    A:  They may turn black, but if u have a hot enough fire they will burn off the black themselves.

      A:  They will turn black . Best bet is a cast iron fire back . It is a metal panel with a decorative imprint that goes against the rear of the fireplace. It also reflects heat into the room.

                                A:  You probably could. Consider that the freeze/thaw cycle eventually destroys everything. Allow for water draining away.

                                  A:  No, these bricks are not insulative and so will not insulate the wood from high heat.

                                    A:  No.

                                      A:  No, do not take the chance. You could use these against plywood for an outside fire pit or fireplace but definitely not for inside your home. These bricks are for installation against the back firewall of a fireplace or insert. Any plywood with a hot fire could definitely burn.
