TEC Infrared Smoker Rack - Way Too Hot!


New Member
Anyone here own the 26” TEC Infrared and use the smoker rack? I was super excited to give it a try because of the simple setup and cleaning, but am experiencing super hot temps with the dial cranked all the way to the lowest setting. It’s hitting around 340 degrees F.

I am using a bulk tank with two regulators, the second set at 10” WC (company specd 11). Plenty of ventilation around the built in.

So I’m scratching my head here and ready to conclude the smoking thing with TEC grills is just a gimmick

Thanks in advance for feedback.
