I love it, that's exactly the sort of genius idea that comes from brain storming...

I've decided against a caster or a single tripod leg in front for stability reasons. The height of the drum gives it a very unfavorable center of gravity. And nobody likes to see a 225* object full of hot grease and burning coals to fall over in a stiff breeze. A fixed, out-rigger type leg set-up is definately a part of my future. But I really like the walker-tenis ball concept. Maybe when I build one for my dad...
