Boot stirrups or platforms near the edge of the pit to kick up and warm your feet would be nice. Liquid smoke dispenser would put it over the top.
Horned made a fire pit for me a few weeks ago for my wife bday present. I cannot say enough about how awesome they are. Thanks again Horned. She loved it.
Pics of wife in front of fire pit?
Just stumbled across this thread thanks to the Firepit thread just started in CYHMWT.
Horned, that is fantastic work. As soon as I need to replace my firepit (or win the lottery so I can buy my ranch, which would need it's own pit), I'm going to PM you.

My dad turns 70 in February. I may be PMing you soon for a custom version of that $200 one you've been posting.
He just finished up my pit. Looks amazing in pictures. If anybody is driving from Houston to Austin this week and has a truck, I'll buy you some beers if you'll pick it up for me. Or if you don't want to hang out with me, I'll give you some money for your troubles.
How about you post the pics.
Just had Horned send me to mock up. This is going to be badass.
Can vouch for Horned and his work. Got one for my brother for xmas. Turnaround was quick and the pit came out great.
Is anyone going to post some $#@!ing pics??
Why would I buy a pic?
Damnit this weather is pissing me off. Wanted to drive down this weekend since I finally have some free time, but I don't want to spend 6 hours driving in the rain.
Sorry for the delay in pictures, but didn't have a photobucket and had to borrow the womans. Very impressed with the fire pit, and highly recommend if you're on the fence. Forgot to take pics during my first trial run, but here are pics of the pit at Horned's shop.
That's awesome. My current fire pit needs to rust through faster.
Just picked up the pit. Horned does great work. I opted for the thicker metal.
No, that's not a mistake. I chose 1837 instead of 1836 because that's the year that side of our family came to Texas.
I think that it says "Starts building BBQ pits but doesn't finish them"
Here is some other stuff I've done recently.
I love that Freedom Isn't Free one. I've started seeing some similar stuff on facebook/instagram.
You should do some Come And Take It and Don't Tread On Me stuff.
Great work. I second the CATI and DTOM stuff. I'm going to go soak my fire pit in some salt water.
They have a dog name Water? cool.
Blown away by the pics on this thread. The dog dish holder is $#@!ing epic. You're not charging enough for your product, my friend.
That sign is making my OCD go crazy. Why u no center?
You make some truly badass stuff. I have a concrete fire pit that needs a cover so I can let the fire burn out at the end of the night (or so my wife will stop making me put the fire out because there is no cover). I may have to get you to build me one.
Didn't notice it until after I cut it, but it's just a piece to put on the wall at the shop. Thought twice before posting it here but said screw it.
I can definitely build you a cover for your pit. If it's just for putting the fire out I can do Aluminum so it's not too heavy (not sure the size of your pit).
I think steel is the way to go on it. It has fire brick inside a concrete surround and gets super hot when we have several inches of coals spread out in the bottom. I would think it gets hot enough to warp aluminum. Fire pit is 4' diameter. I am also thinking about a separate cooking rack that is removable to go over it. I will draw some stuff in CAD and see if I can make up my mind on what I want. Will PM when ready to get mock up going.
I couldn't find a better link.
Horned, you finally gave me the reason to register. Been lurking for years. I'm in the same boat as Longhorn Al. My Father in Law is turning 70, and I'd like to get a firepit for him. Would you be able to do something similar to LongHorn Al's except include some Texas Ranger stuff; maybe the ranger badge or something in addition to all the other Texas stuff you already did?
