Cooking on a 25x55 reverse flow, wondering if keep the fire closer to opening in the cook chamber will it helps bring the left side of the bottom cooking grate up to the temp on the right side. I find the left side to be 20 degrees cooler that the right side closer to the firebox.

How is your air flow.......the fire side will be hotter on the one end and a way to even that temp out is to have good flow through the pit. Open the stack all the way and control temps with the fire box inlets. You may try and keep the fire in the back side of the fire box as well......20* is not that much of a difference really. You could tip the smoker up on the left a bit too and see what that does.

I have also found that raising or lowering the nose of the cooker can make a significant difference and you don't have to move it a lot.
