    So, I've put my smoker together used it a couple of times and it works great! I have a couple more thing to do to her and she is complete. I'm having a real hard time choosing wheels for this thing. I would like to keep it more of a patio style smoker but at 700 lbs I'm not sure casters are the answer. Any suggestions from you builder guys on what to do?

    Thanks for the input Gary. I'm not going to be moving mine much a couple of times a year so I really don't want to do a trailer but if I need to load it onto a trailer and take it somewhere do you think the steel wheels will roll well enough for a 700+ pound rig?

    Nice power trowel in the background by the way! 👍
     
  5. I'm thinking if you do have to move it a few times a year and on to a trailer You may want different wheels, Mine was built at #2 son's house loaded on a trailer unloaded in my driveway and rolled around to the patio. These wheels work as good as the way they are attached.

    Here is one more pic of a vertical, insulated RF we built and put the same type wheels, this thing was Heavy

    must take into consideration.. will it be rolled on concrete only ? or across grass/dirt terrain ??

    Good question, it will probably be a little of both although Rollin on grass won't be for long if I can help it. Problem is finding the right fit for the look of my grill and still have it functional. That's my problem. Keep em coming!

    Do you guys think a 3 inch wide by 10" diameter steel wheels would be enough to move it around 6 or 7 times a year on and off a trailer? I like the look I think it fits my Pinterest pit pretty well.
