I know I am evaporating creosote when the glass begins to clear. Once the glass is clear again, I throttleback a bit. I never let the fire smolder. If you have wood in the firebox that hasn't turned to hot embers yet, you have to provide over-fire air until all the volatiles are burned off.
I have never had creosote build up in my chimney. I inspect it twice a year, but it is always clean as the day I installed it.
Hope this helps.
Yep - this is my regular practice. I don't run my stove in any other mode than full capcity. I always let it burn to hot embers over night and by morning there is nothing but powder.
Ill bet my chimney will look like yours when I get it inspected.
