    Looks like they wanted to let the exhaust cool off before it went behind the curtain and out the window.

    completely retarded. looks like a home made "magic heat" setup for pellet vent.

    i'd buy it for cheap could hook up 4 stoves properly with the pipe alone (with a few extra tee's and some thimbles)

    bad part is its one of my stoves :(

    X2 must have thought that more pipe meant more heat to radiate from it.

    Besides those of us that know you understand that you don't run good stuff other than through copper, it spoils the flavor among other bad things.

    Yea, thats the only thing I could come up with. But it's not like a wood or coal stove with single wall black stove pipe.
