I think I remember seeing a setup that had a propane burner under a metal disc shaped "wok". I can't find it though.

What is the thing called? And how would I shape a piece of metal into a wok/bowl? I have a burner and scraps that I can make a base out of but not sure about the wok part.

Thanks for the link. I did some more searching.

Looks like they go by:
-Disc it
-Cowboy Wok
-Plow Disc

How do I shape on of these things? The name plow disc, does that imply that it was once a piece of farm equipment that got converted?

Yes it is a plow disk with the center hole welded closed and seasonded like a cast iron pan. AKA Discada

I am in the process of building several myself.

Man, those things are nifty. I was all ready for a quick impulse buy, but alas - they are completely out of stock on every item they sell! Crying or Very sad It does look like they have been away for awhile, but should be returning soon. Hopefully thats the case.

How do you go about building one of these? I don't know much about metal working. Do you take a flat piece and just go at it until it takes on the shape you want?

generally you buy an old plow disk then go from there. You could also hit up a restaurant supply store for a really large wok and then get a turkey fryer burner and you are pretty much there.

I've been on a mission trying to figure out how to make one of these for cheap. So people have been using disc plows to make these. I found this site, agris supply, and they have cookers and disc plows to make into cookers. Go to the cooker part of the website too.

They have everything. I'm going to order soon. Right after the UDS gets built.

**I don't work for agris supply.**

If you have a steel scrap yard close by, you can always by a used plow disc from them. The last ones I bought cost me about $3 each for a 22" disc. All you gotta do is patch and weld the holes, and grind em down, and season the disc over a fire, and wa-la, you have yourself a cowboy wok, or discada, your choice.
