What are the importance of bricks and baffles in your wood fire, and what purpose do they serve?
Although more durable to a normal brick, the fire bricks within your wood fire will eventually break down over time. If you notice large cracks resulting in your brick being in a number of pieces - it is time to replace it. This is because heat from your firebox is now able to escape from your fire - meaning not only is your fire inefficient, but the high temperatures the sides of your fire is experiencing, means it is susceptible to damage.
A baffle can be made from a range of different materials - steel, cast iron, firebrick, ceramic fiber board. And because your baffle is exposed to such intense and prolonged heat, eventually the baffle will need to be replaced. This is normal in the life of a wood fire.
