About smoking stoves when they are cold...
When the RMH is cold, I have read that you can start the fire deeper into the burn tunnel, or burn some paper.

I remember a trick we used in mountain refuges...
Very cold outside, and freezing inside, ...and a smoking stove as a welcome! There might have been some snow above, and anyway, everything was soooo cold!

We used to put a lighted candle below the 90° bend just after the cast iron stove.
It was heating the start of the straight vertical pipe going up to the roof.
It worked VERY well for starting a smoke-free fire.

I don't know if this can be used on the pipe that goes out of the house for a rocket, because it will be much further from the rocket than in the stove case.
It is an experimental device that will make my mind that most powerful force on earth! More powerful than this tiny ad!
