Thumbs up New Lang mod

Ever get frustrated trying to push a heavy smoker with little casters in the grass? I did.
Love the smoker... don't like the tiny casters too much.

Broke out the metal cutting tools.... and added an 18" female hitch sleeve.


Added an 6" drop/5" rise hitch... and bolted a 1-7/8" coupler on the end.


This way... can use my trailer dolly... and save my back and effort trying to push thru the grass.... then remove the coupler and hitch to save my shins!!! (The 2" hitch components were on sale at Harbor Freight)

Good thinking!

I have that same problem with my Eggs, but don't see that working for them.

Great idea.
Good thinking to make it removable too, else there'd be busted shins everywhere!
