Tiling a cinder block fireplace with metal support bracket


I am working on tiling my fireplace and I have a few questions/problems.

1. There is a 3 inch metal support bracket at the top of the fireplace opening. How might I go about tiling this surface? (see picture)

2. The surface of the cinder block is very uneven. The blocks at the bottom stick out about an inch farther than the rest of the wall. Is it ok to even out this big of a gap with thinset mortar?

Any advice is appreciated.
