Going to start building our rolling prep table this weekend and looking for ideas. What do I need and what don't I need? It will be 24" wide and 7' long and 38" to the top of the table. Any ideas or pics would be great.

What material are you going to use? Try to make the top easy to clean. Countertop material or something like that would be good. Another consideration is using disposable tablecloths to cover it for very easy clean up.

BTW, is the 24" dimension due to space limitation? You may want to go to 30". 24" really isn't a lot of room.

If Vern and you are going to share the table as work space, you might consider making it operational from both sides - drawers/shelves on one end open to one side and open to the other side on the opposite end. If you're both right handed, drawers on the right side.

I think our counter tops on our carts were 27" wide - 5' long and 39.5" high.

I would also suggest going to at least 42" tall.

Bad back mod. :cool:

Shane,
I may be able to hook you up with some stainless steel for your counter top. Let me know. E-mail or PM me.

Dont know about comp table but built this wash rack. And the taller the better for me.

Can't go much wider than 24" due to size in the comp trailer when the smoker is in there. If I had room I would build a 4' square so everybody could have there own side! That would be pretty cool.

I built this with the idea I would use it at comps-but it fits in better on my deck. It works great when I'm transferring meats and wrapping.

Weber gasser frame with a stainless steel top. I also dinked around with another one and came up with this.

The Weber frames are pretty sturdy, roll easily and the casters lock. Probably too low at 30"H, and 18"W. Depending on the style grill they run 49"-58"L. But its something to give you ideas to play with.

Another option is the Metro style shelving. Sugars BBQ has two 22" and two 18" WSM's on rolling carts, with storage.

I have my BGE's on a set.

Add a top of your choice or design and the possibilities are endless with the Metro shelves.

Why am I wishing I would have kept an old gasser frame? If anyone needs me, I'll be on craigslist doing a search for weber.

Nice piece! I suggest you carry a small compressor or canned air though. We have four sets of casters like those on our ceramic smoker carts and they all seem to need to be aired up fairly often. Moving a big heavy cart with a flat is no fun (experience talking here)!

I green slimed the tires, I hope that helps!!

We are going to share. It won't be a problem though, We have 4 team members and at any one time 3 of us are in there zero-gravitys!:-D Odd man out is at the table.

Anyone have any updates for this thread? I'm really interested in this style of outdoor counter space.
