that looks similar to the Klose Backyardchef. If the characteristics are similar, 30-50 degree span is about the best you will do, withthe vertical running cooler. It will take some time to master it, but i can get my BYC vertical within 30 degrees of the horiz by closing down the chimney about halfway and leaving the firebox dampers wide open. this will give me 220 in the vertical and 250 in the main.
Vertical however does not have even heat distribution, far bottom of the vertical is really far left of the horizontal and runs pretty cold.. but the shelf directly above the opening from the main into the vertical runs very hot. The shjelf above that runs cooler with a hot spot under the chimney.
it will take practice, but damper settings is the key.. damper the exhaust a little to hold in some heat and run the firebox wide open to keep the fire running clean.
