I can't find a Mexican wok to save my life. Guess I'll have to make my own!
Get an old farm disc and weld up the hole
"Caution: Discada handles get hot during the cooking process"
....orrrr "Careful, hot is hot!"
absodadgumlutely corrupt correct
that's why we wear ELK SKIN ROPERS when cooking in them
by their nature(curved bottom) they tend to move around a bit while stirring
as you learn how to cook in one you will begin to appreciate this feature
too many folks make the mistake of welding legs on them which defeats this feature
a btw is in order here
i was first introduced to this style of cooking and this vessel out in the southern New Mexico desert where the disco was being used over a small fire of pucker bush brush whilst simply resting on 3 rocks
my friends were simmering diced strips of flank steak in red gravy(freshly ground red chili pepper and water) and they called it guisada which they served over a well seasoned rice w/ refries...
when simmered this way the flank steak was cut w/ a plastic fork tender ;-)
i'da never thunk it...
To hungry to continue reading this thread right now. LOL! Thanks A LOT!!
Seriously..... that made me really hungry... and made me want to get one of those!
A few "Overlander" websites sell a similar cooker they call a Skottle, which has three tall legs and the burner attached to the bottom. The burner uses the one pound Coleman propane bottle. All this can be had for almost $300.
I think the Discada and it's component parts can be had for less than $100. This seems like a no-brainer! I like the way it cooks and it looks like it can be placed on a table, on the ground or a truck tailgate. Great deal! I like it.
Once you put legs on it , it is no longer a discada .
Much like a wok , it must be able to rotate as well as turn on its axis to cook well .
I have camped for 2-3 weeks with nothing else except a 3 gallon stock pot and a coffee pot.
No one went hungry....
well stated & accurate
Just what the cardiologist ordered!
