From a stove safety/effectiveness standpoint I think the way they are is fine. Your stove wall is protected from direct contact with hot coal by the air gap anyway, or you could just fill each gap with coarse sand & save yourself allot of work.


But if he cuts them they won't (fall in) when he cleans the stove out or shakes it down to much.

I would not back fill behind the brick with beads or sand. It will tend to push the brick out into the fire box as it settles.
