I considered it but since the flame never comes in contact with the brick, it seemed reasonable that the pit wouldn't need it.
Also, if you make one like mine make sure you have a chisel and a mallet, there is a lip on every brick that knocks off easily. If you don't you'll wind up off setting them and they take on a flower-like-appearance and the diameter gets smaller with every row.
take care Sooner!
Yeah, I know exactly what you are talking about on the bricks... I have them for my flower beds. I've always wanted a firepit like that, but to see how you used it as a smoker made me even more stoked. I kind of always figured those bricks would be fine, just hadn't seen a firepit I liked enough to see how it was done.
But, again, kudos to you on the setup. It's pretty sweet and it's definitely got my wheels spinning on doing something similar.
P.S. Gotta love BBQ and the SMF's... it's even got a Sooner and a Longhorn playin' nice... Which is HARD to do.
