Does anyone know what the best materials are for constructing your own fire pit, or is it more a matter of aesthetics?
I rather like how brick looks, but wonder if something like solid stone might be a safer option.
I am also curious about purchasing the metal grating that you set atop the pit. Is it available at your local home improvement store, or would a place that sells camping supplies be a better bet?
I like the idea of having a fire pit for cooking and would like to make sure I construct it as safely as possible.
