Default Fire brick

Built an evaporator over the summer and now have to insulate. I have ceramic blanket and 1/1/4" fire bricks .Wondering which is better 1" ceramic blanket and 1/1/4" bricks on the sides or just 2/ 1/4" bricks alone . The evaporator is a 2x4 with straight vertical sides wood fired with auf.

Use both the insulation and the brick. Big difference in the heat lost out the side of the arch.
