Default How much charcoal for a 1 hr smoke?

I am smoking a beef tenderloin on a WSM on was wondering if one full chimney starter is enough coal? I dont really want to use Minion Method on something that short, even though the virtualweberbullet site suggests it. Thoughts?

Thanks!

So it takes a full chimney with the wsm for just a one hour smoke??? I'm guessing the 22 inch wsm?

I don't have a WSM, but with my UDS I like to keep my coal basket at least half way full at all times regardless of how short the cook is going to be.
