They form the second ring of wood.
This is an impression of what kind of logs I mean for surrounding the inside and outside of the circle.

1) set up 15 branches in a pyramid form, within the center of the pit.
2) Put the Dried grass within the center of the wood.

How to extinguish the fire?
There are three methods:
A) let it burn until its burnt out.
But stay with it until it does.
B) Toss 3 buckets of water at the base of the pyramid of wood and wait until the smoke is gone.
C) In extreme situations: Use the Extinguisher.
THE two pieces of oil BARREL:
Hinge them together with METAL hinges.
Put two chains on each side.
Put big pieces of wood into them, in the form of a pyramid.
Then put the grid over the half you use to barbeque...
When properly done, This is the result.
