How would I go about putting Granite tiles over an existing fireplace made out of brick? I would like to wrap the entire fireplace but I'm wondering if the heat /cool cycles will loosen the tiles. What kind of Thinset or adhesive should I use? How should I fill in the grooves on the old brick?

Check with the manufacturer on the thin set/ahesive. But as far as application goes, I would attach wire mesh with tap cons to the brick, then trowl over that. Bob

Just a quick note. Make sure that brick is clean and solid. No loose crap to come off. It may seem to go without saying, but to miss it would be bad.
