Concrete Block BBQ Pit

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm new to the forum & to smokin so first of all, Hello...

I got a bunch of Concrete Block left over from a job & I want to turn it into a bbq pit. I have found a few ideas on the web, but none of them really explain it. Any ideas would be appreciated. I want something large enough for the whole hawg. But something that can also be used for just a few items. I would only use charcoal or wood as fuel and I want to build it as a permanent fixture in the backyard. I understand that concrete doesn't do well at high heats, so I intend to line it w/ firebrick, but like I said I'm new to all of this & know ZERO. I have experience in stone masonry & have put the decorative stuff on fireplaces, but the actual fire box we always left up to another contractor, which was concrete lined w/ fire brick. Thanks in advance for any help or ideas.

Here is what I have found so far...

Nothing like free bricks get started.

A long time ago, I had some plans, but during the years of nonuse, they found the file 13 can I am sure. I hope the above links help some. Some on the 2nd link looked pretty interesting.
