Firebricks and Stones

Two quick questions:
1) People recently have been talking about using two pizza stones during indirect cooking (or cooking pizzas) to even out the heat more - do you just stack the two stones or is there something between them to provide spacing?[p]2) I have seen a lot of posts and recipes that involve using firebricks in various ways. What exactly are these bricks and what type of store would I find them in (basically, where do I go and what do I as for? :) )[p]Thanks!


  • JeffreyK,[p] Yes, just stack the stones. Firebricks are tan bricks that line fireplaces. Best place to get them is your local brickyard. They come in two thicknesses, full and "split". I use splits in my BGE. TimM has pictures of them on his site. Check it out.[p]MikeO
  • JeffreyK, concur with Mike O. Check the local brickyard or fireplace store. Should cost you about 70 to 80 cents. [p]VaNole[p]

    <p />JeffreyK, I have a medium and use 4 bricks - I believe that for a large, 5 fit better.[p]
