Just bought Epic yesterday. It stays at500 degrees. I know that is way to hot. What can I do?? Would a regulator work?


The newer grills get hotter than the older grills. 500 after preheat is not uncommon on a brand new grill, but it will settle down after a few cookings to about 450. The old grills usually maxed out about 400.


For slow cooking ribs does the temp need to be around 400-450? Seems like that would be to hot but maybe not.

To lower the temp, fill the drip pan with water or apple juice before lighting the grill. It will also add moisture & the temp will slowly increase as the liquid boils away to finish with a nice brown crust.
