Here is the way we use HOT BRICKS in our Wood stove:

We found the best way to light HOT BRICKS is to put a fire starter sticks or kindling against the back wall of your stove and lean 3 or 4 Hot Bricks against the back wall over the kindling spaced about 1/2 of an inch apart. Ignite the kindling and allow a fair amount of air to get the fire going in order to build a glowing coal bed (usually 20 or 30 minutes). Next, for a long burn heating fire, spread the coal bed around a bit and carefully add Hot Bricks into the stove with a quarter inch or so of clearance between each brick.  DO NOT OVER PACK STOVE or allow bricks to contact the glass. Close the airflow dampers way down and monitor your chimney temperature.  You want flame but not too much. Experiment with your stove to find the best combination for heat and ambiance.  Enjoy the warmth.

Here is how we use HOT BRICKS in our fireplace:

We found the best way to light Hot Bricks in our fireplace is to put fire starter sticks or kindling against the back wall and lean 4 or 5 bricks vertically against the back wall spaced about 3/4 inch apart over the kindling (step 1).  Next we lean another row of bricks over the spaces between the bricks that are against the wall (step 2).  We slip another fire starter stick between these two rows. Next we lean 2 bricks horizontally over the top of the second row (step 3).  Ignite the kindling, sit back and enjoy the warmth and ambience.
