A buddy and I both had yesterday off from work so we decided to build a mobile cart for my t-shaped smoker. I wanted something that would a) made the smoker easy to move around the yard and b) be able to slide in a 2" receiver hitch.
Here is what we came up with (bear with me on the cellphone pictures, I'll get some better ones tonight).
1st up - a shot of my T-smoker on the left and my buddies UDS build on the right (probably more to come on that in the near future)
Framework welded up, hole drilled in the 2" receiver for the hitch pin
Test fitting the frame to the axle
Frame and axle mated together, painted and burning on the smoker. Note the peg leg - it's a grade 8 bolt currently that is threaded into a nut we welded on. Should provide a little adjustability in uneven ground. I figured if I need more adjustability I'll pick up a different bolt with longer threads. This one came off my buddies Jeep suspension after he put a lift on, guessing it'll be strong enough for this application.

Last night after I got home I touched up the paint, tonight I'll get some additional pictures of the rig plus some pictures in "tailgate" mode hanging off the back of my Jeep. I'm really happy with the way it turned out, going to fire it up this weekend and cook something, not sure what yet.
There will be two final mods, one is a bottle opener and the second will be a removal American Flag to fly off her whenever I'm cooking with it.
