Secondary Burn Tube

California, United States

Thanx for your article about the anatomy of the woodstove.

I have a question about the secondary burn tube. Mine kept popping off and I finally fixed it but was wondering if the direction of the holes matters?

I had them point forward, towards the opening and it seemed to blow a lot of smoke out when I opened the door to add wood. I flipped it this morning to point towards the back but have yet to light a fire to see the difference. Is there a nominal position for those holes?
