Newb about to build cinder block pit i

Joined Aug 17, 2016
Hi, I'm George (girl) and I live in the Texas Hill country. I moved here with great expectations of buying a fancy smoker but I never got around to it. But I just came into a job lot of cinder blocks so I figured I'd build a pit :) I've got some questions about safety so if you could point me in the direction of where to ask my questions, i'd be most appreciative. I probably won't interact greatly around here but i'll be stalking from the sidelines learning all I can from all ya'll with a ton of experience. I appreciate your time with any help you might give me and can't wait to finally dive in and smoke something. Oh also, after all my other projects, I'd like to get into cold smoking too :) Thanks guys !
