I removed the damper door and pushed the oval ss flex tube up 5 ft. stuffed it good with insulation and also put insulation around surround. My very first burn was the other night and it went without a hitch and the burn lasted from 6pm to about 8am with the fire box about half full. What a great way to heat your home! I'm new at this and read everything here before I did the install.
you don't say wether you you used a plate to cover the damper opening, did you just run the pipe up and stuff regular unfaced insulation around it?
