    500 probe flue gas
    225 exterior stovepipe
    675 stovetop

    I have double wall excel stovepipe

    A big load that is allowed to get real hot then dampered all the way down seems to have a lower flue gas temp in relation to stovetop.
    A smaller load that you don't let rip but cruise at say 1/3 air seems to have flue gas that is closer to if not equal to stovetop.

    Here are my numbers this morning after bringing the stove back to life.

    700 probe flue gas
    300 exterior stove pipe (single wall)
    550 stove top (still climbing)

    Too bad you dont have single wall pipe. Maybe there is someone else out there with a Summit and double wall that could compare temps? I'm still wondering if your probe or mine is off a little? I never had a probe with my prior noncat stoves, but my external pipe temps were always running higher compared to my cat stoves. No big deal anyways, sounds like your burning clean with no creosote problems.

    well after watching them videos, i don't think i'll be as bad off as i thought earlier today...

    dry wood, good draft, and right temp seems to be the key things
