Our Stovepipe Thermometer Types Video
The objective of wood heating is to effectively manage the heat so the heat stays in the stove/room rather than go up the chimney, however the chimney has to stay hot enough to allow gasses to exit without condensing and forming creosote on the walls of the flue
