My preference is for a barometric damper on a stove lacking a thermostat to control incoming air. Very weak draft it doesn't matter but with strong or varying draft the fire will be steadier. Could be put in a tee just at the stove exit and by removing it the pipe can be inspected and even cleaned a bit.. Stuffed fiberglass should be seal enough.

ColdHouse wrote:I picked up the stove today. Prior to pick up I went to Home Depot and bought 4) 2"x4" x 8', 2) 2"x10" x 12' and a set of their cheapest ratchet straps. To load the stove we strapped 2 2x4's to the back of the stove with 2 straps. We opened the tailgate and backed the truck up a few feet away from the stove. We tilted the stove so until the 2x4's were laying on the tailgate. We went to the front of the stove and picked it up and slid it into the pick up bed. Easy peasy! When we got home we stood the stove upright. Backed the truck as close to my stairs as possible. Layed the 2x10 in the truck & on the top step. We used a 2 wheel dolly and rolled that sucker right into the living room. Easy Peasy nice and easy! I ordered from amazon an manometer and barometric damper and a CO detecter. Home Depot does not carry black stove pipe but a place a couple of miles away does. No need for the pipe or fittings until I get the stuff from Amazon. Stove looks like it was hardly ever used. Oh forgot to mention after unloading the stove my son meticulously repackaged the ratchet straps and we returned all the lumber and straps for a full refund.
