I recently purchased a Royal No.5 and was told that there is probably asbestos insulation in it. I am interested in restoring it to it's original state and plan on roasting in it. Is it harmful to leave the insulation intact, or should I have it removed? If it is removed, what type of insulation can be substituted in it's place? I've looked at the insulation and it appears to be in decent shape. If anyone has any experience with this, I'd appreciate any information!
