Where is your fan mounted onto the offset?

Is your pit probe about where I put it in the pic?

At that point I just give up and shut it off.
If I had to take a stab in the dark I would say that your 50CFM is overkill for your 12x12x12 inch offset box. Maybe turn down the HDC setting to 25% and see what happens? That should bring it down to 12.5CFM which should be plenty.

Question: When you see the temps drop way below the target temps on the Wolf does the fan blow at full speed?

If yes, does the fan at full speed snuff out the fire?

If no, something is wrong it should be blowing at full speed if you are 30-40F below target temps.

You can start it below temp and it should bring it there automatically.

This eliminates the fan being the issue.
