Stainless will not stay shiny for too long in a wood fireplace. Apart from getting dirty from the smoke the high heat will tarnish it so its bright finish will not last. It is also way less conductive than than normal steel although I don't know how this would affect performance as brick is way less conductive than any steel.

excellent discussion. i learned a lot, and will not go forward with the stainless heat back. I didn't design it like Oz's, and that looks like a great one. My next step is to modify mine with a flue to adjust the heat flow. thanks again.
