Edit: After looking at the firebox detail it looks like the brick are thicker than 1.5". If you want to save money while building, you could use the standard brick.
perfect. i can design from that dimension of brick. That design is my ultimate but that size is a we bit large for me. Basically, i would love to have a wood fired grill that can cook 20 burgers, steaks or chicken pieces. Have the back and bottom lined with fire brick. Have a grate about half inch or 1 inch above the fire brick to ensure ash does not snuff out the embers. I will have off to one side a chimney style starter for the wood where the embers will fall and then i can grab what i want. I will also have another chimney to hold mass amounts of lump to be lit. haha
thats my goal.
