I understand completely. I'm just hoping this idea lowers the temp closer to the stove. In theory, it should.
The best part of this, is the heat radiating area you gain is going to be astronomical compared to just the stove alone.
EDIT: A person could always add heavy steel pipe, or a piece of well casing or something for the first couple feet off the stove.
