Do you guys put the silicone in the track cover with wax paper and wait for it to dry? We have always used a fiberglass rope in ours. Sounds like an interesting idea using silicone instead of rope. Less sticky I suppose with creasote sticking to it?

Went ahead with the 600 rated and wax paper and closed the door and let it mold/set up. Fired it up on Tues and once the firebox heated up it expanded and sealed up just fine. Haven't had but a couple nights here in VA where I am to need any heat but it won't be long. Got to get the woodpile built up. Also enclosed the stove with a shed in the last few weeks to keep the wind off as well as have a dry place to store some wood and load the stove out of the weather. Hope it makes a difference in the wood consumption as well.
