Based upon the missing hair on my arms and blisters on my hands, I'd say 75% of the heat goes straight up 15% sides and about 10% bottom. I have about a 4" draft from the bottom to the charcoal grate.
I'm going to be cooking on it again this week and I'll shoot some temps around the box just to see how and where the heat is.
I was thinking on having one ceramic coated for chits and giggles.
Welding gloves and long utensils are helpful for those items that are not skewered and need turning.
I have read, even with the diatomaceous earth type Konro's that a board is often placed between the bottom of Konro and the table or setting surface.
