no baro, mpd closed, draft controls dialed down... he's seems to be pulling a lot (hence, why he wants to block out more of the MPD exposure to draft). I will use Larry's analogy here for the poster (it appears it might be a circumstance he spoke of)... If your smoking a pipe and your taking a draw (you can use your thumb to cover that pipes hot bowl of tobacco and the "draw" is still going to come 100% through the burning tobacco) AKA=MPD... if you drill a hole in the side of the stem of that pipe you are NOW alleviating the burning up of that tobacco to some degree AKA=Baro... mind you... these circumstances change drastically from stove to stove and chimney to chimney so their is NO "right" answer... only the answer that may work best for "YOU". I believe your one of the folks who needs and should use a Baro!
Obviously don't use a baro with wood (that's a no brainer!), but their are plenty folks who can give you some recommendations how to safely get around that hurdle as previously mentioned.
