I have exhausted my internet research skills and have to ask you fine folks..
What is your take on fiberglass insulation? I found 3 examples of use in "hot" smokers, but really no hard facts or concerns. Lowe's sells a non faced, formaldehyde free, R30 insulation and everything I've read from the manufacturer and fire/heat rating sites is that something like this could handle up to 850 deg. but I still concerned about toxins and breakdown.
My build is a upright freezer and the inside metal panels are a fairly heavy stainless, I don't believe the temps would exceed 350- 400 max. I'm going with a propane burner and don't see how this could really cause a problem. I wanted to run this past you folks for your opinion and/or maybe something I might be missing. Thanks fer yer help, BK
