Be mindful when buying casters

Post by Puff » June 24th, 2015, 8:52 pm

Any regular forum reader will know how much trouble I have moving my BIG gravity feed. I thought I was doing the right thing buying high quality - no flat 10" $39.00 each wheels. I present further evidence of how difficult it really is to get in and out of the garage. This lip to the concrete is just about 1/4" high. Unless there is a running start, it will not make it over.

I understand there will be a smaller gravity feed coming out soon... I am certainly looking forward to it.

If you get a running start with that beast you may not stop it.


If it's tourist season, how come I can't shoot 'em?

I know you have limited space to store it, but if you had that dude on a wagon type cart with some 12" wheels it would go all over that rough terrain. I sure would like to push it around for a while.

Funny thing, I was disgusted enough trying to push it back into the garage I was thinking of just giving it to a friend of mine. It's too big here and when we cooked two racks on Tuesday,it was empty. Like the roadrunner and the acme anvil company! I think I'll try that RC.

I got carried away and dumped the rest of the bag of lump into the chute and had to watch it burn for nearly 20 hours before I could start to let it cool to put it away. The ribs were done in 5.

Pete.... Check out JoyBauer on Instagram. Her post there today will surprise you. My wife wants us to eliminate refined sugar and this is something NBC is doing this week. You don't think I'd follow this stuff on my own!

Puff, what size smoker would be ideal for your normal usage? 23"x23"x23" internal? Slightly smaller/larger? Or weight? Less than 400 pounds? Lighter?
Regards,
Chris

Probably right around the size of the baby gravity feed. :BDHorse: :BDHorse: :BDHorse:

:oopssign: Ok, ok. I went and searched for the older threads. I sure hope Frank doesn't think the Baby/Horse is dead!
