    is there a set rule of thumb for this? I ask cause my coal stoker when it's running and i look at the temps of the stove and flue there always around 100 degrees apart. Is this just the way it is?
    If i have my coal stoker running at 500 degrees the flue temp is 400. To me that doesn't really seem effeicent.I'm sure the actual coal bed is hotter then the surface temp of the stove
