Egts to low

My truck will blow smoke all day long when I have it tuned it will smoke a good amount but temps don't get to 1200 until 85 mph from dead stop something don't seem right if there is smoke there should be more heat right?

The smoke (black) is unburnt diesel fuel which does not equal heat. I have never had my truck reach 1250!! You are fine.
