Sometimes we use the firebricks for higher temperature cooks in the 350 to 500+F degree range. Depending on the cook, here is a suggestion. Preheat the bricks as well as the BGE to the desired temperature range by sitting the brick's spaced on edge first. You will use less fuel to heat up the bricks and the BGE, and when your ready, use a thick leather glove to maneuver the bricks as you wish them for the cook. Flat or a combination for drip pans or pizza stones.
IMO when you preheat em flat the fire has a harder time building momentum.
Try it and see...Cheers..C~W
(BTW..this also cleans the bricks better)
