I think, but I'm no physicist, that within the confines of the drum itself,
convection heat transfer is the indirect cause of effect wherein our foodstuff
cooks....Fire is hot and food is cold and a balance or transfer of temperature occurs and the result is food cooks. As with any size enclosed area there must be an adequate heat source to maintain temps....and heat said chamber...
