Char-griller Mods!


Joined Aug 15, 2016
Hiya folks!

I just joined the world of Barbequing and wanted to come and seek some expert advice.

Recently got a Char-griller 2828 and a Side Fire Box. I'm going to do some modifications but wanted to cut down on having to cut metal so I'd appreciate some help!

1. The stocks wheels suck something terrible... Is there a replacement wheel out there that would not require having to install new axles or drilling holes?

2. The side wood strips leave something to be desired. Has anyone ever replaced it with a better surface that might be suitable for cutting and prep work?

Your help is greatly appreciated!

I'm not familiar with your smoker, but I'm sure someone who is will be along shortly.

Since this is your first post, at your leisure would you swing by Roll Call & introduce yourself.

That way we can all give you a proper welcome
