Anyone watch that homestead rescue show on Discovery channel? Anyway they showed the host homestead cabin/house. It’s like a bunch of elbow and added pipe off wood stove. It’s never been mentioned. I think I might’ve seen it with the Alaskan bush family too. Those shows always make it like the wood comes from Forrest to stove within hours. I get the feeling they're all BS.

Looks like a stack robbing creosote dream on an old BK.

I feel bad for this guy's wife that has to deal with a house full of fine creo particulate when the single wall is cleaned.

Watch this show a lot, and get a good laugh out of it having grown up in the country. I like the family, they seem down to earth. Definitely surprised he doesn’t know better, but I see a lot of sketchy wood stove installs on these Alaska based shows...

Watched one show where they were putting in a chimney (not homestead rescue)
They used a 6inch well casing I guess it is whatever works

I drive by a place on occasion that has a lenght of uninsulated 10" Stainless Steel pipe for a chimney. Its not a lined stainless steel wood stove chimney, it looks to be Sch 10 SS pipe, no doubt from a local papermill.
