Temps dropped a bit so I did another test and had door open for 15 minutes while I got the fire started and Wife stayed in the room. 0 smoke. Got to temp fast.

Thanks for the support, now I just need to leverage my chimney guy to add the 3’ of double wall without charging me. God is good.

Well that's good news and a good test. Now transfer to the Top down starting method. You will be able to close the door in 1-2 minutes. Thus avoiding smoke by heating up the top of your stove much much faster. Cleaner burn all around.
Good job OP!
