Default Making WSMs easier to move

I love my WSMs but hate having to disassemble them to lug them around. Even disassembled they are awkward and heavy.

Any mod ideas to make moving easier?

Wheels & handles on the middle section.

When getting one out or putting one away I carry them wholly assembled, right hand under the charcoal bowl, left around the center section.

Wheels are a very easy addition.

I thought they were easy to move around compared to all my other cookers . When I take mine to competitions or over to someone's house I put the racks and water pan all in the bottom then put the top on that so it is the round ball looking setup and then tie that together. The middle section is separate. Still a little cumbersome, but works well.

Get some wheels at Harbor Freight. $15 and 10 minutes with an electric drill and you're in business.

Some guys use a latch system to hold them in one piece, maybe a bit heavy but handles will make it easier to move.
