Thanks Don. I had heard of the minion method but obviously didn't give it enough attention. Here's a paragraph from the link page you provided and it's as if he was talking to me directly...
"Using Wood Chunks Or Logs Instead of Charcoal
The Weber Bullet is designed to use charcoal as its fuel source. Occasionally, someone notices that other types of cookers are fired using wood and attempts this in the WSM. Wood chunks or logs can be used, but with considerable effort, inconvenience, and expense. Wood must be burned down to hot coals in a separate container, then shoveled into the WSM, and this process must be repeated several times during the course of cooking. Also, wood is expensive, charcoal is cheap. Most people who try this once don't try it again."
I've been trying to do this using nothing but wood (except for a little charcoal to get it going).
