    I've used something similar but maybe a bit more substantial if I took my MM to a cooking event...  You may want to put some type of plywood on top so that the plastic doesn't melt.  I'm thinking a Workmate might work better.

    What is the weight it will hold? Minimax is roughly 90lbs.

    It holds up to 300 lbs. I was thinking a 18x18 piece of tile underneath. I grill in the driveway so I like the portability

    This is what I used prior to building the outdoor kitchen. I cut the legs a bit shorter to get the grill the height I wanted.

    Seems obvious, but cut the top of the legs.

    I use the second one. Works very well, keep MM on it all the time. It is also very affordable. I also use a couple ceramic tiles on the top to place the MMO on-and have not incurred any melting of the base.

    Good lord! I didn't realize they weighed that much... and people talk about them as a "portable" option, lol.

    BGE claims it’s 76lb if that’s any consolation.
