Discada Pron....
 
Working on a article on Plow/Harrow Disc Cooking and, well, needed pron. Only way to get pron, is to cook up some pron!
Well, first I noticed that I'm running out of space. I may need to convince Mrs. Brisket that we need a bigger home as "MY" children are outgrowing their current space. I fired up Q Can II and other than a slight leak around the lid, it puffed away like a Drum should.

I wanted to pay a little tribute to my late Grandfather and use his disc/disco to do the cooking. It's currently my dad's but he's told me it will be mine some day.
I talked to my dad and he gave me some history on the disc. My dad remembers when my great grandfather gave it to my grandfather back when my dad was very young. It's origins go back to Chihuahua Mexico. It was a tool that was used daily to make meals.(no indoor stoves much less gas in the home) It was commonly set upon a 5 gallon steel bucket with a door cut in the bottom and it was fed with a wood fire. The metal on this disc is much closer to cast iron than just steel. It takes very little heat to get it hot and keep it there. I use way more heat with the steel disc that I have. My dad is 60 and says that it's easily close to 100 years old. A true piece of history. He also said it's very likely that it was actually used at some point by my great grandad to plow his fields.

The ingredients. Basic discada. Beef, chicken, turkey, chorizo, weiners, polish sausage, garlic(LOTS), onion (white and long green), radish, japs, yellow squash, BACON!, pepperoni, tomato, cilantro.

Beer is an ingredient. My grandad, dad, have used it, I'm not going to break tradition.....no way, no how!

Let the rising steam heat the torts.

BBQ Bandit 03-07-2010 02:55 PM

Great lookin stuff, Bob!!!

Looks throwdown worthy.

(I'd hit that!)

Ron_L 03-07-2010 02:57 PM

Oh... my... GAWD!!! Nice job, Bro! I love the seasoning on the disc! That is like an old cast iron pan that has been handed down through the generations!

BobBrisket 03-07-2010 02:58 PM

The discs are fairly easy. Any Farm/Tractor supply place will have them in stock. From there, just plug up the hole in the center and grind down the welds. Handles are usually old horseshoes, but can be anything.
The burner stand I built about 3-4 years ago and I made ffrom steel that I scrounged and a an old tire rim.
Pretty much let you imagination do the work. I think there's a thread somewhere in here. I'll see if I can find it.

Thanks

Here's another Discada thread with some pics of my disc that my dad gave me for Father's Day a few years back. Mine in made from the bell end of the internal water heater tank.

Some info from Mark
http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...hlight=discada
My BIL's disco set up and a big arse batch of chilibeans I made on my burner and the vessel in this pic holding the beans belonged to my grandmother.
Notice the handles on my BIL's disc.
