    I know this isn't a smoker build, but I just wanted to get some feedback from everyone on how my fire pit turned out.

    Cool looking pit, how's it burn?

    Did you put a drain in the bottom? That's a must up here in the PNW. It's a real pita to come out and find the pit full of water!

    I drilled a 5/16" hole at each end for it to drain. The shape of the pit give a very neat looking and well contained fire. Next time I have a fire I will take a couple of pictures.

    I just cut a grate to sit inside, so I can do some open pit cooking.

    Show us the flames!!! And now that you've added the cooking grate, some Q-View too!!'

    The built-in pits we do here have a 4" drain in them!!!!
