Unbelievable Heat Retention. (pics)

Several of my recent butt cooks have taken forever, so I started my most recent 8lbs butt ridiculously early.  As luck would have it, it finished up well ahead of schedule.  I pulled out the foil, cooler, and beach towels, but added two fire bricks that sat on a 500 degree BGE for 15 minutes.  7 hours and 42 minutes later I was absolutely shocked to find the internal temp was at 140 degrees.  Just wanted to share the use of the firebricks to anyone who was looking for a solution for extended heat retention.  My cousin just cooked two 8lbs butts that went 19 hours.  I'm learning there can be a tremendous amount of variation in cook times with butts.
