IMO yes you need to put a damper on the flute to slow down the "draft" so the whole are in the cooker equalizes temp better. You can start a bigger fire and choke it down and it should hold temp well. I sort guessing though the pics too small to really tell whats going on. You have to find the balance between fire and airflow to get it to work correctly. If you look at Backwoods and Pitmakers and WSM's they all operate a a very little airflow concept in comparison to normal stick burners. I'm sure others will chime in shortly so dont tear it down yet.
