What you see is not unusual depending on your pipe length
If you had a long run say over 6 feet you would never see
sparks. that's why your manual says that on a straight-out pipe
run that all flammable material must be removed
Just remember there is always an exception for every rule.

I see the little embers all the time with the Castle stove. I have a basement install that goes through the foundation and then up maybe 6 ft or so. I believe the manual calls for no combustible material within like 2 ft. I honored that with a arborvitae nearby to about 3 feet. A few weeks back, I decided to trim back even more giving about 6 or 7 feet. Too many little embers for my liking. I think they are caused by the wood dust in the pellet bag.

The last bag of pellets I used up were from last year a lot of places around here store them outside it's hard to find a store that keeps them inside.I showed them on the bag where it says about storing them and they say it has to do with fire code for the store.
