To go under this lid. :laughing::laughing::laughing:
Custom cover for a home made barbecue pit.
6'-8" wide x 3'-11" deep x 1'-8" high.

Pit is made from 8" block lined with fire brick and will eventually get covered in rock.

Still got to do some bracing and handles and chimney/dampner.
Finish up tonight then go put it in tomorrow am.
Within a couple of hours there will be 50 Boston butts cooking for Saturday's party of ~300 people.:thumbsup:
Yum.

In case you didn't see the dimensions above that's a 6' ruler.

Thanks.

The grill is 3/4"-#9 expanded metal. Came from one of my regional steel suppliers.

The owner sent me a pic of it with the rock work all done. Says it works great.

I'll have to take his word for it since I still haven't tried any of his BBQ.:cry:

Darn. Now I'm hungry.
