I helped out with this one back in the early eighties with my dad. It's still cooking some mean briskets. It's was a lot of work for sure. But it's been really rewarding. Started out with just the pit and then before you knew it my oldman wanted some cover.So we closed it in.lol

Awesome Melon ! It is tough but rewarding to see the final project.

Correct Swifty. They are fire bricks. Be sure and get fire resistent mortar for those bricks. The brick joints on the outside is regular mortar. On the fire bricks, we turned 4 inwards (clock pattern, 12, 3, 6 and 9) in case the homeowner wanted to set a grate in there and grill.

I want to say 2. My bro-n-law lives in SA and this is where it is (I'm in Austin) I helped about 3 days when I could. I believe it was 2 though. I think it was about a ton and 1/2 per pallett and this place charged $240 I think.
