This article includes information on what to do if an AC grill is running too hot.
An improper start-up can affect the temperature of a cook even hours in.
Smoke is a temperature range between 160° and 225°. As long as the temp is in or close to that range, the grill is operating correctly.
Higher temperatures outside may cause the grill to run a little hotter than expected.
You will know by seeing a small hole, a blank black sticker, or a sticker that reads “Call Service” on the controller to the right of the LED screen (WiFIRE grills do not have p-settings).
Traegers, just like conventional ovens cook on an average. The difference is that Traegers will give you a real time read out while conventional ovens will show you a real time read out while it pre-heats and then will show you the set temp. If the average temp is within 15 degrees of the set temp the grill is working accurately.
