My reply:

Nice granite stones; i.e. beach cobbles, that is what I would use rather 
than bricks.  The snarky judges of my experience just make take off if you 
failed to document bricks, their manufacture and why you used modern ones 
rather than making some in period fashion just for the purpose.  With beach 
cobbles or rounded river rocks all you have to do is document thier 
occurance in the geographic vicinity of where the dish is set and the fact 
that people did indeed use heated stones for a variety of purposes, i.e. 
keeping thier feet warm.
