Overnight fire issue

Hi guys,

I tried to cook a pork butt the last 2 Nights and the fire got down before I woke up in the morning...

First night I started the fire with both vent open and the egg reached 600°F before I could do something, so the whole ring was on fire before I put the butt. I closed the vents and stabilized the egg at 250°F with the butt inside. Anyhow it choked during the night.

Last night, same operation, but I started from fresh lumps, following naked whiz method, and build a small fire (300°F) put the butt in, and stabilized at 230°F for 3 hours before I went to bed... And this morning the egg was cold.

I removed everything and found out that all the fire grate holes were filled with ashes. Do you think it comes from my Lump ?

I hope I could achieve a long cook without temp regulators...
