I’m goi g to use the indispensable tool I think they call it, I’ll get it built and post a picture.

I’ll check it out, never been on reddit and it seems confusing but I’ll give it a look once I have more time to check it out.

That's a lot of good info. I'm glad I got a book referral because a lot of reviews left me nervous. Seems like they feel the dome is the way to go and the barrel design isn't as desirable? I guess adding more pizzas will be better for bigger gatherings. What are your thoughts as far as how close to your house would you want it? I want it out of the way, tucked away, but also want it convenient....
Distance from house is regulated by your city and fire marshall. My neighbor just built a brick bbq and there were strict guidelines about its location in relationship to the house. Firemarshall had to sign off on it.

Well, I poured the slab a few weeks back and been letting it dry. Laid out and squared up thebrick base and then drilled holes in the cement and epoxy’d in some rebar. I plan on using a longer piece too stick in every other cell opening when I pour the concrete in it and full the others with gravel. I’ll run the rebar long and then tie in my concrete top into that. Should be wicked strong. Not gonna mortar the blocks, just stack it and pour it then coat the exterior with some kind of finish. Hopefully weather permitting I get the block finished and laid and poured this weekend and can story forming the counter top

I plan on welding some doors from the leftover angle iron and add wood in the middle. I’m visualizing some neat hinge ideas but if anyone has any ideas and pics I’d love to see them.
