Hate to be my usual stupid self, but where do you get fire bricks? Can you fined them a like Acme Brick outlets? They look like concrete blocks, but my guess is they are not. [p]Also do those of you who use them only use them when cooking indirectly?[p]Thanks, Frank

    Franco,[p]Fire bricks can be found at a place that sells bricks. I found mine at a local chimney shop. They are usually not at a Lowes or Home Improvement store, at least not at my local store. There are a few different sizes, i think there is a 1 inch, 1 1/2 inch, and 2 inch, get a couple of each, and I paid about a buck a piece for mine. I use mine for cooking indirectly, put 2 flat on the grate and two on edge, making a "U" on the grate, then place the drip pan on them with a second grill placed on the top of this. Take a look at TimM's web site or Gfw, they both have pictures of their setups. I also use them to make a makeshift second grill by putting 3 on edge on the bottom grate, putting the food on that grate, then placing my other grate on top of the bricks making a 2 tier setup. Hope this helps, holler back if you need more information.[p]Troy
  • Franco, Menard's carries them...about 6 bricks for $11 I recall. They are in a box in the fireplace area - not out in the yard. ^oo^~
