While I agree that is very simply solvable, the constraint of his particular problem requires a random distribution of the grains, so unfortunately a simplification like that would not work.

comment Tiling Problem Solutions for Various Size “Dominoes”
I actually just discussed my problem quite a bit with someone and we agreed backtracking may be the only way to hit the desired probabilities while retaining a random distribution of the grains. My thought is, following the placement algorithm described above, when the (1x2) and (2x1) grains become difficult/impossible to place in the remaining spots, I will attempt to re-order the problem neighbor grains to a certain degree. I'll have to try it but I think it might work. Thanks!
