BBQ Cart

This project started off like so many others. I needed something, went to the store, and decided that I could do better. I don’t know if I did but it’s finished and handy to have.

The wood is big box store 2” X 4” Cedar milled to about 1.25” X 3.25”. The joinery is mostly lap joints that are a little shallow to get a reveal. For the top I headed to the local Habitat for Humanity ReStore and found a nice piece of granite, size 26” X 26”. The finish is “Olympic Stain+Sealant in One” that I sprayed on.

I do a lot of grilling and smoking (meat) in the summer and so far this has been nice to have. I keep it covered when it’s not being used.

Thanks for looking!

Nice, Chuck! I bet having a nice big slab of granite is really handy when BBQing, also, it can double as a sharpening station in the off-season.

But how exactly do you use it? Do you set the meat on it before it goes into the smoker? Is it a general work station?

Yes, just a general work surface.
