firebrick splits what size?
edited November -1
New egg on the way! Tring to get the accessories lined up
and I'm almst there.... just need a little help on what
size firebrick would be most useful in the large egg. Thanks for any help. Really looking fwd to this! Phil
I use 2 - 2X4X8 (approx.)cut in half & 4 - 1X4X8.
I use the half 2X4's to elevate the second grill & the 1X4's for an indirect cook. Pizza stone would prolly be simpler but I never do anything the easy way when I can make it more difficult, just my nature.
they are relatively cheap, buy a few whole (2x4x8) and a few split (1x4x8). i dont own a platesetter, but those that do may not use the bricks at all
NEWEGG, since we don't know where you live let me post yet another alternative. Pictured here is an unused and a well used fire brick which came from Menard's. They measure 4.5 x 9 x 1.25 and come 8 to a box for about $9.00. Don't say you don't need 8 of them as 4 is a nice number and then iffin you think friends will follow your lead in buying BGEs these bricks make "cool" housewarming gifts!!!
The ones I use are twice as thick as these. About a buck each as well. I found them at a concrete supply place when I was purchasing pavers for the new patio. I went with the larger size because the price difference was minimal.[p]Dennis
RRP,[p]These are the size I use. When I do use them, I put 3 on their sides to support a second grate and 3 laid flat on the bottom grate. A drip pan on top is also desireable.
