Fire Bricks...what be those?
Hearing things about firebricks and how to use. Can you enlighten me? What are firebricks, where do you get them, when do you use them?[p]MShark[p]
I have them in several rib cooking adventures of my web site. Link below there are several pics in the MSC pictures section too.[p]They act as a radiant heat shield as does the drip pan or the plate setter or pizza stone. One is about as good as another as far as results go. The setter has the advantage of being one piece. Fire bricks are cheap and hard to find. You won't find them at a local hdw unless they sell fireplaces or wood stoves. Try those places or brick yards. They should cost less than $2.00 ea.[p]Tim

MollyShark,[p]Tim has some great stuff on his site doesn't he? Fire bricks come thick or thin. The pic tim posted show the thin ones - about the same dimensions as a "paver". The others are about as big as a regular brick. Tanker Tim uses terra cotta pots. Others have said not to use a regular brick as there is a chance that they might explode!
MollyShark, here is some actual pics and the specs for real firebricks..Rutland Products. US Stove also makes and distributes a identical product.[p]
Fire Bricks and stuff.
They call them fire bricks because they use them in fire places, among other things. I have 3 thick ones that I use to elevate a second grate and 2 thin ones for buffering a drip pan. They are not difficult to find...some lumber yards carry them, certainly brickyards. I found my source by asking some people at Home Depot. Turns out they were about a mile from my house. The cost 75 cents apiece.
