    Went for a rustic feel on the fire pit. American Granite thin wall stone (2 ton), Red fire brick (75 units), 1' deep footing, a lot of mortar.

    What do you guys think?

    I've yet to do a patio this season without a fire pit for some reason, must be "the new thing".....

    Questions:

    1) If it's too deep, how does anyone on the patio stay warm? I would think the fire needs to radiate outwards a bit.

    2) Is there a vent for air to enter from the bottom? Without one, I'd assume the fire suffocates and causes excessive smoke.

    Not to be arrogant,

    but it appears to be a cleaning nightmare. How on earth is one supposed to clean it with ease??????? :)


    I dunno. This firepit craze bothers me a little. Its my opinion that if you're not a stone mason - then don't do 'em.

    It looks like the well opening from the movie "The Ring" LOL. This is a prop for "The Ring 3". Looks kinda deep imo. Now all they need is a nice patio to go along with it.$$$$

    The more I look at the pictures, it does looks huge. It's only 2' above the grade of the patio. They want to cook over it, so I made it a little taller than usual and have a false bottom (crushed stone).

    The Ring 3, yeah kind of, with the fog in the background....:eek:

    What do you cook on? Or I should say...what do you hang the grill on? I would think to insert some rebar pieces that protrude inwards a bit.
