Installed a new stove it is a Drolet HT3000 with 24ft total in length (14ft double wall stove pjpe ) and 10 chimney pipe. I ramp up my stove till stove probe reads 600. I then cut the air all the way closed and my stove probe is reading 900ish for about a hour and then seems to settle from there. Is this normal?

It sounds like you might want to start turning down the air sooner. Maybe try closing the air 50% when the flue probe reaches 400º.
I am assuming that this probe is in the stovepipe, right? Is there another thermometer on the stovetop?

I will give that a try i do have a stove top thermometer as well. It takes a long time to get up to temp. And yes the probe is mounted and installed through the double wall pipe approx. 20" above the stove. I have no bends or offsets in the piping at all.

Yeah, try shutting down sooner. It will take some trial and error with a new stove but you also have a tall straight up chimney and a pipe dampner may be useful if those temps dont come down.

I close down the air fairly aggressively as long as it doesn't kill the fire or smolder. This thread is with a different stove and wood, but you might find these readings helpful.
