Unless we can 'see' the install you may never properly describe the install.
Level and plumb the baro and the draft issues caused by the faulty install will be solved.
With the short flue height give the Nut a try!
Even a mix of Nut and Pea will work.
You should be able to roast yourself out of that room if you cared to!
Yes, I'm glad that you asked for them! I knew that level was important - I didn't get (until today!) that plumb is as important for the baro.
With the heat I'm getting out of it now with the front vents closed I'm a little a'scared to fix the baro if that means it will put out even more heat! :~) But, I will fix it since it's the right (and safe) thing to do!
I will see if my local supplier does bagged so that I can get some of the nut to try.
