Default Changing wheels on my Bandera

I'm looking for ideas to upgrade the wheels on my Bandera Smoker. The ones that came with my smoker just don't seem to work well when I try to move it around. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hey brother. I did a little research and one of the Brethren went to Harbor Freight and found some real nice wheels about three years ago. You might try them for starters.

I haven't modded my wheels yet, haven't had the need, but when/if I do, the mod will be no wheels. And if I have to move it, I'll use a cheap-ass harbor freight-type dolly.

8 U bolts and 4 new casters bolted to the square tubing. Worked for me.

I wanted better wheels and additional work space, so i mounted the Bandera on a stainless steel table. I can't fine the picture with one,but here's one with the back to back smokers.

That looks like a good set up. Where did you find the table? I hate to buy a new one at restraunt supply.

Here's the Harbor Freight wheels I put on my Bar-b-chef. Axle was a 3/4" rod turned down at the ends to 5/8". Don't know if this is what your looking for cause I don't know what your smoker set up is like. Good luck.

Smile Thanks all for great ideas!

This was my first post on this site and WOW these ideas were terrific. I never thought about something as simple as U-bolts or something like mounting the entire smoker on a table. I will research the sources everyone mentioned and figure out what makes the most sense for me.

I have thought seriously about mounting my Dera to one of these from Northern Tool. $199 and extremely mobile.

Mine is strapped to a dolly.

The new wheels I bought for it have been sitting on the log rack for a 2 years. Standard lawn mower wheels fit the back and some 2" casters fit the front.
