Glass is not an insulator, why do you ask?

You are more right than you know about moisture being a potential problem with mass heaters, could i have your location and altitude to start !
Yes, I did pick up that book. Lot's of good info. My location is at the top of a hill in West Virginia. Probably a little over 2000 feet. Usually, winters are cold; 10 degrees or below for the lowest of the lows.

As in can I put the exit just about any where? For example having the exhaust come out of the side instead directly across from the burn tunnel? I'm not talking about coming out of the side of the barrel. The exhaust will still be located at the base of the unit but coming out at a 45 from the burn tunnel. I hope this makes sense. I'm heating a poly-carb aluminum greenhouse.
