There's some stuff for automotive use that folks use on the underbody that acts as a heatshield.

I've seen it used on the undersides of truck cabs to shield the heat of the exhaust.

Looks like it will withstand 500°F as well. Way more than we cook at on UDS'. Another benefit might be temp control during cold weather smoking.
