Basically a key-hole design. (Thanks, Joanne)
A few concrete blocks laid up dry. No mortar.



Oak and Hickory fire in the back yard.



Chicken Legs in a Rotisserie Basket in Fire Pit.
Cooking over wood embers, not directly on wood flames.



Basted with 4 TBSP each of butter and lemon juice with 1 tsp of Penzey's Bavarian seasoning and a dash of granulated garlic.

About an hour and 15 minutes. Tender, moist, good, a touch of smoke.

The black frame is Texsport Rotisserie & Spit Grill. Modified to use electric rotisserie on sale at Home Depot.

There is plenty of room for a DO and tripod.

I like that! This spring I'll be starting to set up an area for DO and camp-fire cooking. Something like the one you built would be ideal. Nice job!

I have a simple firepit dug a shovels worth deep, lined with cinder blocks.
Flat paver to set a coffee pot on in one corner and another for DOs. Cookin irons above with chains and hooks. Nothing too fancy but it works ok.

In the summer here in Arizona we then change our coals to 1/4 ice cubes underneath and 3/4 ice cubes on top.

My Son and I are building a back yard open fire cooking pit tomorrow. It will have a brick 'apron', or area in front so I can sit and rest these old bones while I cook.
The pit itself, will be about 6 inches deep, rock lined, then dirt on top of that. Tapered pavers will make the first level of the circle (3.5 feet in diameter), and I will build it up in the back, for a reflector.
I have my cast iron tripod, grill, single posts with cross bar to hang pots from, or when I use the skillets.
Will post up some pics when I get 'er cooking.

My son finished the cooking pit today. I'll be making Mac N Cheese on it tomorrow, the pasta cooking in a Griswold Scotch pot, and the cheese sauce in an old Erie 2Qt kettle.
