Not a bad idea. I've done some experimentation with laminar and turbulent airflow with auto intakes and understand the theory and concepts as they pertain to turbo's etc. I've developed a product for Ford Powerstrokes that addressed eliminating some of the turbulent air intake issues.

I'm no braniac but when it comes to heat and thermal issues, I'm a noob. I think the turbulence could be inducted above the diffuser and several inches below the meat. Create a "swirling" convection effect as the heat rises and is exhausted.
