    For those of you with weber smoky mountain cookers....lots of people put wheels on them , but after looking into it and thinking on it for a while I decided to build a rolling cart with side table attached....it's pretty well complete now. Here's a few pix.






    One of the last steps was to attach the support for the table which a buddy of mine fabricated out of a scrap of 3/8 threaded rod. I also went back and covered the platform with aluminum flashing to make it a little more fire resistant. Using scrap wood and found material I bet this whole thing cost 20 bucks , tops. The most expensive part was the 4 wheels from harbor freight. Here's a little vid of the fold down table in action......

    I love it...very nicely done.   I came close do doing something very similar  but backed out because i didn't want the shelf to be in the way of it being mobile.   Now i see your folding shelf and i'm reconsidering.

    I found a length of 3/8 threaded rod in the dumpster at work....probably overkill , but it was handy. You could go with any kind Of light rod that bends easily. Then I just glued n screwed a couple wooden cleats underneath to catch the kickstand.

    Very cool, i've got my gears going also on something similar! Also looking at building a contraption to lift the smoker up to add charcoal and wood, don't like the idea of using garage door handles when the bowl is full of water ;p

    Good l;ooking cart/shelf... I need something not necessarily for carting around the backyard.. but when at my house and using the mini.. I need a good side table.. storage area maybe under the mini. but also needs to be compact cause Im running out of room on my carporch.. thanks for some ideas :)
