The table attaches to the handle?  Very slick ! ! !

Yes, the table just slips over the handle.
There may be pics of that part in the Mod Month thread.

I haven't seen the thread about that table but do like it, especially if it serves double duty for the WSM.

I bought casters and hardware to add wheels to my WSM but haven't done it yet. Noticing how easily the WSM legs can get a little cattywampus I'd want to additionally do a triangle or some other brace between them.
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch

@addicted-to-smoke    I think I am going to attach some bigger casters to a wooden platform and maybe use bolts with wing nuts, for quick attachment/removal.
It doesn't roll great with these smaller wheels. I have it stored on a shelf in my barn, and I only wanted the wheels to move it around if needed when in use...if it rains, or if the wind is blowing and I need to re-situate it. I'll see if I can find a picture of the underside of that table and post here

ATS, I replace the six flat headed screws with nuts and bolts to get a much tighter fit with the legs.

@addicted-to-smoke , there is some awesome info and pics in this thread. I made the underside/hook-on part of mine very similar to this one

  This is my take on WSM wheels. I don't like drilling holes so the clamps work good
I do admit that bigger wheels would be better
But at $12.00 each for 4" diameter wheels I need 4 per platform and I have 2
Of them 12x8 is a s--tload of money.  I rather spend it on brisket
I can't stop lovin my Weber!!!

@Lemans, I like your overall concept!

If you were looking for a permanent solution without drilling into the leg, you could use a bolt/hook like this:



and run it down through the bottom of your platform.

Great idea! I'm trying to sell my big wsm but a little dolly for my 18.5" is way overdue.
