Wish you would have posted a pic. I like seeing what others discada looks like. Did you make yours or buy it?


I made my first and second Discada's.
1st was a 22" with traditional Horseshoe handles. Sold it to a friend.
2nd was a 18" with traditional Horseshoe handles. (Still have it)

I have located a 24", but haven't decided on the build.
My buddy the Welder got a promotion to City Attorney, and has
reduced time now...

The 24" has lots of sideboard room for Tortillas plus lots of room for cooking. Only a matter of time till I have a larger one again.

I have cooked on Discada's since sometime in the 90s.
I saw some Mexicans cooking on one out in Southern Arizona, and we built my first one when I returned home. I located the components, and my welder made us two. (I love cooking on em)

That is real cool.............I think I have all the stuff to make that! And I'm usually not critical about descriptions........but I'm a farm boy, that is a disc blade, not a tractor blade......


Disc blade, yes. Great idea to create this !

I gave in to temptation. I ordered a 24" Discada from Agri Supply.
Amazon had it at my house in 6 days.
I didn't need a burner. I have one I built for my Discada's and for Craw Fish Boils.
Next day I seasoned it 3 times, then made my favorite Steak Stir Fry with it. The wide bottom of the 24" gives a better skillet like surface for cooking. The sides keep items warm.
The 24" will easily hold 3 lbs or meat, a Pound of Onion & Peppers, a pound of Veggies, a 16 oz. can of Diced tomato's and a large can of Pineapple Rings. (Love Grilled Pineapple)
I served it over fried rice.

WARNING... Don't order one of these and expect small or medium.
This thing is big, and weights 27 lbs empty.
(Think Party Cooker)
I did my 2nd big cook Saturday. I Deep Fried a bunch of Chicken pieces. I used Peanut Oil, and heated the Discada to 350°.
Another easy cook. *Fried Chicken and Mashed Potatoes and gravy.

Party on OleMan! It will be interesting to see how many folks want to potluck and gather at the campground this summer.

Addition to my 24" Discada thread...

I have a room off my patio where I keep my camp cooking gear, my new Discada is to large for my cubby hole that I kept my Discada's in.
Right now I have it suspended from a beam with a chain and a large hook. Ya got to plan for storage for your cooking gear.

I guess my next project is to build a larger bin that will hold my Discada's.

Last night I grilled Hamburger Steaks, Fried Potatoes, Fried Onions, and Mushrooms on my 24" Discada. One of my favorites.
Easy one pot meal. Clean up took maybe 10 minutes.

This weekend I'm gonna Deep Fry a bunch of Chicken Wings.
They cook up real well in a Discada.
That's another easy cook...
