    Basically all you need to do it cut a piece of whatever size pipe and weld spokes in it.  Cut the pipe an inch or two wide.  We will have to find some pics of other smokers that have that style wheels on it to show you.

    Cool find.  At first I didn't think i would read hot enough, until I saw the big C on it. 

    That will look great on there.
     
  11. That looks like it will match the style of your smoker really good. Why can I never find stuff like that laying around.

    Flua, I can't say enough here.

    You are a true craftsman. This is one of my top favorite threads, beautifull work.

    If you don't mind my asking.

    How much do you think you will have tied up when its all said and done, dollar wise in material.

    That thermo is fantastic, I really like the looks of it.

    Thanks "Tom37" I appreciate you like my work. I really dont now, many parts have i had since befor and some parts for "buddyprice". I dont now the wight yet, but my guess is 50-60 kg (110-132 lbs). I think the stainless price  6 dollar/kg  In dollar maybe 320. I can compile when i finish...

    Flua,

    Awesome start on the wheels!

    I knew you could do it---I thought it would take longer though!

    I just looked up "Craftsman" in the dictionary----Your picture was there!

  18. Flua, you are an artistic craftsman. The wheels are over the top!!! I must say that your build is like reading a good book. I can't wait for the next chapter.

    I want to jump ahead a chapter or two and see some great BBQ from that work of art.

    Thank you for showing us the most beautiful build I have ever seen.
