BBQ for the D.I.Y

:roll: had half a day to myself the other day, and finally got around to making something i had wanted for ages ,a wok bbq plate.

had seen one of these ages ago at a w/e campout ,and thought it was a good idea. 8)
for anyone wanting to make one it is quite simple ,all that is needed is an old plow disc(the one i used was 24 inches across), four six inch half inch nuts and bolts,a large square washer,a welder,and a grinder/sander

using the grinder/sander clean the inside surface to a reasonably smooth surface , then repeat on the outside , though as much attention not neccesary,except for where attaching nuts

with the disc upside down,mark and position the four nuts equal distance around the disc,allowing enough room for a medium size gas ring to fit under, then attach via welding(either mig or arc)

then place square washer over bolt hole in centre of disc and weld in place , then filling over the small hole in the washer centre as well.

place the four bolts in the attached nuts ,and turn the plate over.
proceed to fill in the bolt hole from the topside with weld ,then grind smooth to finish.

when ready fire up the barby with a low heat to "burn in" the suface and coat with a suitable cooking oil,and your ready to cook up a banquet!

i havent put a gas ring under mine yet as it is still in the prototype stage but will get one soon ,but works just great with small amounts of timber, and doesn't require great amounts of fuel to keep it hot, the extra washer and weld filling acts as a sort of heat bank in the base then radiates up the wok walls

also a great jack platform if stuck in sandy ground! 8O

Hi Ferno
They work real good,both as a BBQ/wok and a jack base as you state.
I went with a new 24 inch plowdisc,as the old ones are getting pretty hard to get.Burning the tar off, or whatever they use to temper was a bit of a problem,had to throw it in a big fire.
I have handles welded to the edge to get it off the fire.I didnt weld legs on as you have,but made a "trivet" to adapt it to my homemade gas fired bbq.When camping out,4 rocks are good enough to support it.
Koonacks(yabbies your way or prawns on the coast) garlick chillies and oil TO DIE FOR :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: just throw em in live,they stop running pretty quickly

have thought of putting the handles on but thought they mite be awkward as it will sit nicely in the spare tyre on the roof rack. the legs are removable ,as they are just six inch long bolts ,just the nuts are welded to the disc, so if need be rocks can suffice, but hey,they do the job 8)
just thought a few mite be interested in it as a "one day "job [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img]

Hi Ferno
Missed the all important "removable" legs ops: ops: ops: .Before mine gets its next outing I will update it with a set of your style legs.It will save having to kick the 3or4 rocks out of the fire after!!!!!!!!

WOK/ BBQ plate

Geez I had one of those for a BBQ plate in 1970, I pinched the idea from a mate who is now deceased he was a sharefarmer at the time did all his cooking on it (him and his wife and 2 kids) I had it until I left it at a shooting property in Nth'rn NSW about 5 years ago someone wanted it more than me cheers
