Yes, on an insulated pit a Guru or Stoker will often overshoot your target temp. These don't account for the gradual accumulation of heat in these type of cookers. However, you can do a stepped approach. For example if your target temp is 275, set the controller to 190*, overshoot will be level out to about 215*, set the controller to 230*, overshoot will level out to 245*, etc... PITA I admit but useful for an unattended overnight cook. My keg can be extremely air sensitive, so I will put the meat on during the ramping up period, so I don't have to open my cooker when the temp. is on target. The top vent is usually open just a crack too, I bet the exhaust vents on these safes should be 3/4 closed.
