I have a New Braunfels offset smoker (maybe a Black Diamond. It has the warming tray on the firebox, and weighs at least 150lbs and doesn't have the upside down U "frame", just four legs that bolt in at an angle to the cooking chamber) that I picked up off of Craigslist a couple of weeks ago. Has anyone ever lined the cooking chamber with fireplace bricks, or ceramic tiles? How about getting a few pizza stones at a restaurant warehouse, and cutting them to fit the chamber. I'd imagine that it would really help with the heat retention. Any comments, or pictures would be greatly appreciated.
I just joined this forum the other day, because I found so many people were really helpful, and gave detailed answers. I also found other forums to be kind of snobbish. I am also quite impressed with the lengthy threads on various topics.
Thank you in advance for sharing your knowledge, and have a great day.
