Stupid is as stupid does. A line from the movie Forrest Gump that seems to fit well. If I kept the door open that long with a N/S load like that with my dry wood, it would be totally engulfed in flame. I don't dare open the door once it gets going. He keeps going on about "double wall, keeps the heat in" and complains about not being able to make his single wall smokepipe cherry. I bet the inside of that stove is blacker'n black. If it really kept the heat in, it would be light tan like the inside of my stove. Oh, as for the label not burning off, I did all my own copper plumbing and was amazed how the barcode labels on the fittings survive the soldering torch.
