Hi! I'm Mark Sullivan for Expert Village and today we are going to learn how to build a barbecue pit. I think what we are going to do is go around and set our first course in place, take the first pass on the setting of the bricks and then we will come back and kind of analyze what we've got. Then we'll take a second pass on our first course of bricks so that we can kind of repair it, take out some of the bad ones, check our level, ensure that they are equidistant from the hole itself. Some of them maybe or chipped too badly, we are going to pull off this first course. This is kind of important first row. So we want to make sure the blocks are the same size, they are level and they are spaced properly.
