HELP!!! Fireplace driving me nuts!!

I desperately want to tile out the brass surround on my fireplace, however once I add a backer board and tile over it, the tile will be protruding from the mantle by about an inch= tacky!

So if I remove the brass surround I am left with a big hole between the insert and mantle. Then what? How do I prep this "hole" to be able to tile over it?

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Any help appreciated!!!
