Another common method is to simply build the bell around the heat riser and dispense with the barrel. If you do this, you would benefit from installing a metal access panel in the bell for maintenance of the riser, and instant heating. A fault of some small bell RMHs has been the absence of a fast radiation source, thus making the users keep feeding it for hours until the space warms and then having the space overheat because there was too much heat stored in the mass.
