I burn a lot of wood during the winter months and in the past I have had two chimney fires in my stainless steel chimney. When I took the stove pipe off one time I found almost an inch of creosote built up in the pipe. Luckily we had no damage to the house.
Anybody have any suggestions on how to stop this buildup of creosote? I heard somewhere that you can buy these stovepipe thermometers that tell youi whether or not your stove is burning properly.
