The initial burn will be curing the paint. If you cannot perform your first burn outdoors, you will want to open your windows. Other than the first burn there is no smoke or smell. COPD folks might reconsider using solid fuel heat.
I bought Wiseway 2 months ago.
I made an upgrade to block the smoke that sometimes comes out of the door.
and to control the temperature I also make the rear plug air intake
Congratulations on your new Wiseway!
I don't know what door your are talking about. Can you post some pictures of your mods?
with the pleasure.

You get back smoke because your flue is not tall enough. Remove that last 45 degrees facing down. This setup will lose draw on occasion. Thanks for posting!!
the last pipe blocks the ingress of water or snow, but I will try
Today I used my wiseway again. heating the pipe took 20 minutes. outside temperature -20C. everything worked well. The only thing I am still trying to control is the constant temperature around 500F. if not to control, then it can rise strongly and I worry about the pipes. They, like on your site, Duravent, are designed to a maximum of 570F.
