That was until Chuck_Steak clarified it:

in this thread: Am I Not Burning Stove Hot Enough?
I felt this was note worthy because I'm sure there are other members like myself whom have been hearing this term since childhood but never really understood what it meant.
I can honestly say that I thought over firing the stove was: Stove Body temp and not 'Stack'.
Thank you Chuck_Steak.
I also feel this should possibly be stickied so it could be referenced from time to time. And it would also be helpful to put max temps that different stoves should be run at to prevent over-fires.
