Default How to start a draft in a fireplace

In my case, I have a steel fireplace with galvanized chimney, and an
iron log rack.

You sure it is galvanized and not stainless? Usually wood burning
fireplaces require stainless, while gas use galvanized.

No, I'm not sure. YOu could be right. The only part I can really see
is the part above the second floor ceiling and the part above the
roof, and even then I can only see the outside layer. That is
galvanized, but I know there is insulation and then an inside layer.

The part I might see just above the chimney is dirty and I've never
looked closely at it or tried to clean it to see if it is stainless.
