Making an all steel car camping wood stove from some round tubing a have available and wondering about the size a placement of a baffle. Tubing is around 8'' in diameter and will be about 14'' long and I'm planning on using a 3'' stove pipe. Question is how far from the top should the baffle be and how far away from the back and how far in front of the exhaust hole. I'm thinking about 2'' from the top and 1'' from the back of the stove and 3'' in front of the exhaust exit.

Thoughts and advice please.

I would suggest keeping the baffle low enough so that when you put the stove pipe through the stove body it doesnt sit on the baffle but has about a half inch to 1 inch of a gap

The baffle in my light outdoor stove comes all the way from one stove endplate to the other but they are notched out three inches on one end and one inch on the other to allow the airflow to circulate
