Hash, if you should see this post and still have pictures of your Cowboy Wok/discada that you made please post them here .

Hash made something like this out of an old plow disc .

Phit, we use that pan all the time! I'll see what I can dig up.

Hash, I have been looking at how to's on making a cowboy Wok and more so where to buy the pre-drilled(holeless) large disc and saw the below idea and like it .

" While you're welding, consider welding 3, 3/4" nuts evenly spaced on the bottom, so you can put 3 pieces of threaded rod in if needed to use over a campfire, length determines height. If not used, they just are there. "

I built an adjustable stand for fire usage but I have never put it to the test.

What I kind of liked about the legs was you could put four instead and have four short legs so you could set it on a table or something and it would be very stable to work with after the cook .

But in all truth though a seperate metal ring to use as a cradle for it would be much easier to do .

The bottom of a DO would probably work just fine as a good cradle .

Just say'n

I took 3, 3/4" pipe couplers and welded them to the bottom of my disc. Took each coupler and drilled and tapped for a 3/8" eye bolt to use as a set screw. Used the eye bolt so I had something big enough to tighten by hand. Slide 3/4" emt in it for legs, and tighten the eye bolts down. Still portable and very stable. I have not used my disc for a wok, but use it for a base/table for my dutch oven. Picture show thumb screws but changed them to eye bolts later. Two horseshoes make great handles or hooks for hanging.

phit,,, wal Mart and china seem to go hand in hand so i would question what the material the cooking surface really is and wonder what was being leached into my food, specifically lead.

A carbon steel wok is the thing. The thinner the better. And, better yet, hand pounded with ridges.

He's right but I'll let him tell you why. That would be about the best pan you'd own and you'd be using it for much more than just stir-fry, trust me.
