I recently completed a grill cart for my Weber Grill that greatly improves the functionality I think. The actual grill gets dropped in this weekend and I’ll post a few more pics when that’s all in. Nothing new regarding the cart design, I actually modeled this design to one another member on here posted a few years ago and I think it turned out really well. The whole cart is made out of Cedar and sits on 3” double locking casters.
There are a million of these grill carts out on the internet for the Big Green Egg, but I just couldn’t find one for a Weber Grill. The difficulty with the Weber grill comes from the kettle contacting the wood cart, which is something to avoid. I did not want to have a tile top, which would have solved the problem, because I don’t think those look as nice. Too much country kitchen style for me personally. I eventually settled on concrete to provide a damper and sort of a heat sink between the grill and the wood.
I made a form for the concrete ring out of extruded polystyrene, poured in the concrete and let it cure. Following that, I mounted it to the grill cart with a ledge underneath. It now sits flush with the top and provides a small gap around the edge.
Overall, it turned out great and I look forward to dropping the grill in and firing it up. Thanks for looking.
