    Thanks for your service Muck.
    It sounds like you will be ok for wood if this is just for occasional use this year. Were you able to get a couple bake in fires done after the stove installation? I noticed that the stove flue collar was sealed with what looks like RTV. That is not going to stand up to the high heat there and it may stink a bit as it bakes. Normally that area is sealed with a little furnace cement.

    You're welcome begreen, happy to serve. yes, i did use RTV and the stove has been previously used, so the bake in fires shouldn't be an issue except for the RTV. maybe i will replace the RTV with a little furnace cement after my first cleaning. The double sided fireplace gives great access to the back side..
