Jotul manual calls for 24 gauge black stove pipe to fit into flue collar. Well for an istall where the stove sits close to the front of a fireplace opening it doesn't seem like there is much room for a horizontal black pipe. Before reading the manual, I'd invisioned the tee connector from a fle liner kit being the short piece that would fit in the collar. Am I missing somethin? Are the tee connectors made of 24 gauge and can they be painted with high temp black stove paint? Help?
