Drain wood chips. Prepare grill for indirect grilling. Test for medium-low heat above drip pan. Sprinkle half of the drained wood chips over the coals.
Place roast on grill rack directly over drip pan. Cover and grill for 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until internal temperature registers 155 degree F on an instant-read thermometer. Add more coals and remaining wood chips as needed during grilling.
