Cleanout adapter on Buck stove

Is there anything out there that can be used to clean out a wood burning stove from the bottom side? Such as a cleanout pipe adapter- if there is such a thing?? I purchased a home that has an older model buck stove and the top side pipe runs 8 feet up from my roof line. It is a royal pain to disconnect the entire pipe and get it recentered. I know it sounds crazy but I would like to figure out an easier way to clean it out without removing the pipe on the roof... thanks

Does the stovepipe run straight up from the stove top? Or is there an offset? If it is straight, you probably have no other option. If it is offset, you could theoretically put in a tee with one leg pointing down, and run a chimney brush up through that. Unfortunately that will mean a lot of ash and dust inside the room, whch may not be acceptable. My beloved has a woodstove with stovepipe running out the wall below the ceiling, and a tee at the base of the chimney with about 8' of clearance to ground, so she can clean the chimney without issues.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://richsoil.com/wood-heat.jsp
