Obviously, there are several issues to be addressed. For gravity, I've used an angle of sufficient strength and stiffness at the head with sufficient bearing at the jambs. Most of the contractors I've worked with seemed to prefer this method because they can cut the slot for the angle and then drive the angle in. The angle is secured to a grouted cell with epoxy anchors. For out-of-plane loads, I've used everything from strongbacks to cutting the surface of the CMU to achieve the required strength. The final question of the in-plane load has not generally governed for openings of this size, but, of course, it depends.
