Just finished day 2 of my scrap yard reverse flow smoker build with my brother, using this 80 gallon air compressor tank. She’s heavy! Fire box is 19”x19”x19” of 1/8” steel, tank is 80 gallons of what looks like 1/16” steel.

We are about ready to get the legs welded on, but don’t know how long to make em until I get some wheels picked out. Most heavy weight capacity casters I’m seeing at stores locally don’t have locks, and the ones that do on Amazon seem suspect, so I’m kinda not sure what to do.

I’m hoping some of you folks have some caster setups you’ve used for big heavy smokers that you could recommend. She won’t be moving around much, will live on my concrete patio for the most part, but there’s a bit of grass she’ll have to traverse to get there.

These guys make some nice wheels if you are worried about the ones on Amazon. I have some of their’s on a 2500lb smoker.... is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
