Why is the Kamado Joe III Diffusing Insert Called a Hyperbolic Insert?

Recommended Posts

I have a fairly good handle on the term’s meaning in mathematics (curves) and language (overemphasized truth), but I don’t understand its use to describe the diffuser.  Is some portion of it hyperbolic in shape?

In practice, design (or perhaps just marketing) the videos etc I've seen mapping out the smoke/heat patterns with the insert seem so be somewhat akin to a math theory of hyperbolic paraboloids - or like you mentioned, just the shape/curve of the insert.




But who knows...maybe you could just bolt two stainless steel bowls together (bottom to bottom) and throw it in a kamado and have it do the same thing...:)
