Pictures for Soub. The burners go horizontally into the kiln and there is a deflector right at the back. I've added an extra one two thirds along each side, as it fires more evenly with them there.
the flue exit is horizontal from the bottom at the back, damper about a foot later just before it begins to curve upwards.
I have been using two smaller bottles, changed to one big (47kg) one part way through the last firing. Normally we'd use two per burner on the salt glaze kiln I share. My kiln seems to be doing fine on one (and I can't stretch to the cost of another yet!)
There is a thread on clayart forum started yesterday about firing propane fuelled gas kilns- could be useful!
