After delivering our first ceramic grill (years ago), we recognized one important thing: we needed to come up with an efficient way to move the grills. We tried numerous moving methods but it did not take long to recognize our chariot mover was/is the quickest and easiest way to move a kamado grill.
For the last couple years, we've offered the chariot to our in-store customers who did self installs. When they returned the chariot, we generally asked, how'd it go. The consistent response we heard was....the chariot made the job so easy.
The Chariot package includes 3 of the 4 key pieces to building your own chariot:
- two cut-to-form wood braces;
- two threaded rods with nuts/washers;
- screws to attach the braces to the arms.
You'll need to add the fourth key piece: two 2" x 4" wood arms. It's a quick trip to your local lumberyard for two 2"x 4"x 8' wood studs. We don't include the arms because shipping them cost more than buying them.
Tools need to build the chariot:
We include these tools in the Chariot kit:
- bit to drill the pilot holes for the screws;
- Phillips head screw bit for your drill to drive the screws;
- spade bit to drill the holes for the threaded rod;
You need to supply these tools:
- saw, drill, measuring tape and pencil.
We include a video link to a build tutorial with each kit purchase. The cool thing is once you have the Chariot, you'll be set for any future moves. Don't be surprised if friends or family want to borrow it!
NOTE: Due to the special nature of the chariot kit, it is non-returnable.
