    Almost like a shallow wok.
    Good steel too, not a bad idea.
    Do you have it on a propane turkey cooker ring?

    it's a small fry setup for a fish fryer, not a very big burner...next project is to replace the burner with a bigger 3-fing burner and lengthen the legs on the frame for a more comfortable cooking height. i don't want too big of a burner because i want to be able to drag food up on the side to stay warm while still cooking in the center

    Okay, I was born in the city. So I gotta ask some questions.

    Doesn't the disc have a hole in the center? What is the diameter ? How thick is it? How did you season it?

    Look neat ! It look like something that would be good to cook crepes on.

    you have to weld a plug into the hole and grind it down. i made mine with a 22" disc. it's about 3/16" thick. i wiped it down with canola oil and seasoned it on the burner, just had to move it around a lot to get the heat to different areas. then i cooked bacon in it and rubbed the bacon all over it

    I have not seen a plow used in the field for 20 years...its all no till, chisel or cultivate around here.


    For the city folks this is a plow

    The disk portion cuts the earth like a pizza cutter and the plow portion (large curved metal piece) turns or flips the soil over so the top is now on the underside.

    Plow discs

    Went to a family reunion a few years back in Ruidoso NM. Some of my wifes cousins were from Clyde TX and brought a huge disc with them. I thought to myself what the hell is that thing good for. Well they proceeded to fry up some of the greasiest most delicous burgers for dinner and fried taters for breakfast.

    Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    As you cook the meat all the grease runs down to the middle and you just work the finished stuff up the sides till someone comes along and claims it.
