If you’re not sure what a disco is or how to cook with it, here’s a little breakdown.



It’s basically a metal disc up on legs, and is kind of a cross between a wok and a BBQ. You make a fire under the disc and wait for it to burn down to coals. You then pour a puddle of cooking oil in the disc, and throw the food in the oil! The best way to do this is to let the oil heat up and then cook things separately. Cook a bunch of onions first, pull them out as they start to brown, then throw in some garlic. As the garlic cooks, eat the onions. When the garlic is ready, throw in some rabbit legs and so on.

The kids absolutely love this form of cooking. It’s outside, they get to play with fire (?!), they use fingers instead of forks and plates, they can help put things onto the cooling rack, and they can hand the bones right to the dogs. What more could you want from a meal?
