On Sunday i did a 13 lb brisket and the fire went 14 hours.

Seems to work, the best i could do before was around 10, maybe 11 hours

I like your firebrick idea! I'll have to give that a try next time.
If it ain't right, don't do it....If it ain't true, don't say it....If it ain't yours, don't take it.
