Goin a little Fire Brick Crazy!

edited 1:41PM in EggHead Forum
I was perusing the forum last night when I came across a post by Mickey T, in which he spoke of using a split on the top of his egg to regulate his temp. The wheel just wasn't good enough, he needed a fire brick to handle the job! I wasn't surprised a bit because anyone who reads this forum knows that the first thing you do when you get your egg is to go get yourself a stack of fire bricks! There's nothin handier in the world than a fire brick. If just one N.Y. Giant had brought a fire brick to the super bowl...well, things would have been different.
So I got to thinking....we eggsters are gonna take over the world, no doubt. So what's that world gonna be like?
Ah, my computer keeps crashing. What should I do?...smack it twice on the side with a fire brick.
Wobbly table? one fire brick under leg.
Scuba diving don't need to buy the weight belt; get some fire bricks and..
Mae West that a fire brick in your pocket or are ya just glad to see me?
Want to make a quick million? fire brick
So I was listening to some Jethro Tull and... nah, too easy
Teaching your kid good values...the early eggster gets the fire brick
A many eggsters does it take to change a light bulb? One to screw the bulb and three to get the fire bricks..I didn't think that was funny either.
Stand up comedian....there were these two nuns and a fire brick
Watching the Sopranos... we don't do cement shoes no more, just two in the head and a couple fire bricks!
And finally, Grandpa Eggster tucking in the little eggsters... but the third little pig that built his house out of fire bricks was safe from the big bad wolf and lived happily until Grandpa Eggster showed up with a bag of lump and the town had some excellent BBq for a week!! The End.

    Dr. Seuss, and ya know what.. Our ancestor's were nuts too. Seem the deep sea divers, scrounging thru all the old shipwrecks from the 18th century dug out the old iron stoves used in the galleys..Guess what..inside were firebricks...heeeyaaa.
    True..I kid you not..Its in our blood now. But you can use other gimmicks as well. dual pizza stones fit nicely. FB's are a whole lot cheaper and tossable.
    Yaa..The world would stop if not for FB's Maybe someday we can recycle em into energy fuels...! In the meantime..good bread, nice indirect cooks, nice pizza, etc.
    Cheers and tnx for the laughs...

    Dr. Seuss says "I wasn't surprised a bit because anyone who reads this forum knows that the first thing you do when you get your egg is to go get yourself a stack of fire bricks!"[p]I've had my Egg for almost two years, and I still don't own any fire bricks. When I want to cook indirect, I use my pizza stone.
