My favorite idea would be to dig a hole but I have a feeling the landlord would kill me.
Not a hole in the ground but as close as I could get:

Yes, my whole grill was custom made.

What's the process to cleaning out the fire pit? I didn't see any doors or trays.

1. Well for one thing the height of the cooking grate is completely adjustable.
2. You don't have to bend over close to the ground when using it.
3. It's a whole lot cooler than a OTS.

Just scoop it out with a dust pan when the ashes cool.

Not really necessary. Have had mine for several years never a problem...

Thanks for the post. Still looks good after several years. Let me ask, how do you go about adding wood if you are going to be cooking for an extended period? Just put splits on top and adjust the grate as they ignite? Or set them off to the side and let them cook down a bit.

Depends, if you need an extended cook, spend some extra time building your coal bed. You only want to cook over a coal bed. If you do need to add wood, yes do it over on one side not directly under your meat.

I have seen these the last couple of summers at some Costcos, don't remember which store. If OP wants to be a good guy(of course) get the SKU # off the receipt and post it here so others can call thier local Costco to see which Costcos are carrying the grill.
