Flue gas analysis
There was heavy sooting at startup, because of lack of draft and ignition of all the white birch bark.
The flue temperature anomaly at 15 minutes is from the sooting up of the sensor and shorting out to the casing.
Gas probe was pulled and sensor cleaned at 20 minutes.
Note the super high CO for the first 30 minutes.
