"Smokers that utilize reverse flow draft, featuring a solid plate that closes up the firebox side of the smoking chamber. Smoke from the firebox is pushed to the far side of the smoker before it enters the smoking area.
Then it naturally travels back to the firebox side and out the chimney. This type of setup creates more even heat
in the smoking chamber than a smoker where the smoke enters the tank on the firebox side and goes straight to the chimney on the opposite side." - Internet opinion
