First, the top of what ?? Are you speaking of the top of the fire box to use as a griddle ?? If so, that will not work... stainless expands too much and will buckle and warp...
been there, done that....Dave
yep that is what I was going to say if that was the plan. I got a pc along time ago and we put it on my dads fire box and it bowed up in the center like crazy... it worked like a redneck George Foreman grill lol.... all the fat and grease ran to the edges
