With the temps hitting the 90s now in Virginia, I'm going to hazard a guess and say the burning season's over, so I got up on the roof and cleaned the chimney on Memorial Day. I looked at it from below and there was no creosote at all on the stainless steel liner as far up as I could see. There was some buildup at the top of the chimney when I looked down while on the roof, but it didn't seem to be a lot and was really flaky. So I jammed the brush down through and after one pass the liner was clean as could be. I gathered up the junk from the chimney, and swept a few ashes up from around the stove, and put it in a bucket, pictured below. So that's all the buildup in my chimney for a complete season of burning, plus some debris from around the stove. My father in law was there while I was doing this and he was pretty impressed. I'm sure it's more than a lot of the burners on here, but much less than I used to get - yet another benefit of getting ahead and burning drier wood!
