(I hope those are fire bricks, look kind of liker pavers)
Heat your stone (ceramic coated) slowly, these are designed for conventional ovens that heat more slowly than putting on a hot grill.
Since it is ceramic coated, try other tings like fajitas on them!!
Congrats and ENJOY!
Thanks for the tips & help. Yes, they are firebricks. I think they are called splits - 1/2 the thickness of a regular brick. I bought a bunch when I built my stick burner to line the firebox, had 1/2 a box leftover. Got them from Northern Tool - they are made to line the inside of cast iron wood stoves.
