    Anyone else have problems with a recurring paint curing smell with selkirk DSP? I'm going on my second year using it and when I run a full load it inevitably stinks before I shut down to cruise. I don't have a probe thermometer, but I generally start stepping it down around 400 - stovetop. Have never had the it over 700. I'm not real impressed with this product thus far.

    Can't say as ours has had a bad odor since the break-in fires, but I'm curious why you blame the pipe and not the stove. How can you tell which one is making the smell?

    I think its the pipe because it's only toward the beginning of the burn cycle, when the air is open. After I start shutting down the stove top temps continue up, but the smell goes away. It's not really strong, but I wouldn't expect any smell at this point.

    I have the telescoping DSP and have not had any smell from it. It was installed this season and has seen 700+ stove top and 800+ flue probe for short times with nothing noticeable.
