    Yes, on ignition the auto ignite models do smoke a bit. You'll want to get a bit of a vertical run on the pipe anyway so try to take it above the door. According to our Quad manual, the exhaust should be at least 48" from the doorway and 12" above it. If there is a window above, it is supposed to be 48" from that too.
