The opening from the firebox to the cook chamber is at the bottom of the cook chamber. The tuning plates I use are above the opening from the firebox to the cook chamber creating a deflector like you mention. Heat from the firebox is forced under the tuning plates and only allowed up to the grate where there are gaps between the plates. That's what helps to even out the temps.
