Did you ever consider remotely mounting the firebox?

I think that's a good idea but would leave more room in case you wanted to run another baffle under the reverse flow like a c channel, to move that heat quickly to the center or other end of the smoker.
I have looked at a ton of designs and someone drew one up like that and thought it would work.
I would do all your temp testing before finishing the smoker in case it doesn't perform as you would like.
