These are the cast iron ones in my new stove.

That is exactly what mine look like.
Gee...that must have a "cute" <snicker snicker> little ummm.....hopper?

Supposedly 50 pound hopper, I can only get a bag + a few scoops in....
Actually...that's not going to be markedly different from my 80lb when it comes down to the way I use it.
I figured 80lbs was great, because it could take 2 bags, which it can, but only if it's pretty much bone dry empty.
So what usually happens is I wait for it to get down below the point where it'll take a bad, and I dump another bag in.
I could dump in a partial bag, but then I've got the rest of the bag on the floor in the living room, or back to the cellar stairs landing, and why bother with that?
Can someone post pictures of the new cast iron firebrick for the 2008 and up models? I am hopeful that I will get my old ceramic bricks replaced by Travis with the newer cast iron type.
My stove is burning so I can't get a pic of my cast iron brick, but here is a link to a supply shop that shows the cast iron firebrick. The one in this picture seems to have a red (brick) coloring to it, but mine are more sandstone colored. Good luck!
Thanks Mike D.
