some plans for a good design. I do not plan to cook whole hogs or anything that large . I have 70 cinder blocks and all the brick I would need. Any help would be appreciated or just some pics of different designs..

In my experience, cinder block does not hold up to a prolonged fire longer than one season or year. We have to replace them every year. The mortar is the weakest link. If anyone knows of a good source for bricks than can stand the prolonged heat, let me know.

In this part of the country, there is no fire in the BBQ pit. Only coals. The meat slow cooks at about 250-300 degrees.

Exactly what I am talking about . I am pretty good on my smoker I bought in Franklin TN. It is a steel one with a fire box below and the chamber above and will model my pit from that design after giving it some thought only a tad larger just in case. I never use any more than 300 deg. to cook meat on. I will be buying some fire brick to line the pit and lots of sand below the fire pit to hold the heat in . It will be below the fire pit . I would like to have 2 cooking chambers the ability to close one off and use just one of them for cooking faster . Fast for me is 8-12 hours , slow is 24 hours or so.
