You'd have to look into the specifics, but it's a very traditional technique, so I know there's a way it works. I, however, went with the blanket, so I'm not sure.

My first oven was insulated with sand. just typical play sand or the kind you find on the beach. I did put a sheet of aluminum foil over the parged bricks followed by a 2-3" concrete cladding. I then built the walls around the dome and poured sand in. Finally covered the whole thing with another layer of concrete to enclose the sand. Probably a good idea to fire the overn before closing it up to give any humidity in the sand a chance to evaporate.

Worked well for me.

Regards, Tony.
