Title: New from Charleston, SC
Post by: bigssa on April 20, 2017, 04:45:33 PM
Hello all,

Came across this website after purchasing a WSM from Cabella's for $195 (could not resist the deal) and I was looking for a cart for it. Found a great post on the site (http://weberkettleclub.com/forums/wsm-weber-smokey-mountain/my-diy-wsm-cart/) and have been reading many other posts since then. I attempted to build my version of the same cart and it turned out pretty well. The only issue has been accessing the side door, but honestly I only open it to stir up the coals.
I also have a Weber Genesis E-330 that I bought on Craigslist which required new grates, flavorizer bars, and a good cleaning. Works like a champ.

Here is a photo of the WSM in the homemade cart. I added a hook on the side which does a great job of holding the dome. Also, I am not much of a wood worker but this was a relatively simple build and I highly recommend it.

Hello and welcome to the WKC from Eugene, Oregon.  New kettle cooks are always welcome.   I've been looking for a better method to make certain that the heavy winds in this area don't blow my WSM over during the night while I'm dozing off.   That might just be the ticket.

Beautiful!  Very impressive especially given that you say you're not much of a woodworker

Nice job on the cart! I was going to do the same thing but I decided to use an SSP frame instead.

Thanks all. The question now is what will be my next Weber. I am debating between the master touch and the 26 inch kettle. But realistically I will probably get what I can find on Craigslist.

what did you use to seal the wood?

I used Minwax Spar Polyurethan. I also put high heat aluminum tape between the WSM and the wood to protect it.
