in the Schwenker with a load of spares one day and Tri tip and corn the next day. Made some JoJo's and onion rings in the Disc. Then we did a leftover scramble and hot cakes this morning. Good food good times! Oh yeah and blow torch nachos!

    I need to know everything there is to know about this Discada. Where did you get it?, Links to recipes. will any propane burner work with this like a Bayou Classic Kab 6.

    I was looking into the 24" RIO GRANDE at Southwest Disc. Might get one and weld three points to fit the schwenker....my good lord that would be awesome!!!!

    I want to try this on our next guys trip in november!

    My disc came off a harrow from a scrap yard in the Willamette valley. A friend picked it up for me and welded the patch in the middle where the hub was and the horseshoe handles. Most burners can work. I looked at the KAB6 prior to building mine and decided that it would need some mods. Reason being is that the disk is wok like and it needs to be supported preferably on three bearing points. The discs from southwest are good if you can't find a harrow disc around. I wish I'd put three handles on so it could be used like the schwenker.

    As for food, anything that you stir fry, deep fry, cook on a griddle can be done on the discada. So far my favorites are:

    Sqwib one more thing make sure that the disc is heavy. Mine weighs in right at 40 pounds! Season and care for just like cast iron

    I contacted the seller, trying to get a custom made three handle, we will see.

    I have a few lids from my schwenker when smoking. This is the top lid, no pic of the bottom lid. The bottom lid is an 18" lid from a cheapo charcoal grill.

    Looks like such a good time! Great food goes with great friends.

    You do have to change the name of the Disco though. If people think you are cooking with me, it will ruin your reputation.

    Points for great cooking all around!

    Thanks Disco!

    Ha, I think its the other way around!

    Schwenking and Discoing go hand in hand!
