Turftech: I have your exact model and I have none of your temperature problems and I don't know any reverse flow owner (Lang or otherwise) that has them either. Actually, my unit my not be set up exactly as yours. The bottom of my fire box is lined with fire bricks and covered with a sheet of alum foil (for easy ash clean up plus it also reflects heat). Both the fire box door and the cook chamber lid have a seal and are leak proof. I also have a chimney extension, which Lang feels is a good idea (heat is prevented from going direct to the top of the chamber and out the chimney and forced to flow over the grates) but not good enough to include as original equipment.
I've asked you this before -- do you have an obstruction under the RF plate?
On smaller cooks, all you have to worry about is the temperature at the product but if you fill the cook chamber the temp differance could be a problem but you could work around it by moving product but that's a lot of unnecessary work. You need to solve the problem and I wish I could be of more help.
To be honest with you this sounds like you have a problem with the temp probes or the Maverik that you are using. I have a Maverik also and the probes are junk and the temps read all over the place. At present I am using the Termoworks ThermaQ and I get temps from 20 to 30 degrees different from one side to the other with my Lang 36 Hybrid Deluxe. I would try a different thermometer before I would condemn the Lang.
