Use either black steel or stainless steel stovepipe for projects like this.
Nearly all the steel breakdown stove pipes I have ever seen for packer stoves are galvanized, such as these:
Kni-Co Manufacturing Inc, Wood Burning Camp Stoves and Sheepherder Products

which is why the recommend to get a fire going in a new stove outside beore you go using it in a wall tent.

shappa- I had no idea such a small amount of fire would have that much effect, (particularly for that long). I may have to rethink how I approach some of my winter camping.

Also checked out the stoves you mention as I hadn't heard of them. Those look great!

I don't have a small stove, the fire box is about 10" x 10" x 23", which hold a some pretty big wood The key is to get a handle on the damper to make it burn long and slow, you can also line the bottom of a large stove with high heat tile so it absorbs heat to radiat it longer too.

Hey St2eel,
Hopefully this repost of the images works. If not, check in my photo gallery here.

We definitely had some condensation inside, when we set the tipi up on wet sand, and left it overnight with no fire inside, but we burned that condensation off within 30-45 min of firing up the stove. The one day that we had heavy rain all day, we had one or two drips at a seam. I didn't bother seam-sealing before this trip. We didn't get condensation from people/gear.

We had 9 people in big camp chairs in it comfortably, and used it really for hanging out and drying out gear. It was super nice to have a warm, dry place to eat dinner and hang out in, rather than everybody going straight to their tents after dinner. I don't think anybody slept in it, though.

It's 10'-11' radius, and 10.5'-11' tall. I know that sounds funny that the dimensions are variable, but it really depends just how you set it up. You can set it up wider and shorter or taller and skinnier (a little bit each way, not a whole lot) depending on the space that's available.

I'm happy to answer any other questions.

Shapp's back!

Looks like a fun trip, steelhead, bulltrout, nice weather!

I was on the Clearwater a few weeks ago when it was at 25K, we thought about running over to the Grand Rhonde for a few days but it was also blown, so we stayed put... 5 days of nothing then 15 fish in the last 24 hours. Glad we stayed.

Hope your here to stay!
