Most of my temperature problems stem from the ash buildup when using briquets on a long slow cook. It will start out great hold temperature for a while then slowly creap down. I have the stack extended. Don't have the baffle, but did turn the larger grate in the chamber upside dow to act as a baffle once but couldn't get up to temp. My main problem should be solved by raising the charcoal/fire up off the bottom to allow the ash to fall down and not choke out the fire.

try a basket that holds the fire up off the bottom more than it already is. Your problem seems to be air flow control.

Also, when I started out I didn't have the side fire box and made the fire on one side of the grill, opposite from the stack. worked really well, might be something to try in the meantime.
