if you have a harbor freight tools close to you they have a trailor dolly that works awesome for $49.00.
it lets you move your pit around with ease even on bumpy ground.

That dolly would not work for this smoker.  It is way too heavy...

This is one of those smokers that takes several men to move it or a truck.  It is not easily moved..

Yea, it is almost twice the size of a FAT 50, so add that much more weight from the metal..

WOW, that thing must be a beast!!!
you are right this dolly might be a little lite for the job.
i have seen some that are heavier duty but they come with a stiff price tag.
