I would like to be able to measure the temp on this unit, but I'm not sure it lends itself to temp monitoring like a freestanding stove does. So a couple of questions: I have an IR gun, where would I measure the temp to get consistent readings? Would a stove surface temp gauge be worthwhile? I'd be really interested in monitoring flue gas temp. Do they make remote flue temp gauges and how do you install them in double wall pipe (air cooled SL-300)? Will there be world peace? I'm getting the hang of the burn in the unit, so I'm not sure how important it really is to have a temp gauge. It would be nice to have though, and I'd like to watch peak temps in the flue when its on a high burn setting. Thoughts from those of you with ZC fireplaces?
