interior chimney questions


The issue is that I can't get behind the chimney to insulate the wall or the pipe. I would like to insulate the space, I'm just trying to figure out how to go about it. What i could probably do is take out a brick or two, blow in some insulation behind the chimney and throw some insulation around the pipe. What do you think?

I wonder if you could start a piece of foam insulation on the pipe outside of the wall then push it back behind there on the pipe?

I thought about that but i think the hole the pipe is going through is too small.I really want to insulate the whole space not just the pipe...
