In my many late nights of watching YouTube videos, I came across a way of cooking that originated in Mexico called discada. Discada is Spanish for cooking in an agricultural disk, or disco, that is used to plow fields. Me, being a food and cooking junkie, had to have one and thus I started my search. I looked at many different websites and compared prices with reviews and finally decided I was going to go with Southwest Disk. Not only did it seem like their product was better and more fairly priced, I also discovered the owner is a USMC veteran like myself.
Now, if you know me, you know I go big or don’t go at all, so I chose the 24″ Rio Grande with Sante Fe (horseshoe) handles with the Portable Height Adjustable Burner. The shipping was very fairly priced at $25 for a 40 pound package coming from New Mexico. I ordered on a Sunday, it shipped the next day and I received it on a Wednesday. So, that was another hit with me.
Once the FedEx guy dropped it outside the house, I flew out the house to get the box and open it up. Everything was in tact and was easy to set up, I only had to check the instructions once or twice. That night, we cooked Pork Tenderloin Marsala on it and let’s just say we had dinner at 4 PM because I couldn’t wait to see how it cooked.
As soon as I turned it on, I was in love. I love the way it cooks, how fast it heats up, how fast it cools down, and how easy it is to clean. Since then, we have cooked carne asada on it as well and plan on using it every chance we get. My wife, who isn’t a very adventurous cook, is even eager to take it for a spin. Now to just buy all the accessories for it, and maybe even some more so I can have multiple things going at once.
