I think it's some kind of law of physics that says that heat rises to the point of escape or something like that. I can completely see how it would manage the heat distribution especially if it were spaced and managed in such a way. But that could turn into a lot of work. Without buying a lot of fancy equipment I'm thinking about setting up my laptop one night with the webcam on the smoker and have it take video for 5 minutes at a time. One in the middle and then the spicewine.
But here I go again down that over thinking the problem....
