Didn't hesitate to spend the money for my new CS but couldn't bring myself to pay that much for the stand. Went to a restaurant supply place - lots of used stainless stuff, bought a used hospital cart for $50. Handy hubby mounted my smoker to it, per pic. Easy to move, has storage, and makes using the smoker lots easier. He had to remove some racks from the top - took him less than 1/2 hour. That's my idea of a good deal. Am loving my smoker and trying new recipes.
