It dropped to 180 but my alarm redi check woke me up and got it going again , I must say though it had to be adjusted throughout the cook , I would say the weather in Melbourne had a lot to do with it , I had rain ,wind to contend with but overall was happy with it , with a fan to control my kamado it be a breeze , but I enjoy the process.
I put it on from 12 am took it off next day at five pm , the charcoal to my amazement was under half used .

You'll realise the more long cooks you do just his efficient the Kamados are! You will also learn to build to pile of charcoal better, just by looking at how it how burnt. Soon you'll master it and won't need a temp controller.
Fluctuation in temp are really not a big deal when doing low and slow, at the end of the day, it's hard pressed to tell the difference between something cooked at 225 to say 250-260. Read through some of Shaynes threads on high temp pulled pork.
