For used firebrick, try to find out how they were used before. Bricks from a fireplace are probably low or med duty which is what you want. Bricks from a kiln may be high duty. You don't want those.
Check out this Brick Primer

As to the Spit roasting thing, I think most people just put the roast in a pan. I imagine the amount of fat dripping onto the hearth could be a concern even if you could rig it up. There was a discussion about this recently

Hope it doesn't snow too early in Pittsburg!
