...a "hunter's tent" or tipi "winter camp" depicted in post #1 doesn't stay up long enough for that much build-up.realityguy, A damper in a stove pipe would control the draw of the pipe better and maybe slow down the burn if the front damper won't tighten down enough to do so.I would think a damper in a stove pipe would be very susceptable to accumulating a large amount of soot and creosote and have to be continually removed and cleaned..a messy job in a tent!
I would think taking it down, and before putting it up would be the time to knock it against the ground to shake out build-up.
Were you thinking a stove-pipe brush? I have never done that, yet.
I guess, I burn clean burning wood: white smoke = moisture, then no smoke. I think, blue smoke is the polluter to stove-pipes. I only have had white smoke, then clear smoke.
