And 1" is enough over the vent area as to not allow high temps on the outer layer? Ie: stucco?

Does it matter which kind of chimney you use? Dura tech vs. a single walled type of chimney. I would imagine that the duratech chimney isn't very hot on the outside where a single walled chimney might be a lot hotter.

If you look on page 9 of the install, it doesn't show any insulation. I called FB and they said 1" should suffice, I would maybe to 2-3 along the very top where the vent meets the dome, as that is where the flames lick and hot gases go.

But there are two purposes to insulation, one is heat retention (which really only matters for the dome/cooking area. And the other is safety/touch, which for the right around the metal chimney is of limited value anyway because the chimney gets stinking hot anyway...
