Mirage Stone Outdoor Fireplaces W/ BBQ
 
Costco sells the Mirage Stone Outdoor Fireplaces W/ BBQ. Looks pretty nifty, no mortar, interlocking joints, and not too expensive. 2 variations on the same theme. The one mentioned above seems to have firebrick insides and a 3 position shelf, not unlike the churrasco setup, the other type is open on all 4 sides with metal screen, although you only have one side that actually opens for messing with the fire. This one says it is Lp gas, but I don't see why you couldn't burn wood as well. Seems like a nice easy addition to a patio build. Doesn't seem to need a special foundation either. Follow the link to the manufacturer, who seems to only sell to costco for a nifty video on the assembly.

Good Luck.

Google to the rescue:

The assembly pictures,

The video.

I don't know if it would work with wood. You would certainly need a stronger grate.

Upon further searching, they do have a wood version, and it's a couple of hundred bucks less. Still, it's in the same price range as the Forno Bravo fireplace, which is made of real refractory material.

Are there any recomended dry stack kits other than this one?

I use and recommend the rumford plan. You can buy just the throat and damper, and build your own firebrick firebox, which is much easier than a pompeii dome, or you can buy all the pre-cast components
