Tim Taylored my Smoke Hollow 4-in-1 combo.

  1. I bought my Smoke Hollow 4-in-1 and built it with the mods I found on this site and blogs to make it a good smoker. I keep it in my Garage covered to avoid rust. The problem I had is my first smoke on it I had to take it from the garage to the back yard across wither grass or unfinished ground. With the small plastic castors that come on it this didn't work out so well. It was a royal pain in the behind to get it around the house. So I thought what would Tim Taylor do? In true Tool Time fashion I monsterized it with some steel plates and 10" pneumatic tires. Now it rolls all terrain style and it increased the height 11" which is actually perfect for grilling and loading the smoker. My wife bought me a sign for it so I put that on the front while I was at it.

    Rolls like a dream.

    More Power Yeah!
     
  3. Do you plan on motorizing it in true Tim Taylor fashion?  23hp Kawasaki sounds about right!

    Found your mode, looks great. I am in the same boat - need to take the grill out from garage all the way around the house on grass and need bigger wheels. I can find wheels easily, but where did you find the assembly to attach wheels to the grill? If you could point me out in the right direction, that would be awesome. I got the same 4-1 combo today and assembling it now :)
     
  12. I got the wheels at Harbour Freight. I went to a local steel shop and bought 2 pieces of 1/2'X4" plate steel I measured across the legs and added 8". 4" for each wheel so they would sit outside of the legs. I then drilled the steel and used 1/2 inch bolts and nuts to mount the steel through the original mounting holes in the legs. I then drilled out the holes for the wheels and used 1/4" bolts to bolt them on with. I painted the steel plates and then bolted them on. I have used it many times over the past several  months and I must say it was worth every penny to make. Rolls like a dream over grass, rocks or whatever. Plus the height of the grills is perfect to cook at. No bending over. I love it and would do it again in a second.
     
  13. Where'd you get the "Dad's Grill" sign?
     
  14. My wife got the sign at Hobby Lobby.
