Hi. 6” liner guy won’t go down my chimney guy again. Since I’m using the stove as supplemental heat, has anyone used one of these mini stoves, like a Grizzly or Kimberly? They only require a 3” insulated liner. I know they require far less vertical flue than regular stoves. Would 35’ of 3” be too much for these little guys?

I would bet you will have trouble controlling it at that height.

You're also going to be less than pleased at how a <1cf stove that takes 6" sticks heats a house. If you want heat, break that liner out and spend your $1000 on a full sized heater.

I'm also going to have to question how thick the sheet metal is on a 39 pound stove... that's a safety hazard all by itself.
