Pipe location

Maybe a dumb question but does it matter if the stove pipe hole is set in the front of the stove instead of the rear? Thanks

You want the exhaust pipe at the opposite end of the stove from the fresh air source so that the whole combustion chamber gets good air circulation. Since the fresh air vent is at the front, you want the exhaust port (the stove pipe) at the rear.

Which end you put the chimney pipe would depend on the type and brand of stove. For box stoves, it's safe to generalize that the pipe goes at the opposite end from the door and air vent. For cylinder stoves, that could depend on the brand, and whether there's an internal baffle in the stove body. Cylinder stoves from Kifaru, Ti-Goat and some others don't have an internal baffle, so it's again safe to generalize that the pipe goes at the opposite end from the door/air vent. If you have a LiteOutdoors cylinder stove, it will depend on whether you're using it with or without the optional internal baffle. If LiteOutdoors is the brand involved, you should watch their videos on the website (www.liteoutdoors.com) for a discussion of the pros and cons of putting the pipe at the same end as the door/air vents or in the traditional way at the opposite end.
