High temperature caulk odor reduction

caulking a wood stove pipe

If I need to reapply caulk again in five years I'll remember to do it in the Summer to see if a few months of curing would reduce the caulking odor.

Oh, please open your windows if you are smelling the caulk burning off. When you breathe an odor you are actually taking in molecules of the "odor." (No wonder we don't like other people's poo odors . . .). Don't want to see you poison yourselves!

Is that product intended for outdoor use only? If your stove is drafting properly there should be no smoke leaking out the joints.
