Default Any Travle Tips for the WSM?

I'll be ordering a WSM any day now (watching eBay prices, etc.).

I won't be going to any competitions but am curious - how convenient is it to pack one up and haul it to a friend's house for smoking?

Can it be put in the back of an SUV or is that a mess waiting to happen? I have a pick up but we often take my wife's Explorer.

They are a pain in the butt unless you take them apart...Tim and I have tranported them in a trailer and use cargo straps around the cooker and through the handle - and rachet it down snugly. If I was using a pickup I'd take it apart and lay everything down flat...I've done the in the back of the Explorer, too, but it takes a lot of room. One time it traveled in the shower of the travel trailer!!!

Someone who competes in a lot of contests here in the KC area transports his WSM's (he/they use about 5 or 6 of them) in large dia, short plastic barrels like you would ice down a keg in. The barrels have handle holes and he bungees the bullets into the barrels.

Once on site, he inverts the barrels and sets the WSM's on top of them to raise them to comfortable working height. Much nicer than standing on ones head to acess the fire door.

Plastic garbage cans, slightly bigger than the WSM.

Duct tape (or other secure method) the lid of the garbage can on.
