Default Re: 36" oven in Colorado Springs

I think that 3" of CF board is ideal, and IIRC, there is some ratio of effectiveness for vermiculite to CF board. I think it's greater than 2:1 - so, yeah I'd go with 3" of vermiculite + 2" of the board if you can.

FWIW, I investigated the vermiculite fill in my oven house - but the readings I got off the blanket with my IR thermometer when the oven was cranking showed no heat loss. You'll be able to check that yourself as you cure.
