Disregard my question everybody. As well, I can answer a few of the other questions posted previously here as well below. After doing a Google search, I found out that Home Depot also sells a Frost King hot water heater blanket that fits up to a 60-gallon hot water tank and has a rating of R-10.

I don't see any problems using it for that purpose. Now, I am by no means a professional with this product, so this is just my "amateur" opinion!!

The product is not for outdoor use.

Can you use it on gas hot water heater and not catch it on fire?

Yes. As long as you do not get it within a couple inches of the flue pipe up on top and leave an opening around the burner access like the instructions show you will be fine.

I would be concerned that the high heat of the smoker would melt the plastic cover.

didn't fit
my Rheem water heater is 48 inches tall and 19 inches wide across the top. I didn't measure circumference. This blanket didn't fit so I laid it out lengthwise and cut it into three sections to wrap my water heater. Luckily my water heater is in the middle of my mobile home accessible through a removable wall shelf unit, so it's in no real danger of exposure to exterior walls. The kitchen on one side, the laundry room behind it and next to it the central heater/air conditioning furnace. So after a little DIY I got it around the heater in 3 sections leaving the dual thermostat panel doors exposed.

Easy to install, came on time. Plenty of adhesive tape to complete the wrap.

Needed a cover that was slimmer than others due to the tight space in my water heater closet. This was 2 inches thick, versus 3 inches. It threaded nicely between the water heater and the wall of the closet. Good quality tape for attaching to the water heater.
