Default backwoods

can someone explain to me how the heat source gets to the meat on a backwoods does the heat go around the perimeter of the water pan is this used as a heat diverter and why are the exhaust holes so low in the cook chamber read somewhere these were reverse flow how? (drawing, Diagram, website ,link)

You were right the first time. The heat hits the water pan and moves to the back of the cooker where it rises to the top of the chamber. It then banks down from the top of the chamber down to the exhaust holes located just above the water pan and then out the stove pipe. Now if you add a heat diverter it works the same except you protect your water pan and save burning through so much water.

actually the heat / smoke travel on the outside perimeter of the cooking chamber and enters at the top of cooking chamber on 3 sides, (left-right-rear) with the exhaust from the holes at bottom rear.
you also have the heat rising from the water tray area, but the bottom racks the meat will not have a bark on them, too close to the water
On my fat girl, the toprack runs about 20* hotter than the bottom
