Hi! I'm Mark Sullivan for Expert Village and today, we are going to learn how to build a barbecue pit. So we are going to use just a bed of recycled pea gravel to level our blocks, our concrete blocks. Now you can use sand for this, you can use just dirt. We are just using gravel because the rock is really more permanent. Okay now I am going to walk on this gravel to tamp it down and feel the level of it and kind of move it around. Okay now we are ready to check our level once again.
