    A:  Yes, as long as the bricks do not come into direct contact with the food, you can use these inside of your smoker fire box.

      A:  I would say that they should be able to be used for heat retention. Considering they are in my very hot burning wood stove. However I am not sure if they are meant to be stacked loose. In the stove they are in a frame. Your call. They fit right into the frame.

        Answer This Question

        A:  When installing Rutland Fire Bricks, we recommend using Rutland's Castable Refractory Cement (item #600 or #601). If you plan to adhere these bricks to a metal surface, Rutland offers a Black Furnace Cement that would work but requires a heat cure (item #64).

Rutland Products Castable Refractory Cement is the best option for gluing and mortaring bricks for outdoor applications, once allowed to dry for 24 hours then it will be as hard as brick and can be exposed to temperatures up to 2,200-degrees F.

                              A:  Those bricks are really hard. You need a diamond saw blade to cut them. They are brittle and break easily though. If you are making a kiln I would put the fire brick on the bottom and use the Rutlands everywhere else.

                                      A:  They were slightly thicker than 1.25, which caused an issue when placing into my woodstove insert. Had to chisel/file a couple down to size. Didn't have this issue last time I ordered these years ago.
