The barbeque pit has been around for ages. Some people claim that barbequing in the pit is better than cooking in the kitchen. 

Barbeque pits came out around 1920. But they only became popular in 1950 when practically everyone owned one. Back in those days, more people had family and friends gathering and big cookouts, but now it’s hard to find time for all of that. But even if you use it once in a while it’s still worth having. 

You might find it challenging looking for a BBQ pit, but the best place to look for them is on the internet. There you can see how to build one from scratch; it’s not as hard as it sounds. 

But before starting anything, be sure to check with your city, if you’re permitted to do so. Some may even require inspections before or after you build it, so be careful. Don’t just start making something in the back of your house. See if you’re allowed to first you don’t want to get in trouble and pay a fine. 

Take some time to research before you go see them. Decide if you want to add electricity or a gas burner because there might be an additional permit that is required, they might even ask you to have the electrical stuff be installed by a professional to ensure safety. 

You’ve got to also decide on how extravagant of a pit you want. Do you want something simple or do you want to go all out? Think about how much you are willing to spend and your needs. There are many optional features that you can have put in; in the end, it’s up to you. There are many things to consider, such as what type of grill do you want, do you need a grill to place the food in, or a place for the fire that is well ventilated. 

There are boundless things to remember, like are you going to make the pit withstand the harsh climates that you may encounter. Think about the type of weather you receive. Think about where you’re going to place it, be sure that it looks good before you start building it. 

If you need any help just look for books and check out the internet. Use all the resources you have before embarking on this big project.
