Yes it's possible, but you're trying to fight against convection, so you need a better draft from your chimney, which means leaving more heat to escape.

That's very nice though the "bench" is a little high for butt's warming in the morning!
I keep this sort of design for later on....
I have do do more than one stove at my place...
What is great is that I noticed that the down draft after the riser can be in a pipe instead of around the riser!

I think the best answer is, when you put a barrel around a test rocket, always the draft suffers. Even tho the whole bottom is open. The gases are nowhere like nearing the dew point, nor cooling more than ambient, which would be necessary to create a draft.
