Most smoked salmon recipes call for low temps ~ 160-170

Example: this recipe using the YS640

I have the YSS640s (purchased new in June 2022) and I have had great success with brisket, pork butt, chicken wings... all typically at 225 and higher.

Tried the smoked salmon recipe and the smoker would not settle at 165, it would run much hotter @ about 190-200.

Is there a trick to maintaining a lower temp? Damper? (have it pushed in about 5" from the right per the general instructions)
