    Reverse flow smokers have the exhaust and firebox on the same side and a baffle that forces the hot air to flow to the far end of the cooking chamber and then return to exit. It gives a more uniform temp across the chamber with this flow than a typical offset smoker (unless you add tuning plates and other tricks).
