I am looking at making a prototype for an idea I have. This would be a rack put in place of your grilling grate on a weber kettle (of any size) to hold your disc wok over the coals. It would be centered and open around to allow for proper air flow.

The design would allow for any disc wok with a rounded bottom to sit inside of the ring.

What say you brethren with discs?

tom (tjv) sells a similar set up for the Big Green Egg at ceramicgrillstore.com called the Spider..

Not sure how many people cook with woks on Webers but it certainly could work or maybe start a new craze !!

good ideal but will it get hot enough?

I think so.. I was reading another thread on here from Mike and he said his charcoal actually got too hot.. I'm thinking if I space it up, and you can control the temps through the bottom vents, should be a winner. I designed the thing tonight. Now its on to building and testing!

I havent totally abandoned this idea, just set it in the "I'll get back to it eventually" pile.

Is this for the discata, or plow disk?

Yes. I was using plow disk to explain the word discata. Sorry was supposed to clarify yet created confusion.

No problem.. I am sorry to have forgotten your pro-series lower grate in new holland. Then to boot, I didnt get to hang out with you but for a minute when you were setting up. I guess we will have to wait until Sayville!

Hey I want to try this discata cooking. Do you make or retro fit the plow disk?

A few issues you may need to address. If the weber is open too long it will get too hot. Can you create a way to raise the disk up and down in relation to heat. Also is there a way to incorporate some sort of "cover" under the disk to reduce the amount of air flow to the coals?

My design is sort of simple. I will let you know when I get a prototype to test. i dont want it to get too hot or not hot enough.. I may have to make he rack and disc as a set so I make sure it fits the same on all the 22.5" kettles.

Discadas come in two shapes: one has a concave cooking surface, like a wok. The other style is convex, for cooking tortillas. Would be nice if you can accomodate both types with one ring.

Im putting this one back on the back burner. I have some other projects to get finished. I will either get this back on track on a weekend (if I ever get a free one) or over the winter if it slows down.

Now if you had a 22.5 inch version of one of these that fit my weber I'd probably want one.
