Looks good, but is the pergola blocking the access door? I have similar setup and want a pergola myself, but installing it would put it right in front of the door accessing the deck.
I've still got the same board on mine after two long pig roasts and several smaller uses between two summers, so you just have to keep the top out of the weather.
Craigslist is an excellent resource for cheap cinder blocks. Some people give them away for free even.
Yeah its could really go either way because I used staples too. I then lined the inside of the chamber with spare flashing, although I don't think it did much.
Very nice build. I built a less complex cinder block pit last year for a couple of pig roasts and it came out awesome. Also, you could probably get away with aluminum flashing for the top plywood if that's any cheaper than the insulation you did use, because wood is a pretty good insulator as it is.

Do you think the table top is thick enough? I actually like how the top looks being that thin. I'd probably only be worried about warping, but that might be independent of thickness.
It looks nice, but the wood selection looks a little thin. Is it very sturdy at those thicknesses? It looks like if it took too much side loading that it could buckle. Nice look and finish, though
