DLL , Nice setup. I like the idea of baking potatoes. I've done that many times in the stove part of my cookstove and they come out very crispy which my wife loves,,, me,, not so much. In looking at your hot water setup ,,, the copper pipes to the left ,, are those soldered joints ? If so , any problems with leaking from the joints not holding with the heat from the stove ? I have been reluctant to tackle that part of the job but would like to some day. I would have to use a pump to move the water through the pipes as my hot water tank is 35' away in the basement.
