I make these all the time. Sandblasting them is the safest method to remove all the powder coat and rust. Never use smoke from a wood fire to "darken" the food surface of the disc. Seasoning it with lard is excellent, but the trapped burnt carbon from the firewood is a nasty carcinogen.

Interesting. This seems to be globally used. 👍

I forgot to add, when seasoning a discada, use about a 1/4 cup of regular table salt mixed with the lard, bacon grease or whatever. The salt keeps the smoke down and seasons the surface much better. Also, when cleaning the surface, if its really gunked up with stuck food on the surface, just boil water in it, pour about a half cup of salt and then get a clean dry rag with tongs and scrub the surface. It gets really clean and doesn't contaminate the surface, unlike soap does. Then a light coating of cooking oil, heat it up to where it barely starts to smoke, immediately kill the fire and , dry it with a clean cloth or paper towel and its ready to store until the next cooking session.

Bro....... I made two of these. I paid a local powder coat guy $35 for 28" disc to sand blast. Nice and clean. I used to take a rosebud torch to burn the paint off, but that became too hot and actually would warp the disc itself. Sand blasting is king.

I've never heard of this before. That would be something nice to make with my everlast welder.

I'm making my own DIY Skottle and have a rusty plow disk that I put in a pan of distilled vinegar. I can rub my finger across it after 4 days and the rust rubs off and I see black steel. No grinding so no grinding off metal. I will leave it soaking for another 3 days and then take it to the carwash and pressure hose it clean to get the vinegar off. This plow disc was rusty AF and I don't own a grinder so I believe I will be able to clean it off with a wire brush.Thank you for this video. I live in So Cal so it took some doing to find a farm that had one for sale.

I'm wanting one of these, but not sure that I want a double punch on a man card. How many would that convert to on a woman card, lol?

What impurities are you cooking out?
Burning River Bushcraft
Rust, 60 years of farm crap. You can see in the video it smoked like a chimney till everything burned off.

Discos are not used primarily in Nothern New Mexico. Damn near everyone South of San Antonio, TX has one and everyone in the rest of the state knows someone with one. They are used throughout the Southwest and Louisiana. A discada is the meal cooked in the disco. Good video, btw.

He said northern mexico not New Mexico. But yeah everyone pretty much has one from California to Texas.

South Africa and Sweden also. They seem pretty multicultural.

It's called a disco as in disc , discada is what you cook on it . 👍
Burning River Bushcraft
They go by a lot of names, but you are correct discada is the dish. Thanks for watching.

Usually in mexico we add a ring of steel at the edge of the disk so it can hold oil for fried chicken on the disk oh and add the thin potatoes to fry u will love it greetings from mexico. (2" thick the ring).at least
Burning River Bushcraft
The ring is a good idea. It's deep enough already to fry fish. To fry chicken I would have to keep the chicken rotated. Thanks for watching.

My inlaws made a huge hobo stove out of half a 55gal drum and set it on top. Feeding the fire through a square hole in the side. He made a paddle like spatula out of wood. Makes excellent fajitas.

A few tips.. To season it use Cisco with salt and onions. Slice and cook the onions with salt and Crisco till they dark brown. Then discard onions, wipe down the Discada and your seasoned. To clean it use a little water, salt and a potato cut in half. Add water to the Discada with salt then rub the salt into the Discada with the potato like you would with a sponge. Then wipe off any grim with a paper towel and add oil to keep it from rusting. You also can buy a great Discada from Southwest Disk. They have the best price in Albuquerque! Also if you use the 15% discount code (jaxx10) from jaxx drinkwater and give him a visit on his ESvid channel and thank him. That would be great.. esvid.net/video/v%C3%ADdeo-vsNzRo5DwAA.html&sns=em www.southwestdisk.com

NEVER use Crisco REAL lard is cheaper and better for you! Crisco is man made shit.

Vinegar is a good idea but not great at removing paint....so stick to flap wheels
Burning River Bushcraft
Keith Cronk maybe it would work, the grinder is my speed.

Great idea It never ceases to amaze me how many great things are right under our nose and we dont see it until someone shows us. Then it is so obvious we wonder why we didnt think of it. subscribed atb
