Give me all the pros and cons and how to's. Im planning on building a new pit. 20in OD by 3ft with a fire box. My first question, should i go with a square firebox or cylinder? My 2nd question, i would like to build this out of quarter inch pipe but locally i can only find 5/16. Let me here all your opinions, thanks.
1) I like the looks of a sq fire box. And it gives you a little more area.
but... round is cheaper and less labor.
2) Why you sweating the extra 1/16"? If that is what you can get, get it. It will be a little heavier, but should also retain heat a little better.
