I believe your very much right on the dead end heat pocket. I also came up with the desire for a grill / hot plate and a oven. in the final build. Probably need two rockets one for grill and water and one for the oven. Here is my idea for the water. Do plan to keep the coil around the riser and have it feed the tank.

I did a little rework on the copper of my current rocket. It's supplying all the hot water I need for my BBQ kitchen. I can bring up 500 gallon up four degrees in 3-4 hours. A 5 gallon bucket packed wood and paper well give me 10 degrees. I'm hoping this well improve with the final build having more mass to capture the heat.
