Moving WSM

Discussion in 'Charcoal Smokers' started by nashvilleboiler, Mar 25, 2015.

  1. I have two 22.5" WSMs. I use them all the time at my house and just wheel them from the garage onto the patio. I just bought a tailgating spot for next football season and plan to take at least one with me to tailgates. Any tips on how to move them? I'm thinking that I'll probably just use a ratchet strap to hold the pieces together in the back of the truck, but maybe someone has a better way?

    Be careful not to over tighten the straps or you may warp the center body.

    Me personally I would place the center in a corner of the truck bed and rope it into place, then place the fire bowl and lid in. Probably need to use other stuff to wedge the fire bowl and lid in place. Also make sure you have a metal ash bucket with you to dump the ash and hot coals into when done.

    I'd say build a mini and take that with you...
