Woodstove Chimney question in Cabin


I am putting a wood stove in my cabin and am wondering about the chimney. I know i need the Triple wall Stainless chimney pipe to go through the roof, but how tall should the pipe be outside to draft properly. I am coming out of the stove 1 90 degree elbow and then straight up through the roof. I also assume i need to build or buy a support for the chimney where it goes out through the roof?

Thanks...

Check with the manufacturer of the stove. I have a Lopi stove, and it specifies a minimum of 15' of chimney. I originally had only 12', and it seemed to work OK most days. I had my sweep add 3' of pipe above the roof, and I now get less smoky smell in the cabin.

My chimney goes straight up through the finish ceiling, then through the metal roof. No additional bracing was needed.
