Garage I-beam insulation?


I have a steel I-Beam over the garage door opening. How to properly insulate it?

I was thinking about cutting pink styrofoam boards to fit snug into the I-Beam opening. Either leaving an air capsule behind or blow in some insulation. Then painting over with latex paint.

Any thoughts?

Thank you!
