I say add an inch of cladding. I have extra cladding on my pompeii (about an inch) and it is not too much for pizza and tapas and it is nice to have the extra retained heat for baking.

If I add an inch of cladding should I also use re-inforcing mesh?, would it then be better to add 3/4 inches of blanket followed by loose vermiculite or vermicuile concrete.

Thanks for all the posts and replies I am ready tp proceed but unsure which is the best option.

1" will not require reinforcement unless you are concerned about cracks, more for aesthetics in which case you would use a fiber reinforced concrete. Any cracks you may get will be covered up by your insulation. General rule of thumb is the more insulation the better. On my barrel I have 3" of Inswool HP (2600F) blanket and 2" of loose vermiculite under a wood enclosure..temperature inside never exceeds ambient.

Thanks everybody for your imput I have gone for I inch + of cladding with a reinforcment sheet, just in case, I will add three inches of banklet then fill the void with vermiculite. Hopefully this will allow my oven to function as I want it to.

You should use the same thing you are using for mortar.
