Anyone tried these big salt cooking slabs for heat sinks/diffuser in MES's? Seems like they would stabilize/deflect heat pretty well.

Cranky - question.
What do the heat sinks do for smoking?
How big are the fire bricks and where do get them?
Where do you place them in a 30" MES?
Still just a driver and a three wood between our houses.....

The thermal mass makes recovery faster after opening the doors and also can assist in more even temps.
I use "1/2 bricks" in mine. 1" thick x 4.5" x 9". I buy my bricks from GarTex Masonry Supply on Plano Road. Almost at the intersection of Plano road and 635.
DW, I owe you a visit for sure. Did you download my workbook? PM me if you need the location again.
