The earth stove commenced smoking so much we couldnt add wood without getting a cabin full of smoke, not even crack the door.
Took all the pipe apart.
Knocked all the creosote out.
Little help.
Considered the ponderosa pine (probably a culprit, probably not cured)
Sites said adding more exterior pipe makes a world of difference.

Added a three foot section





No smoke.
Zero
Nada

Heh, been fighting 'some' cabin smoke for almost three years, thinking Id screwed up not sending the pipe straight thru the roof
Resigned to the fact Id be doing just that this summer.
Sprung for a length of exterior just to prove em wrong.
$160
So glad they werent.

 ...and no, no snow
 this date last year we had 4 1/2 feet accumulated
 not unhappy about it...yet

 anyway
Im gonna add a support bracket for mental assurance, even though 5 from the roof line is supposed to be OK without it.
Wind here can gust to 80 or more mph.



fires to keep

Getting the pipe at least 2' above the ridge will help some.  Watch the cap for accumulation of creosote which will partially stop the exhaust (smoke) from freely leaving the pipe.

Yes, and yes
I'd considered a spark arresting screen on the cap, but was cautioned against it for just that reason

Before I added the 3' section it was a lot easier to remove it and swab the pipes

but

so be it

and the occasional hot fire with lesser wood

keep a fire, John
