    Looks like it’s put together with empty shell casings.

    I know @bubbajack really likes his FireDisc. I could use this as a deep fryer and paella pan and Blackstone replacement.

    Looks like it is made in the same factory as my FireDisc, but has square tube legs. Same pot, same burner, even the logo is very close.

    I will have to say that it is a little less expensive. I use mine quite often and it turns out some great food. I like portability to take it places and feed a crowd.
    I drink cheap beer so I can afford good bourbon.

    If a 14" wok would fit on that (and it doesn't look like it would) I'd buy one now.

    It doesn't look like its designed to accommodation the spherical bottom. 

    but i bet it would be pretty easy to mod a wok ring

    That is a cool looking grill and I bet a lot of good grub will come off it.  My only hesitation would be if someone were to buy it for the primary use to make paella. Looks like it has a hot spot and the edges would be cooler. I think that would be tough to get even socorrat. I am thinking by the time the edges crisp, the center would be burnt or have it good in the center and soggy on the edges.  Not the end of the world though. But then again, it depends on what size pan.  I am sure you could rig something up.
    Or it might work perfectly.  Hurry up! Someone buy one and let me know...

    Wouldn't work so well as a paella cooker, but would kinda get the job done. 

    @bubbajack brought his FireDisc to BB last year, and it was quite the workhorse. I lost track of of the cooks churned out on it.  A number of us cooked on it, and I was surprised by how long one bottle of gas lasted. The pot of that FireDisc was quite beefy. Great for deep frying, stir fry, etc.

    Keep Ron at bay, and I may be able to sober up enough a tad earlier.
