Optimal Chimney Temperature?

Alabama, United States   

I have a smaller, non-cat, cast iron wood burner with approx. 6’ of single wall black pipe and 9’ of insulated double-wall chimney above.

I’m trying to minimize creosote build-up.

Is there a recommended operating temperature I should maintain or not go below.

I have an infra-red thermometer, so I can take readings anywhere on the stove and along the black pipe pretty easily.
