I have done it with lump, and it works well, but do what Fiddy said and get another charcoal grate running at a 90 degree angle to avoid losing smaller pieces.

I find that the lump burns a little hotter, which makes it a bit more difficult to choke down using the OTS. With briqs, I'm already only open about 1/3 of the way for most of the cook, so choking it down further than that takes a very light touch.
If I told people what I use to cook, they probably wouldn't want to eat my food...
