I would use cardboard (from cardboard-boxes) between metal stove and cob, specially on vertical stove wall. When the temperature will be very high, the cardboard burning but the ash (or air gap) is very good for preventing cob from cracks. Only problem I have seen is that cardboard insulation is too good and cob does not accumulate heat. It happened with my rocket but it is made from bricks and bricks are too cold compared with metal stove during the heating. So with metal stove very thin layer of cardboard work very well. Another thing is horizontal layer of cob on metal stove. Here cardboard does not work when cardboard will burn, cob cracks. So here we need probably metal lintels that stays on cob wall and on that cob.
