Perhaps I'm missing something, but.....My only concern is how deep it is, gonna have to use A LOT of fuel. I realize the grates lowed down into the pit, but I wouldn't want to have to cook below the exterior surface.
Super ghetto.. Pahlease! we wanted a good working height and then when Mike ran some test burns we realized just that. So Mike worked something out to raise up the fire. I am not sure what it was but I do know it is temporary and we will fix that after we break it in this weekend.

. I'll even have my Santa Maria grill fired up.
Your right, you gotta love this place. It is justa big family. It was very cool to meet a new friend and it was pretty awesome seeing our girls connect like they did. That last pic was taken just minutes after they met. A good time was definitely had building this thing. And as far as the Bash goes we will be there, even if I have to kidnap him
