I don't have a heat loss problem anymore, now that I'm using a second hand gas stove! It's already insulted and double wall! Simply remove metal between oven and bottom drawer and away you go! Let it rain, snow, wind, whatever! Charcoal goes into bottom drawer.

Mark, and what certain guage stainless? Yeah I can roll it on my slip roller to fit exact between the spacers and the roundness of the firebox. although stainless isn't great for welding on I couldplace a few tack welds if needed to keep it in place. I'm gonna pick up some 1.5" firebricks too for the bottom. My slip roller is pretty small so i could probably on roll 13 guage at best. Since stainless is harder it might have to be thinner than that.

Ever consider pearite?
We oven builders use it with portland to make insulating concrete.
It is very light and absorbs very little moisture (also used in potting soil for added "volume" and helps hold air)
Just my .02...

You would of course have to line the pearlite with something to hold it in place or protect it.
Back to the discussion of the "double wall".
