I thought about that but I decided that I didn't want to cut up the original framework. I do like the idea of the pneumatic tires though. I have a rough driveway that doesn't make a good rolling surface for the little Performer casters.

Then again, you could just build a whole new cart for the grill as a fun winter project
That is a great looking table colonel. I think I want the whole thing lifted not just the grill. Since it is a Stainless table I want to have the work surface up higher so I can use it too.

No worries there Chris. I will definitely post pics. I have been thinking about this and I don't see it being very difficult.
