It Is What It Is:

I threw a couple of coats of paint on it to make it more weatherproof.

Time to close it in. I would have preferred more plywood but it’s still so expensive so I settled for some 3/16″ Chalkboard/Whiteboard at less than a quarter of the cost., and I wont have to paint that part of it.

3 sides done and it’s time for the big reveal!

In Anthem we had 8′ tall cinder block walls enclosing the back yard so the beat up old coffee table I had my vertical smoker on was no big deal.

With half of Sun City passing by on the fifth green I figured I’d better up my game a little. Now I can keep it under the eaves and out of the weather when not in use but can easily wheel it out next to the grill when it’s time to do some smoking.

The front panel is held on with velcro for now. We’ll see if that lasts. If not I have another idea that I like better anyway. I’d just have to pick some 3/8″ dowel rod and knobs. I’m also going to work on the way the smoker is attached to the cart. I just tacked it down with some scrap wood for now.
