Devil and Dallas,, so how do you handle this type of weather? Stay up all night and baby sit the stove,, or ignore it and go back to sleep?? Without a barometric damper, your hand feed stove would overheat, and or burn up all it's fuel in record time.Sure is windy
ON TOPIC NOW,,, stove pipe or flue pipe joints don't need to be hermeticly sealed unless they are on a DV stove.. the pipes then are under presssure..
The only other time you want or would need sealed joints is if you have a lousy chimney or chimney location where you can get draft reversal in the chimney.. this can also be caused by a tight house with too many exhaust fans. and no dedicated outside air source for combustion air to the stove.
