Low-Cost Exhaust versus Higher-Priced Stainless Steel Exhaust Systems

Is there any alternative to the $250 exhaust cap kit that looks awesome but the wife is giving me a hard time about cost due to having too many kids and they obviously come first lol Anyone do a functional chimney cap with a spark arrestor for a lot less money?

Our DuraTech exhaust kits, made from high-quality stainless steel with a double-wall design, are considered the best in the market. Unfortunately, the prices have increased significantly due to the soaring cost of metal after Covid rocked our world. And the decision to relocate most of our metal manufacturing plants out of the US has led to a substantial rise in metal prices, which ultimately affects us as consumers.

In response to your query, there are several inexpensive exhaust kits available, such as those found at HD, Lowes, Rona, and others. However, it’s important to note that these kits are designed for standard home ventilation and are typically painted, galvanized, or zinc coated. They were not specifically created to withstand the intense temperatures exceeding 1000°F that escape from your oven. Painted exhaust kits are prone to burning and rusting quickly, while zinc and galvanized kits can emit toxic chemicals when exposed to high temperatures (known as Galvanization Poisoning).

When it comes to high-heat exhaust systems, it is crucial to invest in and install only stainless-steel options. As mentioned earlier, our DuraTech exhaust kits are the top-of-the-line in stainless steel exhaust systems.

From an asthenic viewpoint, do you really want a low-cost exhaust kit as the focal point of your meticulously crafted backyard masterpiece that you built from scratch from the ground up? Or would you prefer a sleek, durable, top-of-the-line stainless-steel “Cadillac hood ornament” that exudes masculinity and stands the test of time?
