Re: Flue Temps

Wood (red oak) moisture is right around 12% to 15%. seasoned about 1 1/2 to 2 years.

Re: chimneys

I have a big jack with a metal chimmney (type HT)and have had no problems. It seems to handle the heat just fine. just make sure you look at Keith's post on chimmneys, he is right on, not all of them are same. Oh, not that it makes a difference I also live in WI.
