Old School Southern Style Pit

Any suggestions on building the top and end piece? Plywood or metal?

Metal. Not sure whut that large bosomed boy been toying around with. Now why do we need the firebricks on the bottom. Take that course and stick it up on top. That looks a bit too close to the fire. Sweet spot for Texican bohunk mesquite coals shovelers is three feet or thirty six inches above the fire. Just because a guy has nice teats dont make them special...lol. no it sorta does. Notice we dont ever see the other end?

If you want to see the other end, look in the mirror!

That looks cool. I want to dig a whole in my yard and line it with stone for bbq but my wife gives me a mean look every time I pick up a shovel. Maybe I need my own yard.

+1 on lossing the bricks on the bottom and adding some height. I've always ran 3 layer then the grate. Metal for the lid if you can find it.
