I have one of those on my house wood stove. I like it. It is reading surface temperature.
This is important with a conventional stove, as a high pipe temp could start a chimney fire. In the creosote conventional stoves produce or ignite nearby wood framing. RMH's do not do either.
You would be surprised to see the numbers if you were able to read the internal gas temp.
What we are trying to do. Is maximize the heat held and keep chimney temperatures warm enough for convection and to resist moisture buildup in the stack.
But not so hot that I am "wasting" heat out the chimney.
Yes, this is me being a geeky pyro … but I like it !
