Method and system for adjusting a measured reheat outlet steam temperature ("R.sub.PV") to approximate a reheat outlet steam temperature setpoint ("R.sub.SP") in a boiler. An R.sub.PV is compared to an R.sub.SP. If the R.sub.PV is less than the R.sub.SP and a position of a fuel nozzle tilt ("TILT.sub.PV") is below a high limit of the fuel nozzle tilt ("TILT.sub.HIGH"), the TILT.sub.PV is increased while a flow rate of a secondary flue gas recirculation ("SFGR.sub.PV") is kept constant. If the R.sub.PV is less than the R.sub.SP and the TILT.sub.PV is at the TILT.sub.HIGH, the SFGR.sub.PV is increased. If the R.sub.PV is greater than the R.sub.SP and the SFGR.sub.PV is greater than a low limit of flow rate of the SFGR ("SFGR.sub.LOW"), the SFGR.sub.PV is decreased, while the TILT.sub.PV is kept constant. If the R.sub.PV is greater than the R.sub.SP and the SFGR.sub.PV is at the SFGR.sub.LOW, the TILT.sub.PV is decreased.
