    Mine is built right INTO the ground, with the top stones of the pit being level with the ground. No rocks or bricks on the bottom of the pit, just the clay that's there naturally.......

    Okay Scotty so your "to-do" list is getting longer. When you show up here to build my outdoor hearth like fishingpol, you're gonna have to make me one of these too :) I live on a vertical acre of slate so thanks to Sandy a lot of it got crushed by falling trees and broke off, I'm surrounded by A LOT of nice building materials, just lack skills and a handy hubby ;)

    I gotta stick to the woodstove threads here, I'm jealous of all you guys here that build stuff! I can't get my hubby to change a light bulb!

    On the cooking rectangle - I've been pondering raising the height of the sides, making the length a tad shorter, and blocking off the top half of the side facing the open pit to retain more heat.
