Eventually, the gasses can't flow smoothly through the T and will back up on some installs. It's probably best to install a "T" at the first elbow so it's easy to clean out.
This is the post directly proceeding my post on cleaning the pipe at the stove, to which I replied:

If I happen to be removing the ashes and the stove is at Idle, I just stick the shop vac extension into the pipe and rattle it around some. Then I vacuum the ashbin area just because it is there.
I sure do wonder if the OP's problem is resolved, and where the problem was.
On page one of the this thread, I responded to a fellow LL stove owner that was having a problem

When it cools enough, dismantle the pipes. Inspect the chimney.
Do you have a CO detector with a digital read out for levels.
You should be very scared about keeping that stove lit until the you are sure the poisonous deadly gasses are going up the chimney.

To say the "only thing you need to do if you own a LL" isn't correct because it would only apply to installations where there isn't any horizontal pipe.
Where did I say "only thing you need to do if you own a LL"
If there is a problem with my posting on your forum, I will refrain from posting in the future.
