    Where can I get them? I tried reg bricks and they keep falling in the fire box.
    That is the split reason for thinner. Most any big box store should have them or any fireplace supply or store. They would have a saw to split them. Keep in mind: you only want them on 3 points (not 4)....

    always the party pooper here..

    never had a problem with regular bricks, fwiw (pavers, actually).

    (in the left rear, under the plantains)

    as a yankee, i can't see buying no special brick when i gots a pile of other'ns

    and the only time i bother with foil is when they are crushing duck

    Stike, for some reason the 3 reg bricks that I tried will not stay in place on top of the fire ring. They keep falling in.

    I had to play around a bit too, mine kept falling into the fire box, ended up balancing the bricks in the "dips" on the fire ring. One thing I did find during cooking a spatchcocked chicken it that I need to trim the bricks down just a bit. The upper dome did seal up against the lower dome, and I could see smoke weeping out between the gasket. Easy fix, just use a chisel and knock the edges off the brick. Good Luck!
