    Default Open Pit designs?

    Thinking about building a barbeque on my inlaws back patio. Anyone seen any plans / pictures / threads? I am thinking a brick deal with natural gas burners for grilling and a second grate for making a charcoal fire if desired.

    Totally open to ideas / suggestions, i am at step 1 in the planning phase.

    I might consider using gas for lighting, but I'm not up on using it for grilling.

    I'd just browse the web and take little features from each design and make it your own. I'm excited to see what you come up with!
    I wish I could help out, but I've never done one....

    I would also browse the books at Lowe's and Home Depot for ideas. There are a ton of ideas out there. Use your search engine. Please post pictures as you move forward.
