The key is to be able to have a good bed of coals on the Weber, and add fuel as needed. If you are adding raw wood, you'll want to add small amounts at a time.

So, yeah, I think it is possible, but you will have to plan your cook, and keep a close eye on it.

If I'm not mistaken, Greg from Ballistic BBQ on YouTube did some steaks this very way using red oak splits burned down to coals, just for flavor.
