I made the handles vertical for two reasons. 1. the attachment points were very narrow and screws small , installed horizontally i didn't want them to bend or break the narrow bolts. 2. install vertically with my elbows at 90 degrees at my sides i can easily grab the vertical handles without bending my wrists. can carry with all grates and charcoal basket with charcoal. But really need to get wheels in this puppy.[/QUOTE]

You must be really strong or mine is heavier than most. I'm going to put handles lower so I can carry it strait armed and have it not on the ground. I like the idea of wheels but I don't like the look of them.

My thought for wheels is a bit much but I like to be unique. I want to make a base that will clip on and off fairly quickly and attach wheels to it with a hinged pin set up. This will allow me to switch from drum to drum and only need one set of wheels. It will also allow me to utilize multiple different designs since I have a few more to build.
