I'm having trouble locating a small amount of 1/4" plate in my area. I have however, been able to locate 1/4" diamond plate (steel not aluminum) What's the difference as far as welding and actual functionality? Would it be a good substitute?

So diamond plate fell through. Next question. I can get a 4'x10' sheet of 11gauge for $120, OR I can get a 4'x7' sheet of 1/4" for a little over $160. If I went with the 11 gauge I'd do a double wall firebox with rockwool in between. So, the question is, they're both the same cost wise, which is better? dual wall insulated, or single wall but thicker?
Keep in mind this will get no use in the winter time. I'll be keeping my Smoke Vault for that. Plus my cold smoker rig.
