Would a short smoke stack manage better than none?
Absolutely. Chimneys exist because they create negative pressure causing the air to flow up through them. I have a smoke stack that I can remove (and re-size) coming out the side. When I use the full length pipe, it's 24" and I can open other ports I have near the top and have nothing coming out of them. If I shorten that pipe but not putting the 24" extension on it, then the smoke will definitely start coming out the other ports on the barrel.
