No it is used as a heat sink to keep the temp constant because the pit is a poorly designed pit from Academy Sports built by Old Country( Sponsor of the video series.) It has no baffle at the opening from the fire box. A UDS and Off Set are as different as Cows & Goats. Don't over think the process.
