As i write this i have 2 whole chickens going over Stubbs and pecan. I have an elevated deck, and the WSM is on a concrete pad in the yard. Its getting old running up/down to baste, check temps etc. Does anyone have their WSM on a wood deck? If so, what do you do to protect the deck from the WSM feet? They do seem to warm up, not sure if they would actually burn the deck boards. Not really looking to hump patio stones around either. Been thinking about a mobile base of some sort, however I am also thinking about the upcoming winter and what to do about my new addiction when its brutal outside. Thats another thread I know....suggestions???
