I have a wall tent with a wood stove that has a wood pellet attachment (Riley pellet stove).

Q. Is there a desired length of stove pipe that allows the stove to operate more efficently? Other than the obvious length of pipe to get the heat up and away from the roof of the tent, w/o catching the canvas on fire . . . . can a stove pipe be too "short" or too "long"?

Thanks.

I'm not a expert but think you need to be a few feet above the roof peak. If not it will not draft properly
