In my opinion, a baro is more critical in an oil fired situation, where everything is established right from the get/go.
When burning wood or coal, the parameters of the burn change as it progresses over a period of time. I'd say the baro is more to prevent over heating after it gets "cookin' ".
Your procedure seems OK to me.
