Fire bricks and temp stability

I've only done two slow indirect cooks and I've used a drip pan as my only barrier on both occasions. I've had great results with the pan and I've even built a double-decker rack with the drip pan attached. My question is, do fire bricks aid in temperature stability? I could invision where they would have a very high specific heat and once heated up would tend to even out temp fluctuations.

    Dr. Seuss, for low/slow cooks I have found the use of firebricks very helpful in maintaining a specific low (170 to 225) degrees over extended periods when doing beef jerky, pulled pork or pulled BBQ beef.
