Sorry on top of the fire brick. They are very smooth and fit together perfectly. I would have thought they would be perfect for the cooking surface.

Sure but my fire bricks are not perfectly square,some slightly chipped,just thought that these stone grill stones would be great as they are very smooth and fit in very well. Just don't want it to affect performance?

You wont notice the chips one the oven is fired as everything gets filled with ash anyway.

The other thing too is, if they are thin they will just break as you heave some more firewood in.
