Question How best to insulate garage?

Howdy....I'm new to the site and have learned so much already from reading the posts. Last year I put up a 25 x 30 metal building (walls and roof bolt together in 2 ft "arch" sections and then we framed the front with a walk through door and a 16 x 8 garage door. This spring I want to wire the garage (have extention cords running from house currently) and insulate the inside. I've been told the spray on type of insullation would be best. Does this product have a specific name? Or, I'd be open to other suggestions??? Should I insulate first or wire the garage first?

Your input will be appreciated.

Big Al

Just finished my steel 36x54 building- wired first and insulated with r-19 fiberglass bats on walls, blow in attic area- then steeled the interior walls- keep it at 50 degrees constant and turn up when I'm in there, natural gas- last month's bill was only $72 and we've had many below zero days here in the Midwest... my $.02!

I used a product called astrofoil. It is a 1/4 inch thick aluminum covered bubble wrap of sorts. It is a little more than fiberglass but is much easier to work with. It is an R-19 value.
