I smoked some woodcock today and they were great.
 I marinated them for a couple hours in pineapple juice, garlic powder and thyme flakes.
 I put a small amount of hot coals on one side of the grill and covered them with soaked black cherry wood chips.  I placed the woodcock breasts on the other side of the grill over a drip pan.  I changed the hot coals and black cherry chips every 40 minutes and cooked for 2 hrs.
 They were terrific.

It sounds great.

I might be miss understanding something.

Why did you change the coals and chips every 40 minutes?

Also what temperature where you trying to maintain?

Thanks Iver.

If you google grilling with a charcoal grill, you'll get a lot of more detailed information.  I didn't use a thermometer, but you want the temp. between 225-250 f. The reason you change charcoal is you burn up the smaller amount you are using in about 40 minutes.  It's easiest if you have a second charcoal grill and/or charcoal chimney to get the next batch of charcoal started.  I also put new soaked wood chips on when I changed charcoal because the old batch starts to dry out and flame.

Ahh, thank you.    My confusion as I use the Minion Method.

I can get a 10-11 hour smoke out of a standard Webber kettle this way.  I place smoking wood strategically in the charcoal bed so that I achieve a continued smoke.   I monitor temps and adjust the airflow so rarely (sometimes never) open up the lid.

Thanks for the additional info.

I love the Minion method.  It is, simply, flawless in a Weber Smokey Mountain.  I get 225 degrees for about ten hours.
