Fire pit / Grill

The wife said " Pondman!! after this one , if you build or buy another grill or smoker I'm moving my mother in with us. " Well to say the least she got my attention. Not that I don't love my mother- in-law,but fellas I think this could be the last one. Maybe!! Women just don't seem to understand that since the beginning of time man has had a need for fire, smoke, and meat. So here it is. Been wanting to build one of these for a while.Found some retaining wall blocks on sale at Southerlands and few other things to go along with some bricks and stuff I had around the house. I put it together for about 100 bucks. Its a little to hot now. I'll do a post when I fire it up for the 1st time.

Re: Fire pit / Grill

You need to change your name to PITMAN, that is super. If your MIL moves in you can just build yourself a doghouse outside

Re: Fire pit / Grill

Pondman, It's a real work of art! The thing is beautiful. I think you and the misses and your mother in law are going to have many wonderful nights together roasting marshmallows over the pit and discussing all your faults.

Lookin GOOD!

If she's a real P.I.T.A. you could complete the circle,
add a pond liner and turn it into a nice dunk tank
for charity!!

Love to see it fired up!

Re: Fire pit / Grill

Too Funny. The misses just shot my Santa Maria grill down. Might be able to build that though. I can smell the Red Oak now....
