I was reading a suspense thriller that mentioned the word discada. Context clues suggested it was related to Texas BBQ and my curious nature took over. After some google search magic I learned what a discada is.
A discada has many names: cowboy wok, disco, and cultivator disk grill. But all it is is a discarded cultivator disk with handles welded on and the center attachment hole plugged.
To make my homemade cowboy wok I went to the local Co-Op and bought the largest cultivator disk they had and then fashioned a plug out of a piece of scrap.
I then welded the plug in the hole and tacked two horseshoes for handles.
After sanding out the paint and welding slag I finished my cowboy wok by putting it on a LP Burner and seasoned the disco just as you would a cast iron skillet.
I really love mine and use it when I am out on the land. It works best for fajitas, but anything that you can cook on a griddle, wok, or skillet will cook well on a disco.
I anytime I bring it out to a cook out everyone thinks it is awesome. I keep hoping I can find a 36 inch disk.
I have recently done and experiment in using a Discada on a kettle smoker. It took a few tries, but It works great now.
