The other idea for pulling more heat out of your stove is to get a larger chunk of ducts work that fits around the chimney and have a thermostat and a fan that blows air around it as it gets hot, thus cooling the chimney, doing anything like this is going to require that you seal the chimney well, that you clean it once a year as soot will more or less condense on the side of it, but you can lessen the need for those jobs if you burn good hot fires as they burn cleaner with less residue.
So any time that you make a bend, make sure that it's possible to clean that bend.
