    how 'bout the efficacy of just laying a couple of soapstone tiles on top of a steel non-cat stove? or even covering the whole top with same? (not affixed, just laid there) .....anybody ever try it? anything that would scuttle the idea? and does anyone have a good soapstone tile dealer suggestion?

    Up here in New England there is another Brewski Named Teddy Damn good linebacker
    One could try soapstone on the top I don't know if it will hinder the stove heat dissipation or help it
    That could be a concern

    I second that, you risk causing the surface temperature of the metal to be higher than normal and possibly warp it.
