I had a length of pressure treated 2x4 lying around in the workshop and bought some cheap casters from Harbor Freight and threw this together. I works great and doesn't show any effects from heat. This photo was taken after at least 6 long cooks.

Can we see the bottom? I'd like to see how it's put together.

Looks nice and simple.............and very functional.

The two pieces are cut in the center with a dado forming a lap joint.

Is the drum bottom resting on top of the dolly instead of the drum edge? Looks like the grooves are deep enough and wide enough.

Yes, the grooves are for the lip of the drum to fit into to keep it in place while rolling about.

I have stolen your idea too bro (thanks)
I find that i have to concave the bottom (drum) so it fits in the slots. :biggrin:
