What Im in the process of building is how Im going to brew outdoors. Im stacking cinder blocks(that Im getting cheap from a local farmer) and building a sort of BBQ pit. Three sides so its easy to add more wood, cinder block bottom so I can just sweep out the ash. Ill could make it small enough that my pot will just sit on the sides. But I think if I put a grill grate across the top and put the pot on the grate so I get more surface area over the flames. Hopefully some pics tomorrow. Im not 100% sure at this point if I will be able to get this hot enough to boil 5 gallons of wort but only time will tell. If it seems like it needs more heat I might try putting a box fan near the fire to add more oxygen. Any thoughts from anyone of if this will work or any suggestions? Ill be using scrap pallets and whatever kind of free wood I can get.
