Can you explain or provide pictures as to why the fire can't burn up into the pellet box?

The initial burning torch will induce a draft to go up the pipe. Smoke will follow the easiest way up and so as long as pellets are blocking the hopper run then the smoke will continue going up the flue and out. Combustion needs air and fuel so the burning pellets won't travel up into the hopper since gaskets around the lids prevent air from seeping in from that direction.
