In other words, If I want the final temp on the controller to be 235*, I set it at 230*. It will then over-run this temp the first time to approx 238*-239* at which time I bump up the set point to 235*.
It will then drop to 227*-228* and climb back to 235* and over run to 240*-241*, drop to 229*, back up to 235* and over run to 240*-241* and cycle perfectly between these temperatures from that point on.
Sounds like yours is doing about the same as mine.

They're all different, and it sounds like yours is one of the best.
Some of them seem to over-run by 30° to as much as 50° on the start-up run.
Then if you just leave it alone it will over-run on the valley by 30°.
And 30° again on the peak, and again & again, and again for a long time.
The method I showed was designed to clean that mess up and get it stabilized in a short time.
Yours sounds like it doesn't have that problem, and doesn't need the method.
