Fireplace doors on rough-brick fireplace?


First off, I just bought my first house after a decade of renting. I'm a DIY guy so I expect to be around here fairly often.

Anyhoo, the house has a wood-burning masonry fireplace and I'd like to install these doors. The problem is the brick is "rough cut" and does not provide a flat mounting surface. It's not as jagged and uneven as stone, so I'm hoping I can still use this "overlap" style door and not need to get a custom-fit "interior" style set.

I figure I can install these as normal, but then use a high-head caulk to seal the area between the door and the brick. Can anyone confirm this will or won't work?

Thanks!

The door comes with fiberglass insulation that fits in channels in the sides and top that will provide a seal between the door and door and the brick.

If you want to know more about installing this door then RTFM:

Thanks for the reply. I think my question may have been unclear. I've read the manual and am aware of the insulation. What I'm concerned about is the fact that the brick is not flat and so the outer edges of the frame will not sit flush against the brick. I know stone fireplaces can't use this kind of door because if the lack of a flat mounting surface. My question is just how flat does it have to be?
