This is the second time this has happened, I get the smoker all set up and running and go to bed and when I wake up the fire box is overflowing with pellets

Are you priming it to long ? After each cook I always clean it and use my shop vac to clean the bottom

My advice is never sleep with it left unattended. The "chute" isnt deep enough so dead pockets form when no pellets will fall. You have to periodically help it out and move pellets by hand or with a stick to get them to fall correctly.
