I need 2 inch thick fire brick, does anyone know where to get any? I've tried every store locally and all I can find is 1/1/4 and 2/1/2 inch thick

Are you looking to just replace the ones you have or get bigger ones?

I am looking to get thicker ones, mine are currently 1/1/4, I want 2 inch so that I can make them flush with the grate, as you know, the 1/1/4 ones leave a lip for ash to build up at

Check Home Depots website. I just purchased 2 boxes (12 bricks).. Free shipping to home.
The only problem was one box had all 6 bricks cracked in a million pieces (thk's to UPS handling)and the 2nd box fine.
HD made good on it, had the replacements shipped to my local store with no problems....
Was~$27.00 / box.

Get an inexpensive cardon blade, (they are used to cut steel as well), for a table saw and set the angle to match the "V" shape of you fire box and snip the corner of the 2 1/2" thick bricks...or just leave 'em be ;)

Well I can't leave them alone cuz then they won't fit lol and I don't have a table saw, and I think even if I did that would be to much of a hassle, more than its worth

The shipping is in the price. Your local brickyard would have got about $25 for ten full size bricks.
