    I am venting my stove from the family room into the garage and thro the garage roof I felt this pipe it was quite hot while running the stove. Do you think it would be possible to strap a cyndrical water jacket to this pipe to collect the heat and then pump it into my baseboard heating to even out the temperature in the house. Any takers on this one

    It could work if you can get the water hot enough. But that is the big question.

    Nope. It would be awesome, but I really don't think you'd get any meaningful volume of water heated up with this method.
    You might succeed in cooling the pipe, which could be a bad thing (lost draft) depending upon what your venting situation is.
