i have an outdoor BBQ. the sides are cinder block and the bottom is 6" concrete. will i need firebrick on the sides?
I would recommend it...over time you will see cracking and spalling(flaking off) of the concrete otherwise...maybe not so much with the block if they are cinder block as opposed to concrete block but a good idea nevertheless as it will lengthen the life of your barbeque...fire it slow too as there will be a lot of moisture in there

I figure the 1-1/4" splits will fit onto my grilltop better than whole bricks. I'm thinking 6 splits for the grilltop and another 2 on the top rack. That will give me about a 12-1/2"x16-1/2" cooking surface and still give me enough room to get the pizza onto the grill easily, at least that is what I'm hoping.
How long will the stones take to get up to heat? An hour or so?
