You pretty much end up with a minion burn. The coals on top are lit and it slowly burns down.
I personally don't do anything different because I like the results I am getting. I am just giving full disclosure that my cook times are shorter because the pbc has been running at 350 for me instead of the 290 as indicated by the documentation and others on this thread.
