    insulating a stick burner

    I have a 2 chamber Lyfe Tyme steel stick burner with a 20" fire box. Uninsulated. Is there anything on the market that I can use to insulate the outside of the smoker and firebox?

    I used Reflectix to wrap the smoker itself. It works fairly well, except the end adjacent to the firebox. Lots of folks say a welding blanket, such as the ones they sell at Harbor Freight, work to insulate the firebox, but they aren't a permanent solution. You have to put them on and takes them off. I haven't used anything for the firebox.

      Done the welding blanket in the past for the firebox. Worked well. I had no need to insulate the grill chamber.

    Try lining the inside with fire proof bricks. They are typically 1 inch thick, so easy to move around and place. No need to attach/mount them, just place them on the bottom and sides (slanted/leaning) of the firebox. If needed, do the same with the food chamber. This will provide you with plenty of thermal mass. Here's a photo (stolen from the Internet) where they have plenty of bricks. Don't need to add that many, but you get the picture.
