Default Snake too short?

22.5 inch weber kettle
Making pulled pork using snake method
Meat is a 9# picnic shoulder cut
7 hours in with temps (per the maverick) between 225 and 275*
Just opened top to check meat and looks like I'm running out of charcoal
Did a two level 2x2 snake
Did I do something wrong?
Hope I don't need to add charcoal.

Snake too short?
How embarrassing I go two wide, two high followed by a single and a Chunk ever 3rd piece I leave about 8 " between the ends and dump about 15-20 hot coals to start off and a Chunk o wood at 275 I have never run out before a butt is done

I used chunks of hickory the same as you've described. Haven't run out. Just concerned. Probe at 187*
