    Should the exhaust pipe on the back of my stove fit over the stove exhaust collar or inside the collar? Mine is outside the collar but I am getting some puffs os smoke when damping the fire using the damper I installed in the stove pipe. All opinion and facts welcome. Thanks.

    On modern (late model) stoves it should go inside so that any creosote which comes down the pipe would stay inside. On old units, they didn't see it that way.

    What are you burning in?

    I am burning in an old Tempwood 2 stove. I am thinking that it would be better having the pipe INSIDE the stove exhaust collar. I would think it would be harder for smoke to escape with it inside. You think? Thanks.

    If it can go inside, put it inside.

    If it takes a crimp or two on the male end of the pipe to do so, then use stove cement to help seal thing tightly.

    Moving this over to the Classic Stove Room.

    Mine goes over. The opening on the exhaust on the firebox is 7". They don't make 7" pipe. They make 8 or 6. 6 is so small so I went with 8. I haven't noticed any issues.

    I have not seen it at Lowes or Home Depot. It was my mom/pop store in the area who had it. Even had 6-7 inch adapter, elbows, the whole works. Pretty good for not being a stove shop. I laught at how many times that store with 1/4 the sq foot of a big box often has what I need when those big boys don't.
