    The pipe will create draw. The higher the more air it draws....that equals heat

    Along with helping increase natural draft, depending on which way the wind blows, it can keep a lot of smoke and embers out of your syrup..

    Lowes and or Home Depot may have what you need for stove pipe. or if you have stove shop close by? Maybe get a 6 foot steel fence post to wire the pipe to for support?

    Back when I had a small arch, outdoors, on my patio, I used 2 pieces of 1/2" EMT for guy supports. The stack actually leaned away from the back at maybe 30 degrees so the canopy tent I had over the arch would not get melted. I used a 1/4" bolt thru a hole drilled in flattened end on each EMT and bolted it to the stack. The other end of the EMTs were screwed to a top rail on my adjacent deck. Each section of stack had 3 screws holding it together. That worked well.
    If anyone is not familiar with EMT, it is short for electrical metallic tubing used to run electric wires in.
