The only kind of thermite useable in this scenario would leave a residue of aluminum oxide and some sort of calcium salts baked onto the steel, as well as glubules of iron. On a horizontal surface, the iron would puddle or burn completely through, On a vertical surface, it would flow like candle wax, and harden almost as quickly.
