When the meat I.T. reaches to 180F, the fan is controlled by meat probe.
It will keep meat at 180F for long hours.

Usually I will keep Brisket Internal Temp. at 140F for 6 hours.

In sous Vide, you can "boil" beef at 140F for as long as 72 hours.
I just adopt Sous Vide theory to Low&Slow smoking.
Usually 130F shall be medium, and 140F as medium well done and never over 150F.

Just have a try, you may find a new way to smoking
So, when the meat reaches your target, say 190, the controller will bring the pit temperature down to 190 also. Do you then re-set the controller to 140, to keep it there for another 6 hours?
