Wood Stove installation w/vaulted ceiling

I'm planning to install a small wood stove, one rated for about 1000 sqft.

The pipe will go straight up through a vaulted ceiling.

I read somewhere that I should have something like 14' of pipe in order to get optimal draw through the stove; However, when I follow the code and put it 3' above the roof line, and 2' above the ridge which is within 10' of the pipe, I end up with a little over 9'.

Is that enough, since it's straight up.

Also, the ceiling/roof pitch is 4/12. I'm wondering if the plates on the wall thimble will conform to the angle, or do they make an angled thimble for such installations?

Where are you located?
Temp difference will effect this as well
I had maybe 10' of pipe at my last house
The stove was newer w/catalytic converter - burned fine
You should be using insulated pipe going thru the roof & after that
So it doesn't cool down due to weather
"Where you are located?" is due to the fact hot stove air will rise faster if it is colder outside
