    I'd so with adding the rise and raincap..it will give you a bit of draw in case of a power outage

    The straight vent should be fine providing clearances are met. A vertical section would add some additional draft but generally isn't necessary. You may notice a little smoke coming into your house whenever you open the door, particularly when the stove is running on low, but it shouldn't be an issue. A windy day could exacerbate the problem.

    Congrats on the new stove. Remember to post pics.

    Also, an OAK is a VERY good idea. Do a search.
