I use it sometimes. As BFD said, it starts decreasing your pit temp as the meat gets close to your preset finish temp. Once your meat is at it's finish temp it basically turns your pit into a holding oven. You can also start you pit at a higher temp than you normally would and let the pit temp drop to a more normal Q'n temp as the meat cooks.
