I am still very new to the site and a rookie at smoking. I have a little experience smoking in gas grills with indirect heat and a Brinkman electric water smoker. Just recently I have purchased a Cookshack Smokette 025 and hope to get a little bit more serious.
So far I am very happy with the quality and results of the Smokette even though I have barely used it. Since it is a shorter unit, one thing that I definitely would like to change is getting it off the ground so I don't have to bend down or sit on the floor to work with it. Also it just drips all of the juices on my deck when I slide out a rack of meat. I picked up a plastic tray which will hopefully help out.
Cookshack sells a nice stainless steel cart for it which is around $400 I believe. That would definitely help with getting it up higher, but I started look around and came up with the idea of getting a stainless steel table. In particular I was looking at this one:
I was thinking that I could bolt the smoker down on the left hand side of it and have the rest of it as a work area. Living in Michigan it would be exposed to the elements so I expect the stainless would work well. I currently cover the smoker and would plan to do the same and keep everything outside year round.
Do you guys think this would be a good approach or do you have other ideas? Thanks.
