I am very intrested in buying either the party or the fat boy. How much does the stand raise the smokers. Thanks

I think they can customize them for you.

Just be somewhat careful. You don't want to make the BWS too top heavy.

FWIW, There are a few photos floating around on this forum with folks and their stands.

We always suggest you do not go any higher than 16" including caster height ( if using).
The price of $137.00 is for any any height up to about 16".
The cookers tend to get top heavy after that.
Good Luck in your smoker search.

if you're handy with a welder or know someone who is you can make them. I have 2 chubby's sitting on stands I made. Stands are 24 inches high made with 1/8 in angle iron. I made them so they bolt together for ease of storage. I also added a hole so the smokers can bolt directly to the stands.
As far as being top heavy...its gonna depend on the size of the cooker...taller like the Party vs shorter like the chubby or fatboy. I have had no problems with smoker wanting to tip over...I actually have to work at it to get it to lean so I can move it.
