Step 1: Hole
Dig a hole about half the blocks height about 2". I dug mine about 10" bigger in diameter to get my base. Also used a barrel to reference a circle
Step 2: Level
Now level out the edges on wear you plan on putting your blocks.
Step 3: Gravel and Blocks
Lay just a handful of rocks down around wear you plan on putting your blocks. I used a barrel to reference my circle this pit is ten blocks around. When stacking blocks I set my ontop of eachother to stagger them. Brush off dust and debree from top of block before placing them.
Step 4: Drainage Hole
Now with a post hole digger dig a 20" hole in center of pit and fill with drainage rocks and with extra rocks pour at bottom of pit. After that layer the bottom with any types of rocks I used lava rocks because they hold heat we'll don't used earth rocks they tend to break and explode.
Step 5: Enjoy
Pick up a 6 pack and enjoy.
