    Does anyone cook with a disco? We used to cook with them all the time in NM, but I don't have one now. My brother in law sent me a link to a place that sells them called www.southwestdisk.com so I'm looking at getting one again.

    If you do, do you have any special recipes?

    Never seen that before, but I am immediately intrigued.

    It's one of the best, and most easy ways to cook fajitas that I've ever found.

    People around here often cook paella on a similarly sized shallow pan and outdoor propane burner, but I've never seen a plow disc used. I don't know why it wouldn't catch on here either, because at least every other household has a propane burner for boiling seafood. I'd like to take one camping if the propane bottle and burner assembly wouldn't take up too much room.

    We took one camping in 2006 and 2007 with a bunch of college friends and we could feed everyone on one disk setup. You can cook scrambled eggs on it in a hurry too. I think I might buy just the disk and build my own base with a replacement burner setup from the store. If I can't get it done then I'll cough up the money for the really nice one these guys make.

    I brought this to nXm2. Lays flat as a table in the box and the wind shield is removable.

    Here we go. I'm surprised everyone from below I-10 (this is the nice way of saying it) doesn't have one of these too. I would also say its more like 4 out of 5 have a propane burner. Some of you people probably use a turtle shell to cook in. :d

    Find me a big enough turtle and I'll make you a big bowl of turtle soup in the shell!

    OMG, this post just reminded me when I was in university in Mexico. The discada with a homemade salsa verde and corn tortillas and of course some cold (ice cold) coronas...

    The typical northern Mexico (Torreon) discada takes chopped pork, chopped beef, ham, bacon, beef hot dogs, onions, tomatoes, jalapenos, black pepper, chorizo, salt, and corn tortillas. The salsa verde takes tomatillo, onion, garlic, salt, jalapenos.

    The discada has to be placed in the dish (disco) in the following order:
    A little vegetable oil
    (Chopped) ham, hot dogs, bacon
    Onions, jalapenos
    pork and beef
    Tomatoes and chorizo at the end so that the tomatoes let some of the juice out and the chorizo leaves the flavor without burning. Mix the contents of the dish.
    Put the tortillas on top of the discada...

    The salsa verde
    Cook the 6 jalapenos in a pan with oil (remove seeds if you dont like hot salsas)
    On a separate pan cook in water the 3 tomatoes, 2 tomatillos and 1 onion with a pinch of salt and a chopped garlic slice
    Remove the jalapenos from the oil and place them directly in thr blender (with a little cooking oil from the pan),
    Put the cooked onion, tomatoes, garlic, a little chopped cilantro, a pinch of salt, a cup of water from the boiling water where you cooked the veggies.

    Blend the salsa. The little oil will give it some thickness and creamy side to it.

    Take a tortilla, put some discada in it, a little salsa and enjoy...

    If I attend one of the events and there is a disco around I will cook... We will have to spend at least 1 hour or so doing all the grocery shopping but it is a freacking awesome (not so healthy) dish that can feed a whole crowd.

    Disco
    Base
    Propane tank
    Burner
    Chopping table
    Blender
    Shallow pan
    Deep pot
    Knife
