    I've looked at 2 Earth stove now and they both have what appears to be a 1 inch black iron pipe running up the chimney. What is the purpose of the pipe and can the stove function fine with out it????

    I purchased an Earth Stove last year. Didn't give much attention to this. But while I was welding some seams on it I got wondering this myself. I had an Earth stove over 20 years ago but it was a rear vent and I don't think it had one. It did have the 2 pipes that went up at an angle but no 1" pipe. I hope someone has an answer. I would assume it would be to burn off some residual gasses.
