That is close to where I have the pit probe, its closer to the top but still on the left side.
When it drops way below temp, It will blow full speed for less than a minute then it will stop and give bursts every 5 minutes or so. It doesn't come anywhere close to bringing temp back after 30+minutes.
I had it set up at Set 1 SC1=225 TC1=720 AL1=160 AH1=250 SC2=0000
Set 2 P1 =195 T=120 P2=170 P3= 250
F-C = 0001 SL1=1111 SL2=1011 HDC=0100
When I was running it I had the meat probe outside the smoker.
