I now have 304 stainless, but this is what it looks like going on yr.3 :
BUY 316!! Don't try to save a buck like I did.
FIRST MISTAKE: Black stovepipe -- duration: 1 SEASON
SECOND MISTAKE: 304 stainless stovepipe -- duration: 3 seasons (less, if you don't like holes)
BUY 316!! I'm kicking myself now for not ponying up the cash when I had it!
Yamabond will become part of my stovepipe this season....
The best S.S. To use with coal is 316 L S.S. more money but you will get more years out of it then with Just 316 S.S.
