Default Concrete block Pit

I'm thinking of building a permanent concrete block pit next to my back patio this spring.(see attchment) Anybody got any ideas..?

I'm going to line the interior half way up with fire brick and leave a 1" gap between outside block and fire brick for insulation, thinking of using sand to fill gap but worried about water and freezing making it expand and break the pit apart. I am going to build a shelter to enclose it with a roof.. but it will still be unheated during the winter....
