    Greetings fellow burners. Starting this month TSC has Ecobricks on sale for $2.99 a pack. They are the NEW bundle of six slightly larger bricks (21lbs) and not the old 24lb eight brick packaging.

    Regards,
    Littlalex

    I bought some of what I believe are the eco-bricks last week from TSC on-sale for 2.99/ea. They were 24# packages with 3 bricks per pack. Not sure if they're the exact same thing, but they were made in KY. They burn great!

    BeerBelly, I have been mostly just adding one brick with some wood in there. If I end up tossing a not-so-seasoned log in there, evening things out with these bricks has really helped for me. I did throw two in N-S side by side with some small stuff on top and they did pretty well that way also.

    Thanks.....I bought them for the cold nights where I'd like to get longer burn times, but not sure how many to throw in at once.

    But if your going to stuff the stove make sure you pack them close together. Depending on your stove and how much air flows in, left too far apart they will burn very hot, sometimes too hot (In my limited experience.).

    The large bricks three to a pack suck and this year I dread using the ones I have.
