Default Equalizing horizontal and vertical chamber temps?

Hey guys I'm still learning how to cook on my new pit. It's an offset with a 24 x 24 firebox with a 24 x 72 horizontal chamber and 30 x 30 x 48 or so vertical chamber. The temps oddly are higher on left side(away from firebox side) of the horizontal but not by much, maybe 15*s. That's not a big deal to me. The vertical chamber is about 75* cooler than the horizontal though. What would be the best way to equalize the two chambers? Even if I could get them within 20*-25* I would be ok with that. I decided I'd rather have the vertical as a cooker and not just a warmer. I was thinking maybe adding tuning plates would help, but I'll ask you guys. Here's some pics.

The first two pics are of the flap between the vertical and horizontal taken from inside the vertical. The third pic is of the baffle/deflecter between firebox and the horizontal chamber from inside the chamber.
