OK, I think I'm hearing that I should stick with my original plans:-)

Can anyone point me in the right direction in terms of where to get a high heat insulating board?

Use the pearlite (or vermiculite) concrete mix. It is very easy and relatively cheap. You will already have the cement for your mortar mix.
