    SnSK: Question about base size

    Quick question for you SnSK owners: what is the footprint of the cradle? I will be buying a concrete A/C condenser pad to set it on and need to know what size to get.

    What is the SnSK you’re referring to? The Komodo?


    If nobody else answers I’ll measure when I’m home from work


      I measured the cradle opening on mine where the SnSK sits and it's 18.25" The bottom of the SnSK is less than 18-1/4" because there's some padding on the cradle and a little extra room.

      Edit to add...

      This page says:
      • Bottom of bowl: 18 inches in diameter

        fuzzydaddy Thanks for the reply. Is that the size between the wheels of the cradle at ground level??

        58limited sorry, I mis-read what you were looking for. I measured the base of the bowl. I'll go outside and measure the wheels and post that shortly.

      With both front wheels in the locked position and pointed outwards, it's about 27" wide. Here's a couple of photos. Does this help?

        fuzzydaddy Thanks! That is exactly what I needed to know.


          Glad fuzzydaddy answered and saved me running to grab my tape measure out of the garage!

          58limited I will caution you that if you are setting this up on something like a 3 foot square AC pad, be sure those casters stay locked. If you roll it off the edge, it WILL go tipping over, and likely breaking. Mine was assembled on the concrete area by my pool, and has never left that since it arrived in January. Its very heavy, and rolls smoothly, but I am very conscious of falling off the edge of the concrete, which varies from 2 inches above the grass at one end, to 8 or 10 inches at the other end. The casters are definitely not up to rolling through grass, and would sink in most likely due to the weight of the cooker. If you have to move it to and from that pad, you will want some strong buddies to lift the kamado out of the cradle, move the cradle to the new location, then carry the kamado to the new location of the cradle.

            Thanks for the advice. This is pretty much the set up I have for my current kamado, once placed I won;t move it until I start the backyard kitchen project.
