Hi all, new member here. first time posting but I do spend quite a bit of time on here reading its a great source for any questions or just general reviews. I have a Monaco zero clearance wood burning fireplace I've had it for a 3 of years now and I must say I'm pleased with it. For its price it has exceeded my expectations greatly it was purchased more as a focal point for my living room in my house and to light in the evening every now and again but its proven to be great in heating my entire house and we have it lit just about every day and love it. As I'm sure most of you know the chimney for these stove is insulated prefab chimney right to the top of the stove. I am curious if there is a way to measure flue temps for monitoring? I did have a small chimney fire 3 years ago, mainly due to burning wet wood. Since then I've insured my wood is nice and dry before burning season and I've had no problem since but I would also like to be able to monitor the temp to ensure optimum burning temps. the fireplace is built in but I still do have access to top of stove and chimney. Wondering if there is any option other than pointing a infrared thermometer into stove to give a more precise temp reading. Something similar to a flue temp gauge for a free standing wood stove.
