There are mods you can do to even out the heat.. until you make some changes, you are stuck using the right side as a water heater and placing the food on the left side. A water pan will even out your heat to some degree (pun intended) but not completely.


Looks like you have a deflector but it's not working that well.. you may need a tuning plate as shown on this thread:




Do a search above for "Horizontal Offset Mods" and you should find some good reading material to set you in the right direction.
