Add Wheels to Smokey Mountain Cooker

I love Weber grills. I’m just going to say it. I love them. They are relatively inexpensive and great quality. I have a Weber Charcoal, a Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker and I’m eyeing a Weber Spirit gas grill for fast outside cooking when it gets too hot to cook inside.

I’m working on an inexpensive outdoor kitchen right now, which I’ll blog about soon. Of course one of the most important aspects of every outdoor kitchen is your grill or cooking apparatus. Whether it’s a charcoal or gas grill, you have to build your kitchen to work with what you have.

Since I have two Webers and hopefully a third coming soon, I built my kitchen differently. Instead of building around the grills, I’m instead making the grills adapt to the kitchen.¬†Basically, I want my grills to be mobile. I have essentially created a bullpen for the grills. I line them up and only pull out the one I need at the time and then park it next to my kitchen. With the Weber Charcoal grill, it comes with wheels and a handle so you can move it around.

The Smokey Mountain Cooker, however, is super lame and doesn’t have wheels. You pretty much plant it and leave it there for its entire life. Or if you want to move it, you have to take it apart and move the pieces or carry the entire thing.
