How do I prevent tarry soot from accumulating in the wood-burning stove?

Tarry soot is caused by insufficient combustion temperature and/or wet wood.

Tarry soot increases the risk of chimney fires.  

Tarry soot can be recognised as a brown, sticky coating on the stove’s surfaces.

Low combustion temperature occurs when there is insufficient primary air during the lighting phase in relation to the quantity of wood used.
