I have a partyQ, and have used it for a few overnight cooks - worked great. I slept through the night without worrying about the fire. Did not have to wake up to kick the drum or anything. I put the grate probe in the top vent, figure out how much the dome temp runs hotter than the grate, and it just goes e.g. if I want 250 at the grate, the dome temp will be about 265. I homebrewed adapters for both of my drums.
