Hi! I'm Mark Sullivan for Expert Village and today, we are going to learn how to build a barbecue pit. So now we will continue digging the hole into the planet earth so that we can have a fire pit. This is a primitive style of fire pit but for a guy like me, it is just about right. So we are going to dig a hole right in the earth and now some people would like to put or some people prefer to put a steel plate in the bottom of their fire pit so that it reflects the heat back up. I prefer not to so that we have the option of cooking things in the ground and it is kind of this way really a pretty primitive feel. We can sit around the fire and you know we can discuss and confer on important matters like guys do. Okay I think that is just about deep enough for a fire pit.
