    I would settle for something that would shut down secondary air around 350-400 degrees. That would shift the air balance all to primary air and get a more efficient burn out of the pile of stuff left in the back of the firebox. Most people don't see that smoke from the inefficient last third of the burn in a large firebox stove be it loaded N/S or E/W because they are asleep. Smoke escaping that could have been heat.

    Haha! I could let my stove go cold all day, 10-12hrs with it -15 outside and I don't think it would get that cold in the house if it was ~70ish when I left for work.
