We are working on some cool competition carts for Fatboys,Gaters,Parties and to hold a pair of the new G2 Chubbies which will be a real sweet set up. Ideas guys what would you like to see on them.

Pneumatic wheels for rough ground, side table(s), tie downs, an easy way to secure the smoker onto the cart for transport. Built in Guru bracket?

I may be interested in one for my Party if the design and price are right :)

Carts would also act as a wheelie bar on your vehicle.

I like the simple design and function of the cart in the last picture, just enough to get it up higher and also save space in the vehicle

Did you ever have issues with road grime/ rocks ect?

I'd like to see a BBQ Guru intake mount that is easy to R&R like the Big Green Egg mount, instead of the bolt on bracket and screw in fan fitting.

I took a look at a lot of cart designs from guys here on the forum and and carts from R&O Smokers and Pitmaker. I like all of them out there.

I'm happy to share pics of mine but I had it fabricated and don't have all the measurements, so you are on your own.

But I wanted a small footprint cart for my Gater, so the Backwoods cover would fit over it, and I have a very uneven lawn from which I must move it from my cook area to my comp trailer and up the ramp if I choose. Tipping it on the back wheels and moving it like a handtruck was my priority. The little casters I got from HF would not cut it for me. And I am 6'2" and I don't like stooping over to work my meat!

I got 4 10" run flat swivel casters, but switched the rears out with 2 Rigid mount.

I had some locking fold down shelf brackets, some stainless steel grab bars and a sheet of stainless steel from another project, that were incorporated into the frame.

It looks like the Backwoods G2's have a slide out ash tray attached to the fire grate- that would be something to consider on a cart IMO, and possibly a drip pan feature that might use a galvanized drip pan or full size aluminum baking sheet to keep your deck from the greazzyness that comes with the BWS.

Considering what some of the carts offered that I've seen online, mine was about on par with the going rates, I could have painted it myself instead of powdercoating the frame and saved @$100. All that steel adds weight to an already heavy 300lb Gater.

Looking forward to seeing more designs out there!

Well I wasn't thinking it until you said cooler. Then I got to thinking what's more epic than a cooler and I was like BAAMM kegerator. Seriously though the mockups look good.

I like the smaller Party design. I ordered my Party with the permanent stand on the bottom (8" I think). Would that cause a problem with mounting it in a cart like this?

Should be no problem at all would just need the foot print dimensions for mounting.

Cool. As far as I know it is the same as a stock Party, just taller, but I can get all of the measurements when you are ready to start building these.

Ok here are the base prices with a few options. Remember these can be totally customized with what ever you can think up. Prices do not include shipping. We hope to have a finished one done soon to give a better idea of how they will look but I can tell you the work will be outstanding!!.

FYI if you have a G2 series smoker I need to check to see if base costs will differ due to the extra depth.

Just got the answer no base cost difference
