Question about multi-step mode
« on: November 19, 2020, 10:12:44 PM »
I've been manually stepping up temps on my 3D digital smoker.  It will run 10 degrees F. over my setpoint then settle back to the setpoint.  I let is sit for a particular time then ramp it up again. This has prolonged the smoke times and resulted in some great results.  I would now like to simply program the smoker to operate independently in the same manner.

My Question: 
Does the timer in Multi-step mode start when the temperature first reaches the setpoint or after it overruns the setpoint then settles back to the setpoint?

Hope that makes sense.
Thanks,
Smokin Jon

It should start when the set point is first reached.
