It's a "discada" or "Cowboy Wok"

It's used for cooking over a fire. Made from an old plow disc and a couple of used horseshoes (Thanks Britta). I added removable pipe legs to hold it over our propane campfire. 22" in diameter, oughta hold enough for Kat and I...

Easy to make, except for the hours of grinding to remove the rust pits... Next time I'll just buy a new disc that's not all rusty.




Didn't get pictures, but used it to cook some chili rellanos for dinner.

Will have to extend the legs. Even on the lowest setting, I had too much heat.

We'll forgive you this one time for not getting photos, but just this once. Gold Tooth Smile:

-It looks great. How will you keep it from rusting between uses?

Just like a cast iron Dutch Oven, clean and dry, then oil lightly.
Store it in a dry place afterwards.

Going to a Teardrop gathering this weekend. Planning on cooking fajitas one night and fried rice the other in this.

Back from the Teardrop gathering. As planned I made fried rice one night (no pics) and fajitas the next. The wok worked great, and was also put to use as a serving platter to keep the food warm at the potluck.

Nice! And, probably the smallest potluck gathering I've seen to date. Perfect for the general theme of tear dropping!
