I have to tell you, 3 pages of great, and valuable information, and you answered me entire question/questions with one single paragraph. THIS is exactly what I was looking for. I went home tonight, reset my offset values, turned set the SV @ 205f and walked away for an hour. Came back, put some coffee in the PF, put my Thermocouple over the lip, and let it run. At about 45 seconds in it was +-.3 of 200f and it held that +- continually.
I've read threads until my eyes are nearly bloody, but seriously, this one piece of info, has put me in a place, where I can now feel confident to put the rest of research to practice. So, Thank you.
