I'm also in Northern Wisconsin and it hasn't been wet and warm enough to make my stove struggle. Weather seems to be the biggest issue when it's drizzling and 40 degrees out. Of course, we have different stoves and chimneys.
How tall is your chimney? If you're worried about moving the stove too close to the wall, could you swap out the 90s for 45s? That should help the draft and maybe let you leave the stove far enough away from the wall.

I wonder if the baffles in it are preventing draft somehow? I assume it is a Cat Stove?

Now you get what you pay for of course. It won't compare to a Jotul, pacific energy or Napoleon... But it will jump you forward a few centuries...
