I've attached a pic but it's pretty washed out.
I just bought 4 additional bricks &:
1. placed 2 of them on the back bricks
2. Cut the 2 side bricks down to size for the sides with a masonry blade on my chop saw
3. Added the scraps to fill in the back wall & laid a piece of angle iron (from H. Depot) across the back bricks in such a way that the side bricks hold them in place.
(Makes top loading easier/neater, allows you to bank more coal in & prevents coal scraps from wedging behind the bricks. If you look at the pic below, I have coal banked almost 1/2 way up the new layer of brick in back)
Happy New Year to you too!
