    So today, since it was nice out, seemed like it was the perfect time to run the SootEater down my SS liner. Now I didn't just give it a quick up/down cleaning, I took my time. Then I decided to connect my phone to the rods and send it down the SS liner, see what type of job the SootEater did. Only wish I had taken video before cleaning as it doesn't look like I made a dent. Just about every time I have used the stove, I have added the creosol breakdown powder you add to the hot coals.

    I will warn you, it's not pretty and I think I am going to need a 6" brush to really attack the liner.

    I'm no expert, but looks like a lot of creosote. I'd try to do better with a 6' nylon brush, and the sooteater. And try to burn the fire a little hotter going forward.

    Aye aye aye...I've seen worse...but that ain't good by any means. I honestly thought it would look even worse than it does considering all the issues you had with puff the magic furnace.
    You could try a nylon brush, but I bet there's not much you are gonna be able to do with this other than run it...try to "dry it out"...maybe use some of that creosote eliminator stuff...although it doesn't actually eliminate it, it does dry it out into something that can be cleaned off. Over time it may flake off as you do cold start fires...as the liner expands when its heating up, sometimes you can hear creosote flaking off from the movement.
