Do not disturb the process. do not open the cover, do not turn off the controller, do not turn to manually. Soon it will learn itsself. This is the feature of variable PID voltage output.
Wang, Thank you! I thought that might be the case, but it did have me a little concerned.

Now that I have the pork butt in so far its keeping the temp within 5 degrees. At first the temp went as high as 229 and now it has dropped back down to 220. Am I to assume at this point it is still learning the cooker. It has been an hour and 45 minutes since I first started the controller if that makes a difference.

Soon I want to add some more pecan and apple wood is that going to mess up the PID's learning process.
