I haven't installed it on my smoker yet, just used my hands to heat and cool the pit probe to get the fan to start and stop. Maybe that is why I have not noticed the fan slowing and speeding. Thanks guys!
Usually you shall smoke meat at 225F, so calibrate at boiling point at 212F is enough.
The controller will predict the tendency or the "speed" of temperature changes, then decide the speed of fan.
