Also, should the manual damper be before or after the barometric damper? Any input will be much appricated.
I use a manual, it seems to work for me. I will caution you that the overfire draft can go positive with the use of a manual damper if you have a forced draft (blower). I'm not trying to scare you, just make sure you know whats going on here. You will need good gaskets and no leaks.
The manual should be as close to the unit's outlet as possible, the baro must be after it at some distance, never before.
