How does the small handle overnight cooks? Also, does the Guru work with the Small?

Thanks,

    I never did an overnighter with my small, but, no reason it can't be done. Plenty of charcoal are the key words. I have a Guru and an adapter door for the small as well.......

    Didn't know if even if I filled it up to the top, if it would be enough lump to last for an overnighter. Anyone here use the small for overnights and can chime in?

    The small works just fine for overnights and the guru works just as well on the small as on any other Egg. As Egret says, there is an adapter that makes the Guru fit the small. I once did Three pork buts on the small. The buts were a little over 6 pounds each and i just squeezed them in. They started about 10 PM and came off around noon the next day. This was at fish camp and the pork was a relief from all the fish we had eaten.

    I have done overnight cooks on the small. I have had to add lump on a couple of occasions, but overall I've had good success. I suppose it also depends on what brand of lump you use.
