The makers of FireDisc Grills out of Katy, Texas have created one great tool for on-the-go grillers, from tailgates, beach parties and picnics in the park. Not only can one create fast and tasty burgers and dogs on the FireDisc, but can also think outside the box and have some fun where funnel cakes fit the bill.The FireDisc 22 has deep, 22-inch disc that is useful for frying lots of goodies, including our favorite fair food. And setup is fast and easy. Insert one frame into the other, attach the mini propane bottle and it’s ready to go.With a couple cups of vegetable oil, batter and powdered sugar, anyone who brings a FireDisc to their next outing will get lots of smiles and return customers.And any grill that can create a fun dessert like a funnel cake is a necessary tool to have in GrillaxNation. Who’s got the milk?
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) melted butter
  • Powdered sugar, for topping
  • Peanut oil for frying
  • Combine milk, egg and vanilla in a large bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda, and sugar and gradually add to wet ingredients.
  • Beat with a mixer until a smooth batter forms.
  • Fold in melted butter.
  • Pour batter into a funnel or squeeze bottle while using your index finger to stop the flow of the batter.
  • Bring the funnel over the hot oil (365 degrees) in the Fire Disc and release your finger to start a stream of batter while moving the funnel in a circular motion to create spiral-like shapes.
  • Fry for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown, slightly puffed and floating.
  • These are similar to beignets, for you NOLA lovers. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy.
