So my pipe isnt all that long now. I have the T and one 90 and 6' vert pipe and then 3' horizontal and the cap on the end. Is that still too much? The stove has one auger. from the bin to a chute that gravity drops into the burn pot. the best way i can describe this is that the pellets just pile up and like ... half burn ... and then fill the entire pot overflowing both on and half on fire into the sides of the stove etc. the OAK has a deflector plate for protection. I had my girl shut it off and clean it earlier and now i am running a second test with the new pipe length as well as the gasket and plate in there. So I am going to call Englander in the meantime and update them a bit and see what they say and if they have any other ideas etc.
