Default The end of the winter pit build!! Its DONE!! now for some Q'n

Well its been kind of a crazy road to building my first pit.. started with one design ended up finishing it with a different design... Fabricating all the parts with only a Torch, a stick welder and a grinder.

I did have the tube rolled at the steel company.

Here are the pics enjoy!

No... its not as of right now... it may get insulated down the road depending on the vent issue... if the main vent on the door is enough air... which im sure it will be i will remove the two side vents and probably weld another box around the firebox and insulate it.
