I had been storing my smoker and other stuff on the patio floor, and Gloria wanted me to move it, even though I would wheel it to the edge along the grass when in use.. So I built a 2 ft. x 8 ft. platform, painted it, and had the gardener place it along the fence. The gardner had some pavers that were from an old job, so he installed a 4 ft. x 8 ft. section for me to wheel on (whellchair.). It's not a very big area, but it keeps my hardware off the patio and I'm happy too. Notice I didn't make a space for Gloria's 22.5 in. weber... she can wheel it someplace else. It'll probably end up on the patio floor. It's all good my friend. Thanks for viewing my BIG smoke station. When the banner is up... things will be smoking soon!
