I just shut down with a full hopper & it took 3 1/2 days to go out. I pulled my pipes apart last night & cleaned--today I will clean, shop vac & WD40 the stove & wait for next winter--Hey, that guy in your Avatar has my walking stick.

The baffle would steal less heat from the combustion area if it had the bottom faced with insulating firebrick or ceramic felt.
