My forum searches didnt turn up any home outdoor fire pit cooking fire pits. I would love to see some ideas you have implemented, this will help me with my own! I I am slowly assembling my outdoor cooking/smore making/late night drinking fire pit. It certainly works as is, but I have much room for improvement. Cook grates, seating and surrounding landscaping, would enjoy seeing what you have. Today at the recycle/scrap yard I bought a cook grate that looks like it will an easy addition to fire pit. The clamp appears to hold well on a 2 1/8" OD pipe. Then it will rotate off the heat and raise/lower. Look forward to your ideas! Just got the images to upload. Question - how far do you wan the grate to extend over the fire. This is a tad short, but I can still add wood to the fire while cooking.
