Hey Gary, I too have the seville cart for my #1 smoker. The #2 should fit on it without a problem and yes you can adjust the height of the top shelf. Since I am not John I hope this answers your question.

Thanks for the clarification Bill.
I think I'm going to keep it low on the ground now that I've had a chance to pick it up; it's got some heft and the thought of being that top heavy has me reconsidering.

Hey Gary, Several people use a cart from Harbor Freight. Check out Divotmaker's post I will give you the address: http://smokinitforums.com/index.php?topic=3722.0 and if that cart will hold a #3 it should also hold your #2.  I just have bad knees and lower back so need my smokers up off the ground. Good Luck.

I ordered a regency restaurant equipment stand (30 deep x 24 wide) (All Stainless)  including the legs and lower shelf from Webresturantsupply http://www.webstaurantstore.com/regency-30-x-24-16-gauge-stainless-steel-equipment-stand-with-galvanized-undershelf/600ES3024G.html and a set of casters from Castor City and then build a gig to ensure the holes lined up and it works great for my model 3. The door edge is about 6 inches back from the door edge so no dripping on the deck. I also purchased a second cart 30 inches wide and 24 inches deep.

What is the height of your cart for a #3. I know the SI cart is 221/2 but what height do you guys have. How many inches would you say is too tall?
Thanks

A “Briskitarian” is one of two types of people. Either one who smokes his or her “Hunk of Goodness” until it probes like Butter or one who enjoys his or her “Goodness” smoked until it probes like Butter.

Doug, the SI cart ledge, that the smoker actually sits on, is 21".  I have a Harbor Freight cart that I used with the analog #3.  It sits 33" high.  It was a little high, for the stock 3, but absolutely too high for the 3D (you can't read the display).  Personally, I wouldn't go higher than about 24-26".  You want to be able to look down on the top of the smoker.

The table Peter referenced, is 26" tall....perfect!

Thanks, that's exactly the info I needed. Still vacillating between the 3D/4D. Good thing I'm not rushed. I picked up this animal the other day in a action. Never seen one like it before. The current model supports 175#. I sent mfg a request for info. I believe I can take out one of the 3 side panels on each side to shorten it. After it gets pressure washed I will investigate that further. Has one beast of a cutting board on it though. It hold FULL size sheet pans. I just put those 18x13 (half size I guess) in there sideways to see if they would fit.

Currently it is 36 inches tall. 29 inches deep and 21 inches wide.

I believe when I take it apart I will be able to reassemble it to be either

19 inches tall with 4 Racks
or
28 inches tall with 8 racks.

As I recall it would be beneficial to have a full size pan to pull out when putting in meat or removing meat to catch drippings.
Looks like your telling me the best height then would be the 19 inches. I think I would come up with a different top than the cutting board because if it cleans up well, I think I would like having a cutting board
that is 28 3/8 X 20 3/8. Also being shorter it would be more stable.

Sounds like a plan, Doug!  I'd stick to the 28", and see what you think.  At least for me, at 5'9", that's pushing it.

I picked up this fiberglass topped cart at an estate sell yesterday for $12.50.  Not the prettiest but does the job.  After I took the photo, I added some bungee cords to the wheels to keep it from blowing off
