Hi! I'm Mark Sullivan for Expert Village and today, we are going to learn how to build a barbecue pit. So now you have to take into consideration your audience because this is going to be a social area. So many things at this point you have to take into consideration. You have to take into consideration the prevailing winds. Where does the wind usually blow from? Here it generally blows from the south to the north so I am feeling it coming in that exact same way so I want the smoke to go away from my audience generally. So with that in mind, first I am thinking that we place the grill in some kind of position like this and then also I have to take into consideration my environment, as far as my neighbors. Do I want my neighbors to be viewing my private gatherings with my friends? So that was one of the reasons for the location here. So take into consideration the wind, if any ashes were to fly out do you have a wooded area that is going to catch fire or something like that? So this is time for some thought about how you are going to position your audience so I think we are going to position it something like this.
