a 10 inch system is going to burn at around 4500 degrees in the hot spot of the heat riser on a regular fuel load.

It seems to me that with all the draw of the stove it would suck the oxygen out of the area which could be dangerous. Any info would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks for al you do guys this site is amazing!

Any combustion device may not be able to draw properly with negative pressures (the lab tests check for building pressures up to about -5 something-or-others, units anyone? Pascals?).

You tell them that stoves take in air and they'll insist that it isn't so because you can't burn nitrogen. It's actually a good qualifying tool as idiots self identify. :
