I plan to suspend the grill about an inch from each side of the circle to hopefully not set it on fire. There will be four casters on the bottom of each 4x4 posts. I have already had thoughts of adding a modification that would hold a large umbrella should it rain. Anyway, I am interested to hear everyone's thoughts.
SolidWorks?

What type of wood would you recommend for the table top? Also, just so I know, why not use pressure treated? Just because the chemicals they use to treat the lumber would get into the meat?

image.jpgThis may help you a lil on how the EMT brackets work. I mounted mine on the underside due to my weber having a stacker on it so flush ness with table top was not important to me. Hope it saves someone some time in there project.

I used 1 1/4" brackets due to the heavyweight steel they use in bigger size brackets. Mounted them 1/4" under so I would have a 1" gap around the wood and kettle.

Older pressure treated lumber had arsenic in it. I am not convinced that the new treated lumber is safe. How about a tile top or stainless ? Both of these can be cleaned. SS performers are cheaper and easier than building a table. Portable too.

I certainly would not go the trouble of building a nice table and drop a OTS in it. A OTG is the only way to go. No ashes staining and or burning your nice table.

I don't have a kettle, but built a cart for my WSM. I used beadboard for the sides and some stain grain oak for the top. If you get the sides of the grill away from the wood, you will be fine. Heat will rise so just give it some room. The real reason not to use pressure treated wood for the top is that it has a real tendency to split. Even the 4x4 post are notorious for splitting, keep us posted on the project! Sorry I took this pic with my cell.

I wouldn't be too concerned about using PT lumber for the table top since the old arsenic is long gone and now they use a copper based chemical instead. Besides, who tosses a brisket or butt on the table top before loading it on?? I made a small, portable table for my grill out of PT lumber and i have no problems at all with it. I do understand the PT's tendancy to split and warp so that could be an issue. You could also use cedar for the tops, like i did with my gas grill carts.

From the last picture it looks like the handles would rest on the table top and elevate the kettle edges off of the table.

Why the tall back? I mean, I could see if it had some shelves on it, but right now it looks like all it has is a 2x4 at the top which won't hold much it the way of cooking goodies. Just looks kind of unfinished to my eyes. Maybe add a few 1x8 shelves? Just thinkin out loud here. I do like the table idea for kettles though, makes for a great work area!

Maybe add to the tall back some shelves and/or a door for a spice rack and to store other things.

My son has made some concrete counter tops. Were I to make a cart for one of my kettles, I'd probably use that. But I have too many kettles (including a SS Performer and an older Platinum) so I pretty much have the counter space I need. However it would be very cool to make a cabinet with some decorative brick and a concrete counter top. I'd mount a turkey fryer burner in it and have a mid-height shelf on which to place my mini-WSM.
